Whether it’s appropriate to put Adsense matched content ad in a blog

This may be inappropriate for a blog in any way, I do not think, rather you will benefit from its use as it will not only increase your earning but it will also help in increasing the traffic of your blog.

Because not only ads but also your blog posts are displayed in it. And multiple ads are also displayed in it.

And if you are an Adsense publisher, I will also suggest that you must try it once, your earning and traffic will be much better than earlier. Anyway, Adsense matched content ad is more valuable than other Adsense ads because the rest of the ads can be used by all Adsense publishers.

But Ads watched ad is not available for all publishers mostly not available for those who have a new account or have less traffic on their blog.

So the use of this ad is perfectly justified and will enhance your earning as well as traffic.
