Animated HTML5 ads

Create professional, versatile and responsive ads

Using HTML5 ads can greatly benefit your display advertising campaigns. Animations capture your audience’s attention and generate more engagement, higher CTR and, in the end, a higher conversion rate.

HTML5 is supported by all major web browsers and can be used for much more than just advertising banners. You can create engaging animations at the fraction of the file size, making them perfect for any additional functionality you might want to add to your website or web store.

Create responsive ads that will automatically adjust to the correct size based on the resolution of the screen your banners or visuals appear on.


What is a html5 banner ad?

A HTML5 banner ad is an ad that enables animation and interactive content, and it’s also responsive, which means the design will look good across different browsers and devices that can render HTML5. HTML5 is the code used to animate certain elements of a banner or the entire banner ad itself. HTML5 ads replaced Flash ads, which were broadly used since the early 2000s.

Where can I place responsive display banners?

Responsive display banners are the default ad type for the Google Display Network and can be used in Display and Smart Display campaigns. Google will automatically generate ads based on the assets you upload (logo, images, headlines, videos, and descriptions). Thanks to machine learning, Google will determine what size and format fit different ad placements available across the web. This means that your responsive display ad can show as a text ad in a mobile app while also appearing as a banner ad on a website.

What are the most common banner ad sizes?

There are a few different sizes that Google recommends when running banner ads on mobile devices and desktop. For desktop, these are the ones that work best: 300 x 250, 336 x 280, 728 x 90, 970 x 90, 468 x 60, 300 x 600, 160 x 600, 250 x 250, and 200 x 200. For mobile devices, you can use 300 x 200, 300 x 50, 300 x 100, 250 x 250, and 200 x 200.

What are the qualities of an effective online banner for ads?

To create an effective online banner ad, you should focus on: using common banner sizes; thinking about your audience when writing the copy; adding a clear CTA that drive people to take action; using an eye-catching design that’s relevant to what you’re advertising; being concise to make sure people understand your message; being clear; using animation to engage people; choosing colors that stand out.

How can I make my responsive banner more attractive?

Here are a few tips for creating an attractive responsive banner: use bold colors that grab everyone’s attention; incorporate animated visual elements; use a compelling, short copy that is readable on any device; use a typeface that matches the colors and overall style of the banner; don’t mix more than two fonts in one single banner; never forget about a strong CTA.

What is a good resolution for a banner?

The image resolution determines the quality of the banner. The lower the image's resolution, the smaller the file size. That’s why it’s important to ensure your banner ad is under 150 kb, which is the size limit for Google Ads. When it comes to banner resolution, 72 PPI (Pixels per Inch) is used most often, which corresponds with a laptop screen's resolution.
