Most bloggers start a WordPress blog to earn money online. Google Adsense is one of the best ways to help WordPress owners make some money. If you have a decent amount of web traffic, you can easily earn hundreds of dollars (if not thousands).
Google recently launched Auto Ads which allows Google to automatically display the ads throughout the WordPress page. Instead of manually placing the code on your WordPress site, Google does it for you and it is time-saving for most. For beginners, it is easy to use too.
But there is a downside to this feature. You have no control over the ads placement and the ads may display on your homepage.
This is how our founder's website looks like (after disabling auto ads on the WordPress homepage).
Carry on reading below to learn how you can disable Auto Ads on WordPress homepage.
Yes, you are right. It only takes 4 steps to disable Google auto ads on the WordPress homepage. Follow these steps and you should be ready in no time.
The first step is to log in to your Google Adsense account. If you don't have one, you can create it for free here. Once you have login, head over to Ads » Overview.
Next, search for your site name by entering the (filter) field.
Once you found the designated site name, click on the edit button on the right.
For this demo, we are using ReginaldChan.net and you can see that the auto ads feature is turned on and it has 1one page exclusion.
This is the last part for you to disable auto ads on WordPress homepage. As you are adjusting Google Adsense directly, it is important to make sure you recheck on the settings to ensure that everything is done right.
On the bottom right of the page, head over to Page exclusion » Manage.
Click on Add exclusion and type in the specific page or categories you want to disable Google auto ads.
Once that is done, you can choose to exclude ads on a single page (specific URL string) or all pages under this section.
Since you are disabling Google auto ads for WordPress homepage, select This page only and press Add. Lastly, click on Apply to site to ensure that the setting is saved properly.
It takes around 15 minutes to 2 hours to have the ads properly served (and excluded).
By now, you should be able to disable auto ads on WordPress homepage successfully. This step is rather easy and we recommend you to recheck all the settings to ensure that you are not affecting your Google Adsense earnings due to the wrong setting.
