Google AdSense this month announced a new beta feature that gives publishers more control over the placement and distribution of in-page Auto ads.
This new feature, called Fine-tune your ads controls, allows publishers to specify the maximum number of ads, the minimum distance between ads, and whether or not Auto ads should find more ad placements on article pages.
There are several reasons why publishers might want to opt in to fine-tune controls for in-page Auto ads:
- Increased control over ad placement: Publishers can now decide exactly how many ads you want to show on your pages and how much space you want to leave between them. This can help publishers to ensure that the ads are not too intrusive and that they don't disrupt the user experience.
- More potential ad placements: The "Find more ad placements on article pages" setting can help to increase the number of potential places where ads can appear on your article pages. This can lead to more revenue opportunities for publishers.
- Improved ad performance: By carefully controlling the placement and distribution of the ads, publishers can potentially improve their performance. This could lead to higher ad click-through rates and more revenue from the AdSense ads.
How to Set Up Fine-tune Controls
To set up fine-tune controls for in-page Auto ads, follow these steps
- Log in to your AdSense account.
- Click on the "Ads" tab.
- In the table of all your sites, click on the "Edit" button next to the site you want to manage.

It can take up to an hour for the new settings to be applied to your site.
Overall, the new fine-tune controls for in-page Auto ads give publishers more control over their ads and might help to improve their ad performance.
