Ad formats

Setting Description
In-page ads Turn this option off if you don't want to show in-page ads.
Anchor ads Turn this option off if you don't want to show anchor ads.

Anchor ads stick to the edge of the user's screen and are easily dismissible. These ads mainly serve on mobile but can appear on desktop too.

They appear at the top of the user's screen unless we determine that this would negatively affect the user experience, in which case we show them at the bottom. When shown at the top, anchor ads only appear after the user has scrolled down far enough, so that they never cover your site's branding or navigation.

Vignette ads Turn this option off if you don't want to show vignettes.

Vignette ads are mobile full-screen ads that appear between page loads and can be skipped by users at any time.

  • Vignettes are displayed when the user leaves a page, rather than when they arrive on one, so the user doesn’t have to wait for them to load.
  • We limit the number of vignettes per user to maintain a good user experience.
Matched content Turn this option off if you don't want to show Matched content recommendations.

Matched content is a type of mobile native ad that combines ads with content recommendations from your site. By offering visitors more content that's relevant to them, you can potentially increase time spent on your site, page impressions, and ultimately revenue.

If your site is eligible, AdSense will recommend content from your site that’s most relevant to your readers. Additionally, ads can be shown in between these content recommendations.

To be eligible, your site must meet our minimum requirements for traffic volume and number of unique pages. These requirements ensure that Matched content provides a great experience for your visitors. Learn how to check if your site is eligible for Matched content.
