Hey guys,


I got a bit confused while researching this issue.

Is there a 20% text restriction on image ads for the display network? 


Thanks for your help,

Hi @Marketing Bali T,


Positive, there is. The help page says with regard to responsive image ads: "Avoid text. Text may cover no more than 20% of the image."

Hi Maria,


As per my knowledge, the restriction for 20% text is only for Facebook and not for GDN. It is recommended to have less text on the banner for effective visibility and performance. 


However, It's a yes in the case of "Responsive Ads".


Let me know if you have any further question or concerns.
