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.
