How Many Google Adsense Units Are Allowed Per Page?

If you’re using Google Adsense on your website, then you must be wondering how many adsense units are allowed per page?
Yes, Google clearly states the maximum number of ad units that are allowed per page and if you use more units than that, then Google can ban your account anytime on the basis of violating their TOS.
Google has given specific adsense guidelines which clearly states not to use more units than the maximum number of adsense units allowed per page.

Google Adsense

Google Adsense For Content – AdSense publishers are allowed to place up to three AdSense for content units on one webpage. This includes a maximum of one 300×600 ad unit per page. Rest of the adsense unit sizes can be placed more than one time but not more than 3 times.

Link Units – You’re also allowed to place a maximum of three link units per webpage.

Adsense for search – Only two search forms are allowed per page.

Maximum Google Adsense Units Per Page- Thus in total, you may place up to three link units on a page, in addition to the three standard ad units, and two search boxes.
