New Page Level Ads – Adsense

These new ads are now available in the Adsense platform: They can be added to your adsense site and will only pop on mobile when Google thinks it’s a good time to launch an overlay. I’m not sure how they calculate this but it is described as displaying at “optimal times”. Most importantly you can add these without them counting towards your three ads per page limit. “Designed by Google...
