Chrome has been ostensibly blocking these "intrusive" ads for many of us since past year, but it will start following the same behavior in the rest of the world beginning on July 9th.
While Chrome will automatically filter ads on sites that fail their ad experience reports, users can ultimately decide if they see ads on blocked sites.
Google announced this week that its ineffective ad blocker for Chrome will be distributed worldwide starting in July.
"We follow the Better Ads Standards when determining which websites to filter ads on in Chrome".
Chrome's built-in ad blocker isn't an ad blocker in the classical meaning of the term. It doesn't block all ads, but only ads on sites that feature intrusive adverts that have a negative impact on users' internet browsing experience.
The 12 ad formats deemed particularly annoying based on the Coalition for Better Ads survey data.
On the mobile side, eight types of ads have been banned including pop-up ads, prestitial ads, ad density higher than 30 per cent, flashing animated ads, auto-playing videos with sound, postital ads with countdowns, full-screen scrollover ads and large sticky ads. Today, the Better Ads Standards lists 12 ad experiences that are considered to have a negative impact. Google analyzes sites and warns those with overly intrusive ads that they'll be added to a blacklist if they don't change their ways. It's been great news for those of us in the U.S., Canada, and Europe so far, as it means tens of thousands of websites no longer display those aggressive adverts.
Google recommends that you do not change this setting and allow Chrome to continue blocking ads on abusive sites in order to protect you from malware and other unwanted experiences. The search giant says two-thirds of the websites previously breaching the guidelines have altered their strategy to comply with them, and that it has only filtered one percent of ads using this scheme out of millions it investigated.
