This recipe shows you how to place an ad on a Ghost site using AdPlugg. This recipe just adds a single ad but you can use it to add any number of ads by combining it with other recipes, etc. The recipe uses the AdPlugg Ad Snippet (which will work on any site) but the instructions in this recipe are specific to a Ghost site.
This recipe will only put the Ad on your Ghost website. If you want the Ad to appear on your Ghost newsletters as well, see this recipe instead.
First, we need to create an AdPlugg Ad.
Now we are going to add an AdPlugg Ad Tag to one of your Ghost Posts. We are going to do it using Ghost's HTML card.
Now, we are going to save the Ad Tag as a Ghost Snippet so that we can easily use it in other Posts.
Note that if you don't expect to use this particular Ad on other posts, you can skip this step.
Your snippet will now be available from the bottom of the cards list when you press the (+) button from the Post editor.
Now, we'll test the Post and our Ad to make sure that it looks right.
When you are ready, Publish the post!
You can easily add AdPlugg Ad Tags to anywhere in Ghost that supports cards by using the technique described above. This includes both Ghost Posts and Pages.
You can also use AdPlugg Zones to serve different (or the same) ads into these various areas.
