Ad Viewability Explained and the Power of Google

What is ad viewability, anyway? To put this as simply as possible, ad viewability is a term that is used to describe when video ads are visible to users, either via desktop website or mobile app. The Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB) has instilled a standard, according to which at least 50% of an ad or banner creative must be shown on screen for over a second.

To see things a bit more clearly, it is imperative to discern the chief reasons why viewability is now an integral part of online advertising and a crucial segment of today’s online monetization landscape. Viewability has occurred when:

  • Ads load without being in the user’s view.
  • Ads fail to load because of network problems or poor bandwidth.
  • There’s widespread utilization of ad blockers.



Google has decided to act on this, and a number of technology companies, naturally, followed suit. Time and again, the industry giant has highlighted the importance of viewability, hence publishers are actively imbuing their own monetization strategies with this facet. The implementation of ad performance measurement is now an essential part of video ad campaigns for many businesses.

In modern-day video advertising it boils down to one fact – if an ad isn’t viewed or seen by the user, then, quite simply, it won’t have an impact. In other words, it will fail to deliver the desired message regarding your product or brand. For that reason, Google has poured a lot of effort into illustrating and sending out one clear message – viewability matters.
