Research released by Google and highlighted in Ad Age suggests that over half (56.1%) of internet ads are not seen by humans. Publishers’ viewability rates are on average at 50.2%. Other findings in the report:
- Ad size and page position matter, but being above the fold does not guarantee viewability.
- Vertical ad units are the most likely to be seen by users.
- Viewability varies across industries, “with the highest viewability belonging to sites associated with more captive engagement.”
