Google AdSense is undoubtedly the most powerful online earning service provider.

Google Ads with yellow background

To get high CTR, it is recommended to make the Ad background transparent encouraging the reader to positively click the interest based Ads. This post I will tell you a simple but effective method to make your Google Ad Background match with the site design.

Method 1. Using a WordPress Plugin/Google Ads Transparent

You can make the Ad border transparent without any code using a simple WordPress Plugin known as Advanced Ads.

Method 2. Changing the CSS Code/Change Ads Background

Google places a “ins” tag around its Ads and many WordPress themes use a standard light yellow background color for “ins” tags.

To fix this you can do any of the following; Go to WordPress Dashboard → Appearance → CSS Editor/Editor.

To simplify the things; you just go to style.css and do a page search using Ctrl+F for #fff9c0 or #ff9 for yellow color (vary with WordPress Theme).

Here change the color code according to your website’s background such as #ffffff for white, #000000 for black, or RBG(25,25,25,0) for transparent etc.

Or you can add the following code according to your need in the custom stylesheet;

For Transparent Background

ins.adsbygoogle { 
background: transparent !important; 

For White Background

.adsbygoogle {
background: #FFFFFF;

With the method above you can remove the yellow AdSense Ad background and change it to your desired color to increase the CTR rate and earnings.
