This post is aimed for blogger or blog owner or maybe anyone who monetize their website with Google AdSense. AdSense has been recognized as the best advertising and content monetizing platform among bloggers and publishers. Earlier, whenever publishers used to publish a new content, they would also determine the location inside the content to place AdSense code. If they are using a dynamic website or a content management system (CMS) such as WordPress, Joomla, Magento or others. They usually set the location or slot just once to place ads and the ads location gets filled with live Google ads automatically across all web pages once the page is loaded. This mechanism used to keep the same ads display format across the site wide. Now with AdSense Auto Ads, all this has become much easier. We will learn what Adsense Auto ad is and how to Place or Integrate AdSense Auto Ads in Blogger Platform?
Think of a situation where you have placed 5 ads on a single page. Some of your web pages have bigger content and are equivalent to more than 5 pages or can be 10 scroll long. All your ads are placed in such a way that a user would see all of them in 2 scroll and when he scrolls down past there is no ads. In this situation, the publisher is losing out on potential revenue or opportunity to monetize the content past two scroll. Some of the publishers does’t know where to place the AdSense ads code to get highest attention or exposure or impression. They don’t know which location of a web page gets highest clicks or highest visibility which could turn out to be the highest revenue generator by placing the ads code there.
This is why Google introduced the Auto Ads feature in AdSense. By implementing AdSense Auto Ads, you let Google decide how to place different formats of AdSense ads at different locations determined by Google and its algorithm. As per Google “Auto ads use machine learning to make smart placement and monetization decisions on your behalf, saving you time. Place one piece of code just once to all of your pages, and let Google take care of the rest.” Yes, If you are using WordPress, Blogger, Joomla or any other CMS platform, you just need to place Auto Ads code once inside the header and it gets loaded across the whole website.
