Google Chrome 71 to Block More Intrusive Advertising

Google Chrome already blocks some bad advertising, but starting in December, Chrome 71 will start removing persistent abusive advertising experiences from a small number of sites. These are ads that intentionally deceive and force users to take actions that may redirect pages.

As a result, today we are announcing expanded efforts to better protect users against these abusive experiences. Starting in December 2018, Chrome 71 will remove all ads on the small number of sites with persistent abusive experiences. Site owners can use the Abusive Experiences Report in their Google Search Console to see if their site contains any of these abusive experiences that need to be corrected or removed. Site owners will have a 30 day window to fix experiences flagged by the Report before Chrome removes ads.
