Google Adsense link ads 10th March 2021

Link ads from Google Adsense are being retired ie. removed starting tomorrow
You can either switch to Google's "auto ads" which will scan your site and try to automatically insert ads or you can use some form of display ad.

They're also suggesting "native ads" (see Create a In-article ad unit - AdSense Help )

I've got the old link ads still running in a couple of places where they made sense, as they were a good way to monetise a space that wouldn't have been possible otherwise.

Guess it's time to pull the trigger and switch!
