Click Install Now, then click Activate.

Click on Appearance > Widgets - there is a new block Widgets for Shortcodes:

Repeat the same steps to add text widgets into new block and paste within the AdSense code, but leave the title fields empty.

Note at the bottom of each widget a small code snippet [do_widget id=text-3]:

Copy it near the AdSense code on your computer.

Now open the Post and replace the code block with the shortcode and update the post:

Open the browser – now the last post has two AdSense ads and these are activated by the shortcode we just added. In the sidebar you see the AdSense Example Ad delivered by the sidebar widget:
