Auto ads

Set up Auto ads on your site

To set up Auto ads, you need to choose your ad settings and copy and paste the AdSense code across all the pages of your site.

Before you start

Make sure your site is listed on your Ads page. If not, you'll need to add the site to your sites list before you set up Auto ads.
