Auto ads

Exclude areas on your pages from showing Auto ads (beta)

You can choose areas where you don't want to show Auto ads across your pages with similar layouts. For example, you might not want to show ads immediately below the header on your pages.

Exclude an area

  1. Sign in to your AdSense account.
  2. Click Ads.
  3. In the table of all your sites, click Edit Edit next to your site.
  4. Under "Ad settings", in the "Excluded areas" section, click Manage.
  5. In the ad settings preview, review the ad areas on your page. When you hover over an area it pushes out your content to indicate how an ad might affect your page.
    Note: Ad areas show possible places where ads might appear on your site. Auto ads will only place ads in a subset of the areas shown in the preview.
  6. Select an ad area to exclude in-page ads from showing.

    The status of the ad area changes to "Excluded", and the ad area is added to your list of excluded areas.
