YouTube to stop placing Unskippable 30 secs ads from next year

Google has announced its plans to end the unskippable 30 sec ad before a video. The search engine giant has explained in the recent statement. Instead, it is focusing on a new format which can work well with both advertisers and users as well. However, this new format will get on track in the coming year.

The reason behind Google taking this decision is a bit hazy. Advertisers find that the users were simply skipping past videos with pricey unskippable ads.

We’re committed to providing better ads experience for users online. As part of that, we’ve decided to stop supporting 30-second unskippable ads as of 2018 and focus instead on formats that work well for both users and advertisers,” Google said.

However, this doesn’t mean that all are going to be skipped away. 15-second and 20-second ads will still stick around. The new format is likely to see six-second “bumper ads” rather than the ones which can be moved past after five seconds. And again, this change will start taking place at least by the starting of 2018.

Ad-Block Plus Launches its Ad Network With Acceptable Ads

AdBlock Plus Now Sells Acceptable Ads

Adblock Plus: Premium online Advertisement blocking tool Ad-blocker is now looking to brokerage Ad sales. Eyeo GmbH, the software company behind this ad-blocking tool, is been making huge money from blocking online ads.

The German-based company announced its alliance with an Israeli ad-tech Startup ComboTag, to deal with the sale of certain advertisements targeting the Adblock Plus users.

Adblock Plus is one of the user-favorite tools for cleaning up clunky website interfaces, blocking ads, and preventing website tracking.

The company is now planning to sell “acceptable ads’ which tend to replace instructive ads and would be a great platform for advertisers and consumers.

 “We were without even being aware of it,” says ComboTag founder and CEO Guy Tytunovich. “We established guidelines for a proper advertising mix that would not annoy users.”

Adblock Plus is now making its efforts to remove the bad ads which are less instructive and less annoying. The tool is going to host a marketplace for acceptable ads where site owners and operators can pick up ads and replace in the pages where bad ads were.

Adblock Plus users will see only the “acceptable” ads but not the normal ones.

“What it does is it opens up just strictly the ad-blocking market. When we started talking to them, it was like, I don’t want to say preaching to the choir. It was more like two different preachers preaching to each other about the same thing. We can now work within the known architecture of advertising, rather than in this very, very … time-consuming old way of whitelisting” says Ben Williams, a spokesman for Adblock Plus. “So we’re talking to tier 1 [ad] agency trading desks and … we’re talking to digital publishers, and I haven’t heard a negative response yet. Everybody seems to get it.” he added.

This new acceptable initiative is a great compromise between advertisers and users which perfect sense on an idealistic level.

Many sites wouldn’t be able to operate a website without adverts, so this change allows web-site operators to advertise while enhancing the user experience. This doesn’t hint the idea of ad-blocking service to sell little backward ads.

Google will Crack Down on Mobile Sites with Pop-Up Ads from January 2017

Tech giant company Google has announced that they will initiate to crack down on ‘intrusive interstitials’. Google will be initiate this from the month of January 2017. The Ads which appear during browsing the web on mobile devices are problematic and cause inconvenience to the users.

Facebook Forces Advertising on Users of the Ad-blocking Software

Social network giant Facebook joined hands with advertising industry to fight against ad-blockers. The company is forcing ads on all its desktop users in spite of their ad-blockers. Facebook found a tool to block the ad blockers saying relevant ads can be useful. But the company provided an option to choose the types of ads user to see.

Ad blockers resist ads by not displaying page images and other elements which originated from a known ad server. Facebook found another way around and the website starts showing ads on the desktop site even if the ad blocker were installed. The mobile app of the Facebook remained same, which brings the bulk of advertising revenue to the company. It is expected that the new features are to be rolled out soon while some users may see it earlier, some may see sooner.

These technologies result in the company’s bad financial results and may harm much more if this technology continues to grow. “Facebook is ad-supported. Ads are a part of the Facebook experience; they’re not a tack on,” said Andrew Bosworth, vice president of Facebook’s ads and business platform. “This isn’t motivated by inventory; it’s not an opportunity for Facebook from that perspective, we’re doing it more for the principle of the thing. We want to help lead the discussion on this.” He added.

It is observed 84% of the ad revenue of Facebook came from mobile. Still, the company claims loss of income as a result of ad blockers.
