Adsense Auto Ads with Regular Ads

After seeing Adsense Auto Ads beta feature pop up on my account, I was excited to jump right in. I did, however, worry adsense would be too conservative in placing ads or just not place the right type of ads for my site. In an effort to not have a couple day drop of a good chunk of revenue, I simply placed the auto-ad code in along with the existing ads on my site.

I will be monitoring the performance closely and may remove the hard-coded ads to see if performance keeps up.

Set up Auto ads on your site

Copy and paste this code in between the <head> tags of your site. It’s the same code for all your pages. You don’t need to change it even if you change your global preferences. See our code implementation guide for more details.
For those of you looking to get started with auto-ads, you may be able to place the following code onto your site (with your own publisher-id).
<script async src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script>
<script>
 (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({
 google_ad_client: "ca-pub-0545639743190253",
 enable_page_level_ads: true
 });
</script>

The auto-ads management page can be found at:

https://www.google.com/adsense/new/u/0/pub-0545639743190253/myads/auto-ads

but since the program is still in beta, many users don’t have access yet.

UPDATE:

Google also has the Auto Ads for AMP pages, in their documentation for the AMP implementation,  things are set out more clearly:

 

Google Custom Search Results Not Loading [results on own domain]

A big problem with Google’s Custom Search engine is the code is not formatted for users on https websites:


You can see the two urls http://www.google.com and http://www.google.com/coop/cse/brand?form=cse-search-box&lang=en are both insecure. This is even after providing Google with the secure version of the site where the ad-code would be displayed. When implementing the code and the results page, most users see a blank page or a search box missing the google custom search logo.

The simple fix for this issue is to change the http in the urls to https. This will stop any mixed content errors and users over your http and https site alike will have no trouble loading the searchbox or search results.

Hope this helps anyone! Ask any questions in the comments!
