Creating an AdSense-Compliant Privacy Policy for WordPress

Creating an AdSense-Compliant Privacy Policy for WordPress

Along with an “About” page and a “Contact” page, Google requires that all websites hosting AdSense advertisements have Privacy Policy pages clearly explaining the use of cookies for displaying advertisements. Fortunately, there is a WordPress plugin that allows you to add a Privacy Policy to your website in seconds. I use it here, and it is called “Easy Privacy Policy.”

1. Log in to your WordPress admin page. Click “Plugins” on the left side of the page, and then click the “Add New” button.

2. Type “Easy Privacy Policy” in the search box, and then click “Search Plugins.”

3. Click the “Install Now” link under “Easy Privacy Policy,” and then click “OK.”

4. Click “Activate Plugin.” This returns you to the Plugins page.

5. Click the “Settings” link under “Easy Privacy Policy.”

6. Edit the text boxes to have your Privacy Policy display the text you like, or simply click “Create Privacy Page.” If you are not using a custom menu for WordPress, your Privacy Policy becomes viewable immediately.
