Ads font face customization

You can set a custom font as the account default, to show in all content ad units. You can also choose custom settings on individual ad units.

Available font faces to choose from

You can select from the following font faces: Arial, Times, Verdana, Open Sans, Open Sans Light, Roboto Light, Ubuntu Light and Lora. Through our testing, we found that these fonts performed best across publisher sites.

We're also continuing to experiment with additional font faces, and will be sure to announce any new options once they become available.

Select a custom font for your ads

There are two ways to set custom fonts: across your entire account for all AdSense for content units or for individual ad units.

To set a custom font as the default for all your AdSense for content ad units

  1. Sign in to your account.
  2. Click the gear icon in the upper right corner of any tab, then, from the drop-down list, select Settings.
  3. In the sidebar, click Ad display.
  4. From the drop-down menus, choose your preferred font family and font size.
  5. Click Save.

Your font settings will be reflected soon in all your AdSense for content ad units that are set to use default font preferences.

To set custom fonts for individual ad units

If you're creating or updating an individual ad unit, you can choose a custom font while generating your ad code:

  1. Sign in to your account.
  2. Visit your My ads tab.
  3. Choose your custom font:
    For new ad units:
    1. Click +New ad unit.
    2. In the "Ad style" section for this ad unit, click Use custom settings, then choose your font family and font size preferences from the drop-downs.
    3. Customize your ad unit, click Save and get code, then add the ad code to your pages.
    For existing ad units:
    1. Find and select the name of your ad unit in the list.
    2. In the "Ad style" section for this ad unit, click Use custom settings, then choose your font family and font size preferences from the drop-downs.
    3. Click Save. Your font changes will be reflected within about 10 minutes.
Please note that if you customize the font settings of an individual ad unit, changes that you make to your account-wide default font settings will not be applied to that ad unit.
