Google Now Selecting Your AdSense Fonts

Dec 30, 2011 • 8:24 am | comments (5) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google AdSense

Google AdSenseGoogle announced that they may now auto-pick the font size and face depending on the viewer's screen.

Google said they will "optimize your ad units for your unique site and users." That means, if you selected to use the "default" font option, Google will select the "best-performing option" automatically for you. The "best-performing option" may differ based on the type of user visiting your site, so to determine that, Google looks at operating system and browser and the ad unit itself (language, size, number of ads, etc).

Google said this only will work if you have your fonts set to “AdSense default font family” and “AdSense default font size” selected.

Back in July, we reported users noticing Google testing font size changes with their ads - I guess it was a test for this.

IF it works correctly this can be a great feature. But everyone who works with Google "auto-optimizing-features" knows better... ;-)

I'm in love with arial font 10 for body texts and 12 point for headings. It would be great to get the same in the AdSense ads.

Yeah, about that - bombed on my site. Reverted to my trusty Verdana/Medium. Happy New year Google...will try again later.

In any way, it benefits both Google and the webmaster as long as the ad looks natural with the page theme.
