About Google-managed ads

When you sign up for Google News, your edition automatically includes Google-sold ads. You can choose to remove or keep these ads.

How it works

Google no longer requires that you set aside a minimum of 30% of your inventory for Google-sold ads. You can allocate as much ad inventory as you like, if any.

How to set up Google-managed ads

  1. Open the Publisher Centre.

  2. Select your publication.

  3. Click Menu Menuand thenAds.

  4. Navigate to the 'Google-managed ads' section.

  5. Under the '% of Google-managed ads' section, enter the percentage of ads that you want your edition to be served by Google.

Tip: Increase the percentage to maximise the number of Google-managed ads displayed in your content. For example, changing the percentage to 100 means none of your ads will be served from your own inventory.
