Lets go through all the questions which may come in to your mind about Page level ads.

What are Page Level ads?

Page level ads are the latest ad formats from Adsense which target the mobile content of your site and display the ads to users when they are most likely to perform well and give a better user experience.

How many types of page level ads are there?

Currently Adsense launched two types of Page level ads ( With more coming in future )

  1. Anchor/Overlay ads
  2. Vignette Ads

1) Anchor/Overlay ads:

These type of page level ads stick to the users screen and can be dismissed by the user easily, and are shown on high end mobile devices. If the user isn’t impressed with the ads, he is just a tap away from minimizing the ads. 🙂

2) Vignette Ads

These are the full screen ads which appears between page loads of your site, similar to Anchor ads these also can be dismissed by the user easily and the tricky part here is the site page load in the background to the ads, so that if the user decides to dismiss the ad, the next page will be ready for him to view. 🙂

Will it affect the ‘Max allowed ads on a page’ ?

Nope, both of these ad types doesn’t count towards ‘ads per page’ limit. These ads are in addition to your existing ads.

    1. Hi Payel,

      You need an approved AdSense account to go for Page Level Ads, post which you have to activate them on your website manually.
      Once you have activated Page Level ads, Google will take care of rest for you. 🙂

  1. Very useful article. I’ll try to share my experience. After 2 days from enabling page level ads for my website my revenues increased by aprox. 5%. However, I consider the CPC of page level ads very low (lower than some of my traditional adsense units).

Excited to hear from you, comment below !
