Nuxt Load Google Adsense Auto Ads

Important Notes

  • You can use Auto ads, but you must disable In-page ads. Why? In-page ads will cause JavaScript exception, as I believe ads injection by google intefere with the JavaScript hydration of Nuxt/Vue.js.
    • Ocassionally In-page ads will load fine, but it only loads on initial page request and will not load on further NuxtLink / vue-router navigation. Alternatively you could disable use of NuxtLink / RouterLink navigation and use <a> instead.
  • Vignette ads will still work, but it will intefere with NuxtLink /router navigation when Vignette ads popup, and trigger a new page request rather than a vue-router navigation.
  • Anchor ads will work fine.


I create a component to load google ads manually.

  • I have to position the ads manually, as I can't use In-page ads.
  • Auto ads is only enabled for the page if I use this component, else Auto ads won't load (to prevent loading Adsense on page with no content).
  • Ads will load with NuxtLink / vue-router navigation, or dynamic loading of more content of an existing page.

Create components/GoogleAd.vue.

  • Create Display ads ad unit in Adsense, which is shown when type=display.
  • You can create other ad unit type as well. I create type=link which is In-feed ads.
