How to Create a Fixed Sponsor Ad on a WordPress Site
I hate Adsense, but I believe display ads are a necessity for modern web publishers who wish to monetize their work. Projects like Brave and Coil are working on unobtrusive monetization solutions, but they won’t be ready for mainstream adoption anytime soon. For now, I’ve chosen to stick with a small old fashioned HTML/CSS fixed display ad inspired by Daring Fireball, The Loop, and of course Carbon Ads. I didn’t see any tutorials on how to implement this kind of sponsor ad in WordPress without a plugin, so I decided to share my process in this post.
How it Looks
On displays larger than 1200px in width, the sponsor ad is fixed in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.
