This type of full page ad is the least disruptive while still achieving the impact required by advertisers. It does not need to have a close button or timed close, since it scrolls away. We don’t recommend ads that take over the entire experience and require users to close it manually. It’s disruptive to the user experience and will result in users leaving your website.

Designing the creative and the sizes for the full page ad is challenging. To have an ad properly “full screen”, you need to design an ad that will work full screen for different screen sizes and resolutions (e.g. mobile, tablet, desktop). Each device has slightly different sizes so there’s an infinite combination. Within Google Ad Manager, we suggest you use the “native ad” type within a “fluid layout”. Another easier method is to design the ad in 2 different sizes: mobile and desktop/tablet, then let Google Ad Manager decide which to use.
