What is Native Ads In Google Search Results?

Native advertising is a form of advertising that differs from regular methods, such as banners and pop-ups. The idea of native advertising is to insert ads into web content without making them intrusive and annoying. In most cases, native advertisements are relevant to a page's content. One of the most popular native ads is content suggestion. Websites deliver links/thumbnails to similar articles (usually on other websites) together with "You may also like", "Recommended by", and other similar tags. In doing so, developers draw users' attention without annoying them. Users sometimes see native ads in websites that do not use this advertising model. This is due to presence of various adware-type applications. In this article, we address advertisements displayed by Google.
