In this post, we will see how to remove Google Auto Ads from undesired locations.

Google Auto ads offer a simple and innovative way for you to monetize. With Google Auto ads, you place one piece of code, and Google ads will appear across your site. Google Auto ads scans your site and automatically place ads where they’re likely to perform well and potentially generate more revenue.
