Google announced on their Webmaster Central Blog two days ago that they have officially released their first wordpress publisher plugin that would help wordpress users easily incorporate their Adsense codes or even verify their webpages for webmaster tools without having to go through all the geeky processes of editing their blog’s theme files. Below is a quote from their website.
“We’ve heard from many publishers using WordPress that they’re looking for an easier way to work with Google products within the platform. Today, we’re excited to share the beta release of our official Google Publisher Plugin, which adds new functionality to publishers’ WordPress websites. If you own your own domain and power it with WordPress, this new plugin will give you access to a few Google services — and all within WordPress.”
For now, this plugin supports only two Google products namely, Google Adsense and Webmaster Tools. You no longer have to worry about placing your Adsense codes in your theme as you only have to install the plugin, input your publisher ID and select where you would love your ads to be displayed encouraging better conversion rates and in regards revenue.

For now, the plugin is still a beta release and probably would get updated with more features in my opinion. I would expect to seeing them come up with support for features such as the Youtube, Google Analytics and Google + products.
