What to do you when you are struggling with low consent rates or Popup CTR?
When a user is required to provide consent but refuses to do so, it negatively impacts revenue because no ads are served. Here are some tips that might help improve your Consent Rate or Popup CTR and increase your ad revenues:
#1 – Resolve site latency or page load issues that could delay CMP popup.
To do this, you can check out tools like:
-Publisher Ads Audits for Lighthouse – https://developers.google.com/publisher-ads-audits
-Web Vitals – https://web.dev/vitals/
-PubGuru Ad Inspector – http://bit.ly/PGadinspector
#2 – Customize your CMP.
You can experiment with different fonts and colors and also change the wording. For example, you can test with “I understand” instead of “Consent” for the button users need to click.
#3 – Test which format or style gets higher CTR.
In Google Funding Choices, for example, the format with 2 buttons might perform better than the 3-button format. Testing different styles and layouts can help you find the sweet spot for maximizing user consent rates.
