What is an Acceptable Ad?
Ads that shall be treated as Acceptable Ads have to comply with the following criteria:
Ads must not disrupt the user's natural reading flow. Such ads must be placed on top, side or below the Primary Content 1 .
Acceptable ads criteria placement
Ads should always be recognizable as ads, and distinguishable from all other content (e.g. are not hiding the label, are not misleading users into thinking an ad is part of the primary content). Ads should be clearly marked with the word "advertisement" or its equivalent.
Acceptable ads criteria label
Individual ad-size requirements depend on the placement of the ad:
When placed above the primary content, the maximum height of an ad should be 200px.
Acceptable ads criteria percentage
Text ads designed with excessive use of colors and/or other elements to grab attention are not permitted.
Static image ads may qualify as acceptable, according to an evaluation of their unobtrusiveness based on their integration on the webpage.
Search ads are permitted to be larger and take up additional screen space.
Ads on pages with no primary content
Only text ads are allowed. For webpages without any primary content (e.g. error or parking pages), the criteria differ depending on:
No placement limitations.
No size limitations.
Other Acceptable Ads formats?
Are your ads displayed on alternative screens, or are you convinced that you have an innovative Acceptable Ads format which doesn't fit the ads outlined above? Let us know!
1 The 'Primary Content' is defined as (based on Mozilla's description of the <main> HTML element): The Primary Content consists of content that is directly related to, or expands upon the central topic of a document or the central functionality of an application. This content should be unique to the document, excluding any content that is repeated across a set of documents such as sidebars, navigation links, copyright information, site logos, and search forms (unless, of course, the document's main function is a search form).
2 The 'common screen size' for desktop is 1366x768, based on data from StatCounter.
3 The 'common screen size' for mobile is 360x640, based on data from StatCounter.
4 The 'common screen size' for tablets is 768x1024, based on data from StatCounter.
What is not considered an Acceptable Ad?
The following types of ads are currently unacceptable *, and cannot be considered for inclusion on the whitelist:
Ads that visibly load new ads if the Primary Content does not change
Ads with excessive or non user-initiated hover effects
Autoplay-sound or video ads
Generally oversized image ads
Interstitial page ads
Overlay in-video ads
Pre-roll video ads
Rich media ads (e.g. Flash ads, Shockwave ads, etc.)
* Except when the user intentionally interacts with the ad (e.g. clicks on the ad to see a video ad playing).
Why is this feature enabled by default?
Unfortunately, this is the only way to accomplish the goals described above. If the majority of Adblock Plus users have this function activated, advertisers will have the incentive to produce better ads.
But I hate all ads!
No problem, you can disable this feature at any time:
Chrome, Maxthon, Opera, Safari - Click the Adblock Plus icon and select Options. Uncheck Allow some nonintrusive advertising.
Firefox - Click the Adblock Plus icon and select Filter preferences. Uncheck Allow some nonintrusive advertising.
Internet Explorer - Click the Adblock Plus icon and select Settings. Uncheck Allow some nonintrusive advertising.
Adblock Browser for Android - Open Settings, tap Ad blocking > Configure Acceptable Ads and uncheck Allow some nonintrusive advertising.
No. Unfortunately, it isn't technically possible to recognize ads that meet our Acceptable Ads criteria automatically. We have agreements with some websites and advertisers which stipulate that only advertising matching our criteria will be displayed when Adblock Plus users visit these particular sites. These ads will be unblocked (i.e. added to the Acceptable Ads exception list which is enabled per default). No applicant will be favored or treated differently, and no one can buy their way onto the whitelist.

I agree! Times when I want to print an article because I want to learn something. What comes up on the To Print page ads from the right margin and not the info I want. It sucks!!!
I can no longer view MyYahoo homepage because of the website's insistence to change it. I am forced to hover my mouse over the mail button, just to get to my mail before the massive pop-up shows up and shuts it all off until I swallow the "NEW" Yahoo. I don't want it, and I wish I could shut off the page from loading in every single CPU robbing piece of garbage that Yahoo thinks I need to see. I haven'y been able to view my homepage for months. I guess you'll just have to step up the pop-up speed so I can'y use my e-mail either, -OR-,,after 100 times of not accepting the latest and greatest dynamic loading monster, maybe you could take the hint? I am really irritated that I will probably have to change my browser and e-mail to get away from this constant "thrust in my face" theme of forced attrition. Take the hint already, I am not doing it. I will throw my computer out the window first
P I A
All of the pop ups are just a PIA, I would buy ANYTHING because I saw it in a add.
This is beyond annoying . It is an invasion of use . Like having a little child at your feet that was never told be quiet or allowed to do whatever they want
Pls remove the instructions for YOUR tech page from every article I choose to read!!!
