Optimization best practices

  • Blend, complement, and contrast

    Use these techniques to design ad styles that will be successful for your site.
  • Maximize ad space with multiple ad units

    Provided you don't have more ads than content on your pages, you can put multiple ad units on each page of your site.
  • Most popular ad sizes

    Our most optimal sizes are 720x90, 336x280, 160x600, and the 320x100 mobile banner.
  • Make sure your content flows

    The layout of your site is critical and ads play a part in how it’s structured. Think of your users and put ads below the header and in viewability.
  • Lift the CPC

    Showing text and display ads can help boost revenue. If both work for you, opt in your ad units.
