Default Banner ads block content on desktop PC.

I'm using Windows 10 and the latest version of Google Chrome.

I keep seeing "skyscraper" banner ads that extend/overlap content, rendering them unreadable.

I've attached an example.

Just wanted to let the site owner know so he/she can update the Google ads options.

Looks like they should display 300x250 but instead are displaying the taller ads.

I imagine most of us are using an adblocking plugin in our browsers, either AdBlocker Plus or uBlock Origin. Free, only takes a minute to install. Unless you just like ads...

I use Adblock Plus. I don't even see the example you posted. Good, free software.

Thanks, I'll go the adblocker route. I run a website also and know you can alter the Google AdSense settings for the site to not show the larger images for this area.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. This should be resolved now.

This was only affecting the "old style" for the website. The new layout shouldn't be affected by this.

Thanks, David
