Two Second Animation Rule on Mobile
The TJ team continues its sweep of sites on our network while implementing Google’s Abusive Ad Experience rules.
It has also drastically changed our review process–as well as our rules and regulations.

Here’s another one of our previous posts you’ll find useful which completely details our animation rules.
