CentOS 7.x Configure mediawiki to display google adsense advertizements

Enable auto-ads using HeadScript extension

Google has created auto-ads which require putting only one JS script between head and /head elements. That can be done via Headscript extension ( https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:HeadScript ) which is very straightforward (Single PHP file) to setup and use.

On local machine this usage led to undefined variable type warning. So commenting entire $wgExtensionCredits[$type][] variable with php /* */ comments seems to have solved the problem.


Debug ads not getting displayed issue

For ads to get displayed the site need to go through:

Each of these steps might take a few days for google to complete from their side. Once all three steps are done, the ads should get displayed and there might be corresponding revenue also.


Display fixed adds in header and footer using site hooks

  1. Create Google Adsense Account
  2. Optionally, Link adsense account to youtube channel
  3. Create appropriate ad unit for displaying ads on mediawiki and get script code.
  4. Paste script code in Localsettings.php file to display google adsense in mediawiki


Header advertizement script

$wgHooks['SiteNoticeAfter'][] = function(&$siteNotice, $skin) {
        $siteNotice .= <<< EOT
<script async src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script>
<!-- XXX -->
<ins class="adsbygoogle"
     style="display:block"
     data-ad-client="ca-pub-xxxxxx"
     data-ad-slot="xxxxxx"
     data-ad-format="auto"
     data-full-width-responsive="true"></ins>
<script>
(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
</script>
EOT;
        return true;
};

Remember to replace script in above code with script available in your google adsense account related to the ad

Footer advertizement script

$wgHooks['SkinAfterContent'][] = function(&$data, $skin) {
        global $myAdCode;
        $data .= '<div style="text-align:center;">';
        $data .= <<< EOT
<script async src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script>
<!-- XXX -->
<ins class="adsbygoogle"
     style="display:block"
     data-ad-client="ca-pub-xxxxx"
     data-ad-slot="xxxxx"
     data-ad-format="auto"
     data-full-width-responsive="true"></ins>
<script>
(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
</script>
EOT;
 
        $data .= '</div>';
        return true;
};

Remember to replace script in above code with script available in your google adsense account related to the ad

    $wgGoogleAdSenseSlot = 'none'; // Slot ID for your AdSense script (example: 1234580893)
    $wgGoogleAdSenseID = 'none'; //Name of ad unit created above. This would be part of Adsense script comment
