One of the ways to improve the performance of Adsense ads is by implementing Lazy Loading for Adsense ads.

We have heard about lazy loading or lazy loading of images, videos, and Iframes. Lazy loading means that images, videos, and iframes will start to load once the user is about to see them, something that generally improves the performance of your site in the different speed tests.

I use a lightweight WordPress theme like GeneratePress, my site is hosted in a powerful hosting like Bluehost and I use between 8 to 12 plugins that have a minimal impact on the speed of my sites so I am sure my site loads quite fast.

A site with lightweight plugins, a simple theme, and good hosting will give you results with few optimizations made.

But Adsense ads can Slow down any website.

So in this article, we will learn how to lazy load Adsense ads to improve Core Web Vitals score.

Frustration with Adsense Ads

Then you start creating content to attract visitors on social media as well as through search engines.

Because of that, if people know very little about optimization, they are given the task of optimizing images, cleaning the database, and applying as many optimization measures as they can with few results.

No matter what you do, the results in any speed test are a simple shame if you monetize your site with Adsense as you cannot optimize external requests.
