How to enable Google Adsense New Ad Format - Adsense Auto Ads on your website?


Google Adsense announced a new Google Adsense Ad Type called "Adsense Auto Ads" 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. Publishers need to place one piece of code just once to all the pages where Auto Ads need to be displayed, and Google would take care of the rest. This is similar to Vignette Ads and Anchor Ads if you have already enabled those already. Likewise, Google has grouped Vignette Ads and Anchor Ads under the Auto Ads category.

There is an advantage to this - ease of use, ad optimization as Auto ads will identify any available ad space and place new ads there, potentially increasing your revenue.

As per the post in the Google Inside Adsense, Auto ads will work on new sites and also on those sites where Google Adsense is already showing ads. Which means more ads!

How to enable Adsense Auto Ads?

  • Sign in to AdSense account.
  • In the left navigation panel, click on 'My ads' and select Get Started. (If you don't see Get Started, Auto Ads are under 'MyAds' > Content)
  • On the "Choose your global settings" page, select the ad formats that you'd like to show and click Save. Just click on the toggle / switch buttons to enable or disable.

  • On the next page, Google Auto Ads code will be generated and displayed. Click Copy code.
  • Paste the ad code between the < head > and </ head > tags of each page where you want to show Auto ads.
  • Auto ads will start appearing on your pages in about 10-20 minutes.

After enabling Google Adsense Auto Ads, you can monitor the appearance of the ads. And if desired, you can also apply specific settings for specific URLs, Domains, Sub-Domains, Pages etc at URL group settings, which will override the global  Adsense Auto Ads settings..

You can create different settings for specific groups of URLs (domains, subdomains, site sections or pages). For example, you might not want to show ads on homepage.
