Adsense 300X600 Ad Unit Launched: Maximize Your Ad Revenue

We all know bigger ad units perform way better than smaller ad unit and so far we have seen 336*280, 160*600 ad units to be one of the best performing ad units from Adsense. Now, Adsense ad unit adding another big ad unit (300*600) which will help you to further increase your Adsense revenue.

In a recent blog post Adsense team announced the launch of this ad unit and it’s available for all Adsense publisher now.

How to Create New Adsense 300*600 Ad unit:

To generate code for Adsense 300*600 ad unit,  login to your Adsense account and create ad code for 300*600 ad unit. Since it’s a new ad unit, you will be seeing more of Text ads than visual rich ads. Also mentioned in DPF forum, you might notice the different size of ads Ex: 160*600 ad running on 300*600 ad unit.

To create your first 300*600 ad unit, login to adsense account and click on my Ads. Click on New ad unit Select the 300X600 ad size (large Skyscrapper) and customize your Adsense color code according to your site design and color. Create a custom channel to monitor the performance of this new large skyscrapper ad unit and see how it works compare to other best performing ad units like : (336*280, 160*600) and so on.

Adsense 300*600 ad unit

I’m kind of sure that this new ad unit will outperform any other ad unit size by Adsense if places strategically and blended with your content. You can place 300*600 along with your content by increasing the size of your content box or you can also place it on sidebar of your blog. Though, you should keep in mind about Page layout algo, so make sure this ad should not be places below post title and should not obstruct user experince.

More over, if you are already using 3 ad units on your page, you should replace one with this new ad unit. My suggestion is to try replacing it with 300 or 336 ad unit size, if you are using it on sidebar.

Personally here at ShoutMeLoud, I use Affiliate marketing as main monetization scheme but to test out this new ad unit performance, I have removed the affiliate banners and replaced it with new Adsense large skyscraper unit. (temporary).

    I have implemented this ad unit on my website. But, i am getting only half of the ad (300 x 300)!! Remaining ad space is blank

    This size is really looking nice and promising for earning. But 99% of the ads are text. No image ads are available.

    300*600 not much compatible like other ads unit. It looks something odd. I can’t judge more without using it. sure i will post my experience using this ad unit. BTW thanks for sharing.

  7. BB Goyal says

    oh great. bigger advertisement allowed by google adsense. however, on your this page, your 300×600 adsense advertisement is just for downloading google chrome. i know it comes by rotation, but it also shows that google adsense has not enough inventory for this much bigger adsense unit, so they are just showing download google chrome advertisement. may be it is just the starting and in the days to come, it will have enough advertisements.

  8. Roch says

    I have just implemented it on my website, at the moment it doesn’t show up. They probably don’t have a lot of inventory yet.

        You are right. But I have noticed sometimes there is no enough links to show in that banner for one of my blog. It is not able to complete the box with links.

    This is Epic! But the ad sometimes doesn’t show full ads. It shows only half and the remaining half if blank. What could be the reason for this thing?
