Page-Level Ads – How to Use Them & Find the Performance Report

Pagel-Level ads are the two latest AdSense formats officially introduced by Google in April 2016 after beta testing them since 2013.

What are Page-Level ads exactly?

Page-Level ads is the heading for two different ad formats

  • Anchor/overlay ads
  • Vignette ads

Both ad formats are ads which are shown only on high-end smartphone mobile devices and from our experience only on websites with short loading times. These ad formats also do not count the 3 ads per page limit

Update: Google AdSense removed the 3 ads per page limit recentely

The anchor/overlay ad is a small bar which sticks to the edge of the user’s screen and is easily dismissable by the user without the need to click on the ad itself.

The vignette ad is a full screen mobile ad that appears between page loads on your site. It also can be easily dismissed by your users without clicking on the ad itself.
