Google Adsense is one such product that has constantly evolved in terms of bringing updates in the direction of better user experience. Google’s official blog for Adsense related information, Inside Adsense; posted an update on 13th January 2017 about Ad Balance.
Ad balance is a feature introduced to give more controls to publishers to provide better ads experience to site visitors. If you frequently visit the new interface of your Adsense account, you might have observed a new subtab named Ad balance under My ads.
- If you have already enabled the Show fewer ads lab, you would be automatically moved to Ad balance feature
- When ads are removed, the ad unit will show as blank
Click on My Ads under the menu of your new Adsense interface. Then click on Ad balance subtab. You would see a slider for Ad fill rate. This determines how often the ad space on your site is filled with ads.
