AdSenses’ Native ads, a new family of ads best suited for sites with an editorial feed or a listing feed has now received the support of maching learning. Bringing the machine learning to In-feed ads will help publishers save time in helping them decide about what fonts, colors and styles works best to their sites.
How is how it works:
- Create a new Native In-Feed ad and select “Let Google suggest a style.”
- Enter the URL of a page with a feed you’d like to monetize. AdSense will scan your page to find the best placement.
- Select which feed element you’d like your In-feed ad to match.
- Your ad is automatically created – simply place the piece of code into your feed, and you’re done!
Additionally, you can also create your ads manually.
