How Google’s New Chrome Ad Blocker Impacts Your Thrive Leads Opt-In Forms

If you’ve been keeping up with internet marketing news lately, you already know that Google’s new Chrome Ad Blocker rules took effect last month on February 15th.

It's almost like Google is expanding their previous "Mobile Friendly" opt-in form rules to now address a broader set of abusive desktop and mobile internet marketing behaviors.

Chrome's new ad blocking rules are specifically taking aim at intrusive and spammy ads from websites that market aggressively and have little respect for quality user experience (UX).

Although some in the internet marketing world are freaking out about these changes, we’re not bothered by them since they are focused primarily on eliminating awful ads...not your opt-in forms.

"Good Afternoon! Would you like to know when our next exposition is happening?" the museum clerk asks when you walk in.

"No, thank you. I'm just looking around for now" you answer.

"Okay, enjoy the photo exhibition, sir."

15 minutes later, after you've made your way through, decided you loved the exhibition and want more, you stop to ask the clerk: "Excuse me, how can I stay informed about what happens at the museum?"

"Simply give me your name and email sir and I'll add you to our list."

2 minutes later, while walking out, you're reading the welcome email on your phone and starting to plan which exposition to explore next weekend.

Now imaging what would have happened if after greeting you, the clerk simply disappeared... Would you still have signed up?

Same holds true for your website visitors. If they can't find where to sign up, they will just leave, never to be seen again.

‘Huh, that’s odd... Nothing. Oh well, it’ll probably pick up towards the end of the launch’ you think.

But it doesn’t. The launch ends up being a total dud.
