Use the viewability best practices list below to learn about which areas you should address for better viewability results.

Page length

Short form content yields higher viewability, therefore set pages to have only one fold.

Ad placement

First, let’s review what we must measure before an ad impression is counted as viewable.

  1. A user must navigate to an area of the page where 50% of the ad’s pixels are visible in the browser window.
  2. The user must pause or proceed slowly enough that the ad is on screen for one continuous second. Scrolling past an ad too quickly won’t count.
  3. The ad must be rendered when the user navigates to it.

Site performance

Responsive web design iconWith so many screen sizes and devices for viewing content, “the fold” is no longer a fixed location. Consider using responsive web design and responsive ad units for improved viewability regardless of which device users use to visit your site.
