Well, placing both codes right after another is not a solution, and by this way both ads will appear vertically instead of horizontal. To show ads side by side in a horizontal way there are two possible ways to do, first one is by using table and, the second way is by use of floating divs. So lets start by assuming, you already aware to show ads on desired position.

1. Simple Table Method

In this method we will create simple table of one row with two columns. Now, simply you just have to copy / paste the following piece of table in your table in your sidebar widget or any of your other desired place, just make sure to replace ad-code with the exact ad code you recieved from your ad network.

<table><tr><td>ad-code</td><td>ad-code</td></tr></table>

 

Here, tr is used for rows and, td for columns. So, in case you want to show 3 ad units side by side, then simply add one more <td> element along its closing tag, same like following code;

<table><tr><td>ad-code</td><td>ad-code</td><td>ad-code</td></tr></table>

That’s it, no complication at all. To make space in between ads, replace the following code with below one;

<table><tr><td style=”padding-right:5px;”>ad-code</td><td>ad-code</td><td>ad-code</td></tr></table>

2. Floating Divs
In this method we will use div to keep chunk of code on place, adn then via CSS we will assign a floating property. This method is recommend and much better than tables, because it also works in responsive templates / themes and on reducing screen size than the combined the length of both ad units, ad units will move to vertical up and down straight from horizontal side by side. Just copy / paste the following code to your desired position.

<div style=”float:left;”>ad-code</div>
<div style=”float:right;”>ad-code</div>

Now replace ad-code with your adsense code script and then hit save button.
