4. WP Advanced Ads
The Advanced Ads plugin provides you with all the necessary tools to manage, place, target, and optimize all kinds of ads on your website. However, a unique feature of Advanced Ads is its deep integration with Google AdSense. So you can connect your website to your AdSense account and import ads from your account with one click without having to copy ad codes manually, and change their layout.
You can also optionally view the sales of your ads and alerts from your account in the backend. Furthermore, Advanced Ads takes care of creating a correct ads.txt file for you and can automatically integrate both the verification code and the codes for Auto Ads and AMP Auto Ads.
By enabling the premium add-ons of Advanced Ads, you can extend the functionality even further. For example, with features like Click Fraud Protection to protect your account, Lazyload for better page speed, Sticky AdSense ads, or the automatic conversion of standard AdSense ads into the AMP format.
Do remember none of these plugins let you add AdSense for search, and you should use it. Search box powered by AdSense helps your readers to find content on your blog, and you earn a decent income from this extra unit. You can see the maximum allowed AdSense units here.
My suggestion for you is: Instead of using 2-3 plugins, use one which solves your purpose. Pick the one who let you add ads from other ad networks also.
