Integrating Google AdSense with DNN 4.5.2

DotNetNuke 4.5.2 has given us yet another great default function for our websites. Like many individuals I use Google AdSense to provide content based advertising to my users.  Traditionally to integrate Google Adsense you were forced to put a "Text/HTML" module on a page and then add the Javascript to either the source view of the editor, or to the header or footer of the module.  Well in DNN 4.5.2 the core team has added a "Google AdSense" module which makes the integration a breeze!  This article will walk you through the few short steps needed to configure the module and get you started!
