Peter. I know you need them. But can’t they be on the side?
It’s difficult posting from an iPad.

Thanks for pointing it out. Some of the Google ad positions are automated. A couple of months ago I noticed an ad was added between page loads and that was too annoying so I turned that one off. I'll see whether there are settings for that bottom ad. However, as I was typing this reply, I clicked the arrow in the top left of the ad to hide it, so perhaps that is a good solution.

There is a fine line with ads, if you get too obtrusive people will use ad blockers.

Placement is key

I run numerous websites/blogs and I place the ads top, bottom but they are fairly unobtrusive.

The bigger ads are in the side panel but they move to under all content on small screens. You can adjust and modify at what size that starts which could include ipads.

The other thing is you have to test every screen on mobile, if an ad obstructs the content field with the keyboard raised then it's considered obtrusive.

I identify with a similar screenshot while using Chrome on my mobile in *landscape* mode. Even after collapsing the ad, the keyboard still blocks more than half the content!

Pages may rearrange themselves when zoomed in or out to a certain degree. When I face difficult ad placement - most often on imdb.com - I try zooming and at some point the ads move out of the way. I use Firefox on a Linux desktop - try it and see what happens in your situation.

Interesting topic...

Can site owner/manager actually determine/SEE who is avoiding ads?

No. Technically you could detect an ad blocker, but that's a bit different and most sites don't do this.

Please write your comments in the forum.
