In WordPress you can add the code on a Text Widget. Or you can add it directly in your Template where you want ads to show up.

I will use an example of WordPress Text Widget. If you do not know how to use  WP  Widgets watch this video first.

  • First, drag a Text Widget to the Widget Area where you want the ads.
  • Then paste in the Facebook Placement code you’ve just copied.
  • Then Save .
  • And then clear your cache if you use a cache plugin .
  • Then on your Mobile Phone visit the page with the ad. On the same browser, ensure you are logged into your Facebook account . The account you used for completing all the above processes.
  • You will see some Ad location on your mobile Website. Currently, it is only visible to you. As soon as you visited the page, Facebook got alerted to review your Website. They may Accept . And they may reject your website. You will be informed of the outcome via email.
  • Then go back to the AD Network Dashboard, click on Payout. And add your details to facilitate Payout.
