What is an Anchor ad?
Anchor ads are the ads that appear on the top or bottom part of the website.
Anchor ads are posted on the edge of the user’s screen and can easily be turned off. These ads are primarily run on mobile devices but now they can also be displayed on a desktop computer or any other wider screen.
They appear at the top of the user’s screen unless it will have a negative impact on the user experience, in which case it may also be displayed at the bottom of the site.
When displayed at the top, anchor ads will only appear after the user scrolls down far enough that they will never cover the branding or navigation of your website.
