What ads are acceptable?
Ads that have been identified as acceptable are those that abide by criteria specially developed for and by ad-blocking users. They are respectful, nonintrusive and relevant.
Nearly 200 million ad-blocking users have consented to seeing Acceptable Ads.
Without using Acceptable Ads
It’s clear that overwhelming amounts of poor-quality online advertising exist. This disrupts user experience and leads to millions of users installing ad blockers.
Users are frustrated, advertisers miss out on an important audience, and publishers fall short on advertising revenue. In this scenario, everyone loses.
With Acceptable Ads
The ecosystem of Acceptable Ads offers a sustainable and fair middle ground between user choice and monetization. The Acceptable Ads standard is defined with users in mind.
This helps provide noninvasive ad formats that they are happy to see, allowing publishers to increase their advertising revenue. Everyone wins.
