If you are a Mediavine Ad Management customer, you know that site speed is always a priority for us! Because of that we always recommend using our Optimize for Pagespeed settings on desktop and mobile.

You'll notice a dashboard warning with Optimize for Desktop Pagespeed, and that is simply because when you defer ads from the first screenview on desktop, if that first ad is targeted too high, you may lose impressions.

To keep things fast AND retain all of your ad impressions, sometimes you need to move that first sidebar ad down a little.

With Trellis, you can easily move where your top sidebar ad displays, by using the Mediavine Sidebar Ad Hint widget.

To add this widget, head to Wordpress > Appearance > Widgets and add the Mediavine Sidebar Ad Hint widget to the sidebar:

Be sure to drag the Mediavine Sidebar Ad Hint widget below the last widget that appears in the first screenview.

Once you've added the widget, you're all set! Just view your site in an incognito window to make sure your top sidebar ad is displaying.
