How Are Inpage Push Ads Delivered To The Customers?


In a nutshell, these ads mimic the behavior of a traditional push notification when the user is browsing a site that serves this type of ads. The following animated graphic shows the ad behavior very accurately:

Here are a couple of real life examples that show such ad units on a publisher site:

Why In-puge Push Ads?


As traditional web push notification technology has gained popularity, we have seen a rise in abusive behavior of this technology by quite a few players. The abuse includes serving too many ads, thereby, inundating the user and showing ads of malicious nature.

As a result, the traditional push notification ads have come under a lot of scrutiny and major browsing platform adopting a strong stance against it. For example, Chrome browser has already started taking action against this on their newer product releases. In the future, these counter-measures are expected to be more stringent and potentially could lead to a death blow to all kinds of push notification ads in general.

In contrast, inpage push ads are not subjected to these counter-measures as the ads are delivered within the web page with the help of a javascript running locally in the browser session. Therefore, the in-page push ad technology can serve as a fallback, in case the traditional push ad serving becomes significantly challenging in the future.

Pros & Cons of In-page Push Ads


As a quick recap, here are the key advantages and disadvantages of inpage push ads

Pros

  • Floating inpage push ads easily garners user attention, thereby, resulting in high CTR.
  • Cannot be banned or restricted by browser as the serving is within the page itself and controlled by local JS.
  • Flexibility in terms of ad-size, ad-styling, text length etc. as it is not limited by the browser api
  • More accurate audience interest targeting because it is served while a user is browsing a particular website

Cons

  • Improperly placed inpage push ads (for example near video player controls) can generate a lot of undesired clicks on the ad leading to poor ROI for the advertiser
  • Will only work when the user is browsing a particular page unlike traditional or classic push ads which can be served even when browser is not being used.
  • Can be more expensive than traditional push ads because of more accurate targeting options leading to bidding wars.
