How do I stop adds from covering text

Hi @Frank P,

 

Are you speaking from the standpoint of operating an AdWords account, or from the standpoint of a consumer/public web surfer that is landing on websites/pages that have ads blocking the content you are wanting to see?

 

The first thing to realize is that screen size, screen resolution, zoom features in web browsers, font sizes enlarged with the operating system... all play a part in what each person sees.

 

The second thing to realize is that we can help with the operations of your AdWords account. If there is a technical issue affecting you managing it, you can open your AdWords account and click on the gear icon in the upper right hand corner and call the support number shown. Only they can access your account with you and go over what you are seeing.

 

The third thing to realize is that there are trillions of web pages online today. What the owner or operator does is theirs to decide. Some do use ads that must be seen before the content can be viewed. Personally, I hate these ads and find myself closing the page out and finding other sources for content. Some want you to wait 15 seconds, others want you to click on some hidden X somewhere, which the standard place is in the upper right hand corner of the ad. However, some think they are crafty to move the X to the left hand corner... or to move it several inches above and away from the actual ad. These elusive X's are often off the screen entirely, depending on the facts I mention above.

 

If you find ads that you feel are a Google AdWords product that are not behaving nice, you can feel out this interactive complaint form and allow Google to review it. You could also play around with your settings, as mentioned above, and see if it helps. And you could write the websites themselves and explain that you cannot see the content over the ads.   

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

From  a user's standpoint: there is triangle at the top corner of the ad. Click on it and you'll see an option to report an ad covering the text.

I did click on the X in the corner and chose the option that the ad was covering the text. The choices text went away but the blank ad box remained and still covers the text of an article with no way to close the box. This has happened so many times I just give up and search for the article somewhere else or just give up. Why give us a choice and then not close the offending box?

I had that also. It could take a while and you should submit the ad several times before ad slot fixed.. Google sends a request to the publisher to fix the ad slot, and the publisher might not act immediately.

 From the 3 vertical dots in right corner of screen, go to request desktop site. That's it. You'll be able to read the article and everything on the bottom.

No need to do the "settings" stuff.

But, ANOTHER ad will pop up covering the text again. See my other reply.
