Sometimes it just isn’t practical to have Adsense ads on a page or post. It just doesn’t make sense to have ads on your Privacy Pages, or your About Me page. This post will explain the method for how to block or exclude Google Adsense Ads from a Page or Post.
Block or Exclude Google Adsense Ads
Blocking or excluding Adsense ads directly from Google Adsense gives you specific control over pages or posts. You will need to add specific pages and/or URL’s to the EXCLUDE page.
This means that for each NEW funnel or TripWire page, you will have to go back in Google Adsense and add that particular URL.
Step 1: Sign in to your AdSense account.
Sign in to your adsense account at https://adsense.google.com
Step 2: Click Ads -> Overview
On the Overview page, click the edit icon as shown below.
Step 3: Manage Page Exclusions
On the right, toward the bottom, click “Manage Page Exclusions”.
Step 4: Add Exclusions
On the Manage Page Exclusions, click “Add Exclusion”
Step 5: Add URL
Add the URL of the page or post to exclude.
Step 6: Select This Page Only
You have an option to select “This Page Only” or “All Pages under this Section”. This applies to pages that have subsections. In this instance, you want to choose “This Page Only”.
Step 7: Click Add
You will repeat Steps 5 through 7 for any and all pages or posts that you want to exclude.
Changing Ad Placements
You can also delete ads from certain places on your page or posts. View the page on the Overview page and then click the delete button for any placements you don’t want. Remember, the fewer ads, the less money, however.
Certain pages should automatically be excluded from ads:
A few recommendations for excluding ads are a minimum of the following:
* About Me
* Lead Pages
Using other ad programs
Using other ad programs such as Shareasale, Amazon Associates, CJ Associates, or Media.net follow the same basic principle. Please note: I do not recommend having all of these ads on the same pages or posts. That does not mean you cannot reference them within the blog post, just don’t automatically have all the ads display. Too many ads on a page is a real turn-off for readers.
If you would like to sign up for these programs, or get further information, click the links below:
These are considered affiliate ads. They are fairly specific to the company represented. You choose which ads you want to show and place the ad code manually.
Share-a-Sale – a conglomeration of companies. Choose companies that apply to your niche for the best results.
CJ Associates – another conglomeration of companies. Companies are different than share-a-sale. Some niches not found in this one.
These are ad services, similar to Google Adsense.
Media.net – Text-based ads. These are simply links with no pictures. Payout is a little better than Adsense but not much.
Monumetric – This next-level ad marketing. Monumetric takes several months to be accepted. Requires 25,000 or above pageviews. Usually the stepping stone to Mediavine. Pays significantly more than the above and Google Adsense.
Mediavine – The ultimate in ad revenue. Requires 25,000 and above USERS or SESSIONS.
