General questions about display ads

I want to start out by being sure I am in the correct place.


I am wanting image display ads for my business to only show up on websites which participate in the Adsense program. These would be leaderboards and rectangle ads which link to a page on our site.


I'm not interested in text-based ads or ads which only show up on Google searches.


Am I at the right place? Thanks.

Text ads can still show in spots where image ads are normally located so I would engurage you to give text ads a try as well on display inside a different adgroup.

Depending on your market and clients you are going after you may want to bid adjust on mobile starting off as well as exclude in-app traffic using the campaign exclusion placement option of

The above advice really varies and it depends on many factors.
