Google decides to crack down on Mobile sites with Obstructive ads - how will it affect you?Google has decided to crack down on the mobile sites that have obstructive ads. In a recent move that would become effective from January, 2017 - Google has decided to take stringent action on those sites which come up with ads that overlap or hide the main content of the web page.
The ads which will need the users to click or tap on the close button to be able to view the main page would be treated as being obstructive. That would make all those sites that bring up pop up ads not abiding by the guidelines. Such sites would be ranked lower in the search rankings.
How will this affect the bloggers and website owners? Already affected by the AdBlockers and such, what effect will it have on the earning prospects of a blogger?
I would welcome Techians to come up with their views on the same.
