Most Used Ad Sizes in the Shopping Niche Among Publishers
It’s no surprise that the leaderboard is the most commonly used ad size for both advertisers and publishers – leaderboards immediately capture a viewer’s attention before diving into the site’s actual content.
Google has pointed to this ad type as a top-performing ad size, as well.
Responsive Ads vs. Images
Advertisers and publishers alike are more inclined to use responsive ads instead of image ads.
Advertisers are even more likely than publishers to choose responsive ads, which makes sense: advertisers have so many products to promote, and making ads responsive works in their favor.
Among ecommerce publishers, the split between responsive ads and images is closer to equal, indicating that publishers are keen on testing ad formats to determine which will earn a higher click-through rate.
If you run an ecommerce site and are relying on images alone, consider testing responsive ads, as well!
