And most new bloggers always want to experience how to make money from their blogs by joining the Google AdSense advertising program. Indeed there are many success stories from many bloggers who are able to make a lot of money from adsense which makes many people want to become bloggers, but to be accepted as an adsense publisher is also not easy. Many things need to be considered so that your blog can be accepted when register Google AdSense, but it also takes luck too.
Apart from being difficult for Google AdSense to accept, the rules or policies for following this program are also very strict. If Google AdSense finds your website violates their TOS, then they will permanently deactivate or ban your AdSense account.
So with this it will be very important for you to follow the quality and AdSense program guidelines in order to avoid your AdSense account from being banned.
However, in this article I will not discuss how you can be accepted on Google Adsense, but rather provide an explanation of how many Google AdSense Ad Units are allowed on a website or blog page.
How many AdSense ad units are allowed to be installed?
Why does this need to be discussed? because indeed this question has been very often questioned and debated by new bloggers who have also recently been accepted by Google AdSense. The questions are as follows:
“What is the maximum number of AdSense units I can put on a blog page?”
Google AdSense offers a variety of ad types and the frequently used categories are in the following formats:
- Display Ads
- In-feed Ads
- In-Article Ads
- Matched Content
- Link Ads
Actually, previously AdSense also offered the AdSense Video Unit, but this video unit has now been retired by Google because it wasn’t that popular.
Here is the Maximum Number of AdSense Ad Units that are allowed to be installed on a web page:
AdSense Content Unit
Previously, AdSense had a maximum limit of 3 ad units (while “premium partner” accounts could use ad services for up to 6 ad units). And in August 2016 yesterday, AdSense increased the limit for ad units for each site which made us more flexible. You can now place unlimited number (unlimited) from AdSense ads on your webpage or blog.
However, the advertisements and other promotional materials that you post must not exceed your content which means that you also need to maintain the quality of your site.
Here are some of the available AdSense Display Ads sizes.
- 728 * 90
- 468 * 60
- 234 * 60
- 125 * 125
- 120 * 600
- 160 * 600
- 180 * 150
- 120 * 240
- 200 * 200
- 250 * 250
- 300 * 250
- 336 * 280
- Automatic Size (Responsive)
And AdSense ads have several views like the following:
- Horizontal Banner
- Vertical Banner
- Custom Size
- Link ads
From the ad sizes above, the most recommended ones are 336 * 280 and 720 * 90. You can try to use both sizes for your blog.
Adsense Link unit
AdSense Link Units do very well when paired with your website theme or template and placed above the fold.
Several bloggers tested it by placing one AdSense Link Units on the Navbar and it turned out to be one of the best performing ad units. And for AdSense Link Ads, you can also post on your blog pages indefinitely as long as this link ad does not exceed your content.
You can find various sizes for AdSense Link Units below:
- Responsive Links
- 785 * 15
- 468 * 15
- 200 * 90
- 180 * 90

AdSense For Search
For large sites using Google AdSense for Search ad type will generate very good value. For this type of advertising is very easy and you can combine it with your blog design.
To install Adsense for Search is quite easy, you will see the Search menu on the left on the My ads page. You just need to type in your name, keyword and choose a display from the search box. After that Save and Get Code to get the code. Copy the code and paste it into a text widget and drop it into the sidebar of your Wordrpess site.
Page Level Ads
Page level Ads are a new type of AdSense ad unit for mobile, this type of ad is only displayed when your website or blog is accessed via a smartphone and this ad is in the form of a pop up and fixed at the bottom of the smartphone screen.
To use this ad you only need to activate the button from number 0 to number one and then copy the code and place the code under the tag or above <body> from your blog. There are only 2 types of formats for this ad, namely (Anchor / Overlay Ads and Vignetter ads).
As I mentioned earlier, Google has removed the limit on the number of units in AdSense advertising. As long as your ad does not exceed your content or your ad dominates more than your content. There is no upper limit to the number of ads on a page.
It is very important for you to know that while thinking about how many ad units you will install, you also have to think about the quality of your blog posts and the number of your articles. If you decide to place more than 5-6 AdSense ad units, and you place them all over your site using plugins, you may be considered ad spamming your posts.
AdSense has explicitly stated that they can limit or disable ad serving on pages with little or no value and / or excessive advertising until changes are made.
So I suggest that you simply use or post less than 5 ads per page.
I usually only advertise no more than 3 units. But you also have to be good at identifying your own boundaries according to the layout or design of your blog. Try to keep the ads that you put in the right position and do not interfere with your writing, because besides being considered spamming, this will also make your visitors feel annoyed and lazy when reading your articles.
Some of the things I have learned from my own experience:
- Sometimes 2 ad units perform better than 3 ad units.
- Placing ads on the sidebar and above, in or at the bottom of the article results in higher click rates.
- The combination of image + text ads performs better.
There are many options available for ad placement, but I highly recommend using the minimum number of ad units or utilizing ads only at the top, bottom or in the sidebar.
The freedom in the number of AdSense advertisements allowed by google doesn’t mean you have to install as many as possible for the purpose of making more money. You must keep a reasonable amount of it and also care about your visitors to your site.
Above is a complete explanation of how many ads are allowed to be placed on a web page or blog, Hopefully this article can give you enlightenment and good luck making money from your blog by following the Adsense program. Good luck 🙂
