In your site's Layout component, add the adsbygoogle script to HTML Head by using the react-helmet npm package.

import React from "react" import Header from "./header" import Footer from "./footer" import "../styles/style.scss" import { Helmet } from 'react-helmet' const Layout = props => { return ( <React.Fragment> <Helmet> script async src="" /> </Helmet> <div className="wrapper"> <Header /> {props.children} </div> <div className="footer"> <Footer /> </div> </React.Fragment> ) } export default Layout

Once your Layout is saved, add a component for your Google Ads with your client number.

import React, { Component } from 'react'; class GoogleAds extends Component { componentDidMount() { (window.adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); } render() { return ( <ins className='adsbygoogle' style={{ display: 'block' }} data-ad-client= 'ca-pub-YOUR_CLIENT_NUMBER' data-ad-slot={this.props.slot} data-ad-format= 'auto' data-full-width-responsive="true" > </ins> ); } } export default GoogleAds;

Finally, inside your blog post, import the GoogleAds component and return the GooglAds tag with your slot number.

import GoogleAds from "../components/GoogleAds"; const BlogPost = props => { return ( <Layout> <div> <h1>{}</h1> <span> Posted on {}{" "} ({} minute read) </span> <div> <GoogleAds slot="YOUR_SLOT_NUMBER" /> </div> <div dangerouslySetInnerHTML={{ __html: }} className="blog-post" > </div> </div> <div className="comments"> <Comments /> </div> </Layout> ) }
