Google AdSense provides an easy-to-use interface to create/modify ad units. Google AdSense allows changing ad type of an existing ad. Currently, there are three ad types that exist. One is “Text ads only”, another one is “Display ads only” and the final one is “Text & display ads”.
- “Text ads only” will display the textual ads with hyperlinks.
- “Display ads only” will display only graphic ads; like images and videos.
- “Text & display ads” will allow displaying text ads and graphic ads.
