How to Set up Ad Tags + Custom HTML Elements

If you want to implement ads on a page, you can do so by clicking on the + ADD ELEMENT button in our Layout & Design tool:


This will open up a list of all of the elements you can use. This is where you can find Ad Tag:

Once placed in your layout, it will let you paste in the ad tags and separate them into code blocks for mobile, tablet, and desktop:

Here is the code for Ad Tags:

    <!-- /8118653087/SmartHome_Billboard --><div id='div-gpt-ad-1544633047645-0'><script>googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1544633047645-0'); });</script></div>

Setting up Ads Using a Custom HTML Element

If you need a custom implementation that includes styling of ads or specific <div> elements, then choose Custom HTML instead of Ad Tag in the + ADD ELEMENT menu:

You can use custom HTML for many purposes, and the use case we'd like to cover here is inserting custom ads to increase your site's revenue.

You can add a Custom HTML element inside any column you have in your layout. Here's an example of a sticky ad module inserted in a Post Page:

You can also name your Custom HTML elements to easily identify them. In the example above, we named our example "left rail sticky assign."

Here is the Custom HTML code:

    <!-- /8118653087/Homepage_Leaderboard --><div id='div-gpt-ad-1544631345264-0' style="text-align : center"><script>googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1544631345264-0'); });</script></div>

You can create different ad placements with custom HTML for mobile, tablet, or desktop by using the Conditional Content element:

Once the Conditional Content element is placed, you can place new elements inside of it, such as custom HTML or header code.

In the drop-down menu, you'll be able to choose if you want the conditional content to be placed for mobile, tablet, or desktop:

If you choose "Is Tablet" and you're in desktop view, or "Is Mobile" and you're in tablet view, and so on, don't worry — the element hasn't disappeared. It's only visible in the viewport when it's called to be displayed.

If you have any questions about Ad Tags or the Ad Dashboard, please contact your account manager.

An Important Note on Site Quality From Google’s Search Expert

An Important Note on Site Quality From Google’s Search Expert

Do you ever wonder if a few typos can impact your site’s search performance? According to Google’s Search Advocate John Mueller, it takes more than just a few grammatical missteps for Google’s crawler to determine your site’s quality.

During a New Year’s Eve Office Hours hangout, Mueller said that if certain portions of a website are deemed low quality, it can negatively impact the site’s search ranking overall. A good example of this is a site that has different language versions within the same domain. If the site has a French-language version that is made up of quality content, but the English translation isn’t up to the same standard, the ranking of the French version of the site could be negatively impacted.

how to make images seo friendly

Keep Search a Priority With SEO-Friendly Image Filenames

There are a lot of factors that go into a successful search engine optimization (SEO) strategy, including performance, structured data, and, of course, choosing the right keyword(s). Our proprietary search technology helps content creators prep every article for success on search. This all-encompassing approach includes the use of SEO-friendly image filenames.

On RebelMouse, if you assign an alt tag to an image in Entry Editor, that alt tag will also become the image's file name. Briefly, alt tags describe images for search engines, and also allow people using screen readers to know what the image is without actually being able to see it. Adding your desired search phase to every alt text field, and in turn every image file name, will reinforce its relevance to Google's crawler, bringing you one step closer to the top of search returns.
