Getting your digital ad seen by its intended audience shouldn't be a struggle - as viewability isn't even a click through or a conversion. Still, it's considered a win if half the ad is visible for a second or two (depending on the network and the ad type).
While there are many calling for
100 percent viewability, there are steps brands can take themselves to improve viewability including:
Using Responsive Design Responsive ads fit the browsers visitors are using to access a website, which not only provides a better user experience but can also improve viewability since the campaigns will render properly regardless of device being used.
Consider Page Speed
Google recommends that brands ensure page loads are fast and reliable, including ad rendering time. Use of asynchronous ad tags is recommended by Google, and speed optimization tools such as Google Pagespeed can be used to analyze and optimize site performance according to the network. Mobile sites, for example, that loaded within 5 seconds, versus 19 seconds, were observed to have 25 percent higher viewability.
Produce Great Content Easy enough, right? While there are a lot of recommendations about improving viewability, one of the key components to whether an ad will be seen is if a person is willing to invest a few seconds of their time with it.
Go Vertical According to Google, the most viewable ad sizes are the vertical sizes units, for example, 160x600.
Avoid the Top Google suggests (again) that the most viewable position for an ad is right above the fold, not at the top of the page.
