Says users are not getting to mobile content quickly enough because of intrusive ads

By Sam

Displaying a standalone interstitial that the user has to dismiss before accessing the main content.

Using a layout where the above-the-fold portion of the page appears similar to a standalone interstitial, but the original content has been inlined underneath the fold.Read the blog.
