Each ad in your sidebar can be linked to a corresponding location on your blog or a site outside of your blog if you want to.

Here’s how you can customize them:

You can create an image of your choice and have it say whatever you want. Here is a simple tutorial on how to easily create graphics for your sidebar ads.

Here are the image sizes for the different themes;
Builder’s Theme – 250×250 pixels
Grower’s Theme – 250×270 pixels
Achiever’s Theme – 250×270 pixels
Performer’s Theme – 250×260 pixels 
Progress Theme – 250×250 pixels

Next, you need to upload those new graphics to your media library. Go to + New > Media and follow the prompts to select an image from your computer and add it to your dashboard.

When the image has been uploaded, it will show up beneath the upload box. Click Edit, and it will bring you to this screen where you can copy the URL of the file you just uploaded.

Open a new tab and navigate to Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets.

Look for PSMU – Adspace Widget in the bottom left area, and drag it into the sidebar where you want your ad to appear on the right.

Fill in the blanks as necessary. The Title is optional, the Image URL is the one to your ad graphics discussed above, and the Link URL is the destination where you want the ad to connect to.

Leave the Ad Code and Alt Text areas blank and hit Save in the bottom.
