How to enable Google Adsense Auto Ads on your website?

Categories: ,

There was a time when website owners used to manually insert Google Adsense Code on websites to monetize. Then came Google Auto Ads, where Google automatically places Adsense ads on your website. In this post, we will see how to enable Google Adsense Auto Ads on your website?

Google Adsense Auto Ads was announced in a post on Inside Adsense on 21 February 2018. In the post Google mentioned that Adsense Auto ads will use machine learning to make smart ad placement and monetization decisions, saving you time. Unlike manually placing Google Adsense code, publishers need to place code just once to all the pages where Auto Ads need to be displayed, and Google would take care of the rest as far as display of ads is concerned. As per the post in the Google Inside Adsense, Auto ads will work on new sites and also on sites where Google Adsense is already showing ads.

Benefits of using Google Adsense Auto Ads

Google Adsense Auto ads offer a simple and innovative way for you to monetize. With Google Auto ads, you place one piece of code, and Google ads will appear across your site. Google Auto ads scans your site and automatically place ads where they’re likely to perform well and potentially generate more revenue.

While manually adding Google Adsense code gives the website owner exclusive control where to display ads, it may be tedious if you want to experiment with various ad layout, size and frequency. Google Adsense Auto Ads also has its own benefits.

  • Potentially increase your revenue as Auto ads analyze your pages and find new places to show ads based on your layout, content, and existing Google ads.

  • Google Auto ads are mobile friendly. Auto ads automatically adjust to every screen size.
