Interstitials and algorithm changes. Ad blockers. Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMPs). Publishers have mountains to climb in trying to reach their audiences in this mobile-first world.

Intrusive interstitials will all but be eliminated due to Google's forthcoming algorithm change. Ad blockers are used by at least 25% of mobile users. Google's Accelerated Mobile Pages, which were previously limited to a carousel atop the mobile search engine results page (SERP) are now scattered throughout the results.

    Alternative income streams are always good, and the message of not putting all eggs into one basket is especialy true when it comes to the income topic. Thanks Claudia for sharing your opinion.
