HOW ADSENSE WORKS IN 2016
If you have a website in a niche that receives good, targeted traffic, you can use Google AdSense to help monetize it by showing banners. Start by creating an AdSense account with Google Adsense for “Site Targeted” ads.

There are various AdSense ad block sizes to choose from. It’s typically agreed on that the most useful banner size is 300 x 250 – it fits neatly in blog articles for dynamically sized browsers, including WordPress.
From there, it’s a matter of testing and tweaking to see which banner size (and what placement) works best for you.
