People still find it difficult to create their own ads unit on AdSense and they have no choice but to make use of the auto ads placement. the auto ads placement is also good, its a kind of new way Google Adsense uses to place ads on your page with just a simple code and then they use this code to automatically display different ads sizes to your website without you stressing out.
Not everyone like this auto ads placement, because random sizes of ads just show on your website and sometimes it just damage the beauty of your website or probably chase your visitors away and at the same time, placing just ads unit might not get you all the ads futures, like the anchor ads that stick to the edge of a user’s screen and it can be easily dismissible. also, you won’t have the advantage to use the vintage ads that appear between page load(mobile-full screen). Basically, “an ad unit is one or more Google ads displayed as a result of one piece of the AdSense ad code. you can create, customize and manage ad units on the ads page in your AdSense account.
You can only get these ad unit settings only if you get approved for Google Adsense,
To get started,
(1) login to your Adsense account. on your Dashboard, at the left side of your control panel click on the >Ads<, then there will be a list of >Overview>Ad balance>Custom channels>Url channels>Other products. Click on the -Overview-
(2) After clicking on -Over view-, There are two options that will be displayed, by site and by ad unit, click on the -by ad unit-
There are three types of ads unit that will be displayed,
–Display ads: a great all-rounder that is designed to work well anywhere
-in-feed ads: match the look of your site and fit in between posts and listings.
–in articles ads: also match your site and work well with articles and content page
(3) now pick your choice and click any of those three(3) have listed above. I will choose in feed to show you some examples and settings.
After clicking of any of those three(3) which mine will be in feed just for explanation, there will be like a ads preview at the left side of the settings, and at the right-hand side, there will be a general setting for the ads.
these are the settings you can work with:
–GLOBE OPTIONS: this option allows you to change the font, background color, border size, and also text wrap and allow selected display ads options.
–IMAGE: this option allows you to set the size of the image ads that will display on your website, the height, and width, like the image aspect ratio, also allows you to set where the picture stays either the left-hand side or the right-hand side.
–HEADLINE: these settings allow you set the font of the headline displayed on the ads like the ads tittle which means you can choose the headlines that match the size of the headline in your feeds and it also as a padding setting.
–DESCRIPTION: this allows you to switch on ads description and also to switch it off. it also has the settings for the font which you can change to any kind of font you want.
–URL: this allows you to set the size of the ads URL and also choose the kind of color you would like the URL to look like on your website.
(4) After choosing the type of ad unit and after you have made all your settings to it, now click on – save and get codes- located down at the right-hand side. after saving and getting the code, you will now need to paste that code to your HTML on your website between the open head tag; <head> and the close head tag; </head> for the code to work and for ads to start displaying on your site (this code will only work if your website had been approved for Adsense).
you can also use this code on multiple places on your website and different ads will show depending on where the code is implemented. Now you have your new ads unit. for users using Blogspot as their website control panel, you can read how to set your AdSense code here: learn how to set your AdSense code
