Ad code implementation

Where to paste the ad code in your HTML (ad units)

It's important that you paste your ad unit code between the <body> and </body> tags of your page. If you paste the ad code outside the <body> tags it will prevent your ads from appearing correctly.

Positioning the ads on your site with HTML

Just like the other elements of your site (images, paragraphs, etc.), you can change the position of your Google ads by using HTML tags (<div>, <table>, etc.). For example, if you surround your ad code with the HTML tags <div align="center"> and </div>, your ads will appear in the center of your page.

<html>
<head>
This is the head of your page
<title>Example HTML page</title>
</head>
<body>
This is the body of your page.
<div align="center">
<script async src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script>
<!-- Homepage Leaderboard -->
<ins class="adsbygoogle"
style="display:inline-block;width:728px;height:90px"
data-ad-client="ca-pub-1234567890123456"
data-ad-slot="1234567890"></ins>
<script>
(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
</script>
</div>
</body>
</html>
