GOOGLE WILL DOWNGRADE MOBILE WEBSITES THAT USE INTRUSIVE ADS
If you’re one of those who loathe being annoyed by pop-up ads while browsing web, or ads that cannot be skipped before a video, we have good news! Google will make sure you are subjected to less such advertising materials as it introduces new algorithms that will downgrade mobile websites using full-page and pop-up ads.
This plan was announced back in August 2016, and Google has now confirmed that the new algorithm is live since 10 January this year.
Google will thus first and foremost penalize those websites where an ad appears immediately after the user accesses it, or if it pops up when the user starts scrolling. It will also punish those websites that force you to open an ad before you can continue reading the content you want.
