Quite easy, but the Adsense-blocks are quite close to other content. I think google doesnt like this and can close your account for this, or?

How can I get some space (some cm) in between? :unsure:
This is very much correct and Google has already warned me for this after upgrading to XF2. They mailed me the below:

---
Publishers are not permitted to encourage users to click on Google ads in any way. This includes any implementation that may cause accidental clicks, such as:

  • Placing ads near clickable content such as flash games, site links, or any navigation bars
  • Implementing the ads in a way that they might be mistaken for other site content
  • Ad implementation which can be overlapped with drop-down or expandable content
---

XF should consider moving Post Below message content ad type position to post container area (Probably name it something like Post Below message content container) like Ads Manager 2 add-on does. So in future rest of the XF2 forum owners won't face problems like we faced.

Thanks

Where I can move this content container? :unsure:

Because they are super close to other content. I am using in the CP under "advertising" the Container content: Above and Below for two google Adsense banners, but I am bit scared they maybe too close...

Which template-code I have to change? :unsure:

Maybe XenForo-Creaters should give their "advertising-containers" more space....

This is implemented for the next release. I've created a new advertising position rather than changing the existing ones.

Ads in that position (if styled appropriately) will look like this:

This is the advertising HTML used in that position:
HTML:
<div style="display: flex;
    justify-content: center;
    margin: 10px 0;">
    <img src="https://dummyimage.com/leaderboard" />
</div>
