Shortcodes are just that, short bits of code that cut down on repetitive strings of HTML, and can be inserted anywhere in your site.
For instance, you could create a shortcode to insert a call to action button, or to display a Google AdSense ad, or to create 3 columns of content without any HTML markup.
What do shortcodes look like?
A shortcode is a descriptive bit of text wrapped in square brackets, e.g. [adsense] – which could be dropped into your WordPress post to display a block of Google ads.
