  • Fixed Size Ads like:

  • 300 x 250 – Rectangle 
  • 728 x 90 – leaderboard or floor ad
  • 160 x 600 – Wide Skyscraper

Other Ad Formats supported by AdSense are Sticky and Native Ads. Floor ads come as sticky ads as they are visible throughout the page.

As for the Native Ads, they are of namely three different types by AdsSense, that are, In-article, In-feed, and Multiplex Native Ads.

The recommended ad sizes blend well with the content and cover good space on the page. A page showing multiple ads gets a high chance of clicks on the multiple ads.
