How to Place Adsense Auto Ads in Genesis Theme

Recently I added Adsense Auto Ads to my genesis theme and I just want to tell you how easy it all was. But before we go, let me first introduce you to Adsense Auto Ads, perhaps the most innovative kind of ad type in the industry. You just have to place one piece of code on your website and Adsense will automatically identify the best locations on your blog and place ads on your behalf. You no longer need to mess up with a lot of different ad codes of different ad formats.

Benefits of Using Adsense Auto Ads

To decide where to place an ad, Adsense Auto Ads uses machine learning. I see some great benefits of using this powerful way to place ads on a website. Here are some worth mentioning –

  • Easy to Use and Save Time- Since you have to place one little code on your website, it is not only easy but also time-saving. If you want or do not want to show a particular ad format, you can turn it on or off from your Adsense account like we do in the Infolinks ad network.
  • Google Adsense Knows it Better – Beginners like me don’t know where should they place ads for optimized profit and the best user experience. Let Adsense decide ad placement on your behalf because it knows better.
  • Increase Revenue and Improve User Experience- Auto ads put ads where they are most likely to be clicked. Also, it would be great to utilize the long empty spaces without ads in long articles.

Note – If you already have Adsense Ads placed on your blog, you don’t need to remove them. Auto Ads will take into account all those. Or you can remove some low-earning ads. It’s entirely up to you.
