We all know that adsense is the best contextual ad serving network. But they have a strict program policy for every publishers. It is important to follow their guidelines for stay in adsense program as a publisher.
One common question that arrive in every new bloggers mind is
“How many adsense ad unit is allowed on a single page?“
Formally There was a limitation of 3 ad units per page for everyone and premium partners were had the permission of serving maximum of 6 ad units.
In August 2016 adsense lifted all restrictions on serving limited ad units for everyone. That means now we can serve as many as ad unit we wants to. But always keep in mind that you shouldn’t exceed your content while placing ad units. Means the ratio of content vs ads shouldn’t equal, you have to have more contents than ads.
The best practice is to understand the blogs layout and decide how many ads can do this work smoothly without making any bad effect on contents. Even if you can put as many as adsense ads on your page, I suggest you to never use over 5 ad units because there are some small posts you have in your blog. Google Adsense has declare previously:
“We may limit or disable ad serving on pages with little to no value and/or excessive advertising until changes are made.”
Adsense provides 3 type of ads, they are Adsense Content unit, Adsense Link unit and Adsense for search.
Adsense Content Unit
Adsense content units are available in following sizes:
Banners are always converting well. Placing this type of ads in above the fold can boost up your adsense earning twice. Personally I recommend the 300*250 and 160*600 ad sizes, for me they performed well then other sizes of ads.
Adsense Link Unit
Adsense link unit performed well when it placed into the perfect place in content. On the other hand, instead of inlining adsense link unit into the content, you may put it in above the fold or in your blogs navbar.
