This ad-unit is the biggest of the vertical banners and therefore can also be one of the top earners. But where do you put such a tall portrait style ad unit? While the main location will be obvious to a lot of people there is another location that might surprise you...

I think it goes without saying that this is the perfect side-bar ad-unit. Its large size makes it highly visible on both desktop and mobile, but its 1050px height might put a lot of people off using them. I think the truth is you really do need a side-bar to make the most out of this ad-unit and it is best avoided if you don't. But I think it could also be used somewhere else...

Because of its brand-centric format, why not consider using it in a non-intrusive location alongside your content, but not in the sidebar, but located on the left or right side of the page that the content is on! If you have a long bullet point list you could use this ad-unit along-side of it making the best out of a placement that might have otherwise been white space. It's a crazy idea but used in the right way it could be a good earner.

As always the best location for this ad type and all ads are different from blog to blog, site to site and should always be A/B tested rather than taken as gospel. If you have a question about this post or anything else Adsense related do let me know in the comments below.
