What is Google Auto Ads?
On February 21, 2018, Google has officially announced the Auto ads feature to its publishers. Auto Ads is basically are based on Artificial Intelligence. It simply crawls your web pages and posts and shows ads based on your content and also on the most optimum location. It will give the best optimization for your ads which yields higher RPM and CTR.

Google Auto ads help you to monetize your whole website with just a single code. There is no need to create individual ad units for a different location.
How Google Auto Ads Works?
Monetizing your website has never been so easy. Google Auto Ads works seamlessly with your website. Let’s check out how it works.

Note:- It’s highly recommended that you choose the option “Automatically get new formats” This will help you to enroll yourself in new ad formats whenever Google launches them.

Google Auto ads will now start working on your website and start analyzing your pages, It will find the potential ad placements, and show new ads when they’re likely to perform well, and provide a good user experience. The ads will start showing within 10 to 20 minutes.
If you already have ad units running on your website then there is no need to worry. Google will count the placement and bypass them and look for new placement opportunities. However, I recommend you remove any existing ad units from your website to work it better for you.
Benefits of using Google Auto Ads.
Here are some of the benefits of using Google Auto Ads:
- Optimization: Using artificial intelligence, Auto ads show ads only when they are likely to perform well and provide a good user experience.

- Easy to use: With Google Auto ads, you only need to place a single ad code on your pages once. Whenever you are ready to use new ad features and ad formats, you may simply turn them on and off with just a click. There is no need to change the code again.
- Save your time:- Google auto ads also save your time. You don’t have to bother yourself with placement strategy. Google will take care of it. All you need is to provide great and valuable content for your site and drive traffic to your website.
Google Auto ads have some mixed-up reviews. Some users find it very useful and some are not. According to my personal experience, Site content and traffic is big factor to determine how Auto ads work for you. If you have low traffic website then the revenue is going to be quite low and you can’t make the most out of it.
Since the Auto ads work on artificial intelligence so, they will perform well with high-traffic websites. However, it is my personal opinion and I am not insisting everyone to not use it. Everything depends on your efforts and hard work.
