I borrowed these tips from MediaVine because their ad insertion system works similarly to Auto Ads where they play to Googleís 30% ads, 70% content limit.

1) Bigger font sizes. 20px minimum.

2) Shorten paragraphs. Paragraphs should be no more than 2-3 sentences.

3) Add relevant images. The more the better. Separate them from paragraphs with p tags.

4) donít add your own Adsense units except maybe one link unit because Auto Ads works around them. Exception is if you have a super high CTR unit you donít want to lose.

5) Lengthen your short articles if you can.

Youíll see more ads yet also have a better user experience using all of these tips.

This is debatable and conflicting. Catering to ad placement is never about user experience. Zero ads would make the best user experience.

I don't agree with wrapping images in <p> tags. I'd rather follow proper schema than accommodate AI and ad placement.

The explanation is that , auto ads is inserting ads between paragraphs, that's the generic idea. So, by using the <p> tag, you are influencing (helping) the auto ads to detect where it can insert ads. Putting image inside <p> tag, is a known trick to have ads showing under the image , which we all know how it can be easily misleading, and "in theory" against Adsense's rules :)
