Recently I switched on Google Auto Ads. This way Google will help you by analyzing your web page, and put the ads automatically in the best position. Unfortunately, this caused some annoying effect which I just found out today. My most popular page, contains list of instructions on how to configure audio balance in Windows 10. The list is in an ordered list (<ol />).

So what currently happening is Google inserted an ad in-between the instructions (<li />). This will messed up the order no. If you have something like “Please refer to step N”, that statement is now misleading.

I’ve logged in into my adsense account, there is no configurable options for Auto Ads apart from enable/disable. So Google, can we have a configuration to disallow Auto Ads for ordered list?
