How to Set up Auto ads on your AMP site

Auto ads for AMP automatically place AdSense Auto ads on your AMP pages. After you’ve added the AMP auto script and ad code, Google will automatically show ads on your AMP pages at optimal times when they’re likely to perform well and provide a good experience.

Note: Auto ads for AMP only support display ads at this time.

Before you get started

For example, let’s say you have a site and you host the AMP versions of each page under You’d add <link> tags in the <head> of each AMP and non-AMP page to indicate which content belongs together.

In the non-AMP page:
<link rel="amphtml" href="">

In the AMP page:
<link rel="canonical" href="">
