Follow the steps provided by Google AdSense in order to generate an ad unit code for each unit that you want displayed on your site.

  6. - Click the HTML icon at the bottom of the page .

  7. - Click the Add HTML or URL icon .

Use a Lightbox pop-up to display your ad

To do this, add a lightbox pop-up to display your ad.

  1. First, click on the + sign in the upper left corner of your Wix editor and choose "Lightbox."

  2. This will open up an assistant that walks you through adding a lightbox.

  3. Next, set the lightbox trigger by clicking on the "Trigger" button in the upper right corner of the page. Choose whether or not to display your lightbox when someone clicks on an image or when they scroll down past a certain point on your page.

  4. You'll also be able to customize how your lightbox looks and closes by clicking on the "Design" and "Close" tabs at the top of the page. You can customize things like background color or text color as well as choose whether or not your visitor has to click anywhere on your page before they are taken into your lightbox.
