Google announced the launch of a new ad type named page-level ads. These page-level ads are designed for mobile pages and there are two specific ad formats; anchor/overlay and vignette ad formats. Google said more formats are coming soon.
These ads offer:
- Optimized ads that show when they’re likely to perform well and provide a good user experience.
- One-time set-up that only requires you to place the Page-level ad code once on each page you’d like the ads shown.
- Ability to adjust the settings in your account and to enable new ad formats without having to change the code on your site.
- Additional ads on your site that don’t count towards your AdSense per page ad limit.
Here is a video by Google on these new ads:
