How can I reduce Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS) from ads?

If you're looking to improve your CLS score, we can apply a styling update to your ad spaces that will reduce the effect of your ads on CLS.

Because your ads are dynamic and the highest-paying ad will always serve on your site, this may cause some page shift, as your ad spaces adjust based on the size of the ad that is served.

One option to reduce CLS from ads is to set a minimum height to your ad spaces, to avoid any potential page shift when an ad serves. If you’d like to apply that update to your site, you can do so via the Ad Preferences page in your dashboard. Look for the setting under User Experience and turn on the toggle.
