Display Network handles all the image display ads the businesses would like on numerous sites.
Good and Bad Sides of Display Ads
Some of these display ads are potential scams and are prone to having viruses. On the other hand, some have very interesting titles that make you click the link. In this case, it could be an interesting read that captivates your attention. These types of posts usually have a ‘CONTINUE’ button which when you click, it pops up with an ad. As you continue to read, the content creator gets paid every time you click ‘CONTINUE’, which is all thanks to the creative display ad.
