Google Will Rank Mobile Sites With Pop-ups Lower In Search Result

Filed in Google by on August 23, 2016 1 Comment

Google will soon rank sites with clumsy interstitials ads lower than those which are more responsible, the company announced today in its blog post.

The change which will take effect on January 2017, will affect mobile sites, and only those which have ads that take up an entire screen or otherwise block content wholly. Ads that try to trick you into thinking it’s part of the content (like leaving the article header in place with ads below it) will also be affected.

Some full-screen interstitials won’t be affected. Easily dismissed banners, age verification and login boxes are okay by Google’s standards.

Google is also dropping the ‘mobile-friendly’ label from search results. It found that almost 85 percent of webpages meet the criteria for mobile, so it’s dropping the search tag entirely.
