Google AdSense incredible Update: During yesterday, Google AdSense introduced Native ads, a suite of ad formats designed to match the look and feel of your site, providing a great user experience for our website visitors.
We can say that this is a good update from the Google AdSense team. There are few interesting points in this update that everyone must know and implement in their website.
Google AdSense introduced Native Ads
In this update, Native Ads comes in with three categories. They are as follows:
- Matched content
These three ad categories can be used all at one or we can use them individually.
Reasons to introduce these Native Ads
These Ad categories are designed for these reasons.
- A Great User Experience
These Ad categories fit naturally on your site and they use high-quality advertiser elements such as high-resolution clear images, long titles and descriptions to attract your website visitors with great attractive experience.
A Great Look and Feel across different Screen Sizes
These native ads are built to look great on any devices such as Mobile, Desktop and Tablet. These ads are very well optimised than any other ads.
- Ease of use
Native ads are very easy to use. Ease-to-use editing tools will help us to make the ads look great on our website or blog.
1. In-Feed Ad category
Native In-feed opens up new revenue opportunity in your feeds. These ads are available to all publishers. In-feed ads slot are placed neatly inside your feeds. These ads are highly customisable to match the look and feel of your feed content and offer new places to display ads.
2. In-Article Ad category
Native In-article offers a better advertising experience. Native In-article ads are also available to all AdSense publishers. In-article ads are optimised by Google to help you to put great-looking ads between the paragraphs of your pages or articles. In-article ads use high-quality advertising elements and offer a great reading experience to your visitors.
Benefits of In-Article Ads:

3. Matched content
Matched Content* drives more users to your content. Matched content ads are available to the Google AdSense publishers that meet the eligibility criteria. Matched content is a content recommendation tool that helps you to promote your content to visitors and potentially increases the revenue, page views, and time spent on your website or blog. AdSense publishers who are eligible for “Allow Ads” feature can also show relevant ads within their matched content units. This leads to the creation of can additional revenue opportunity in this placement.
Website Places where Native Ads should be used

- In-feed: Use In-feed ads inside your feed. For example, a list of article or the products.
- In-article: Use In-article ads between the paragraphs of your pages or articles.

When deciding your native ad strategy, keep the content best practices in mind.
