"We've learned since then that this approach did not go far enough", said Vivek Sekhar, Product Manager for Google. This week, the company said that roughly half of these unwanted experiences include these abusive ads, justifying the crackdown. This is Google's new attempt to reducing intrusive and misleading ads on the Internet that often lead to malicious websites and steal personal information as well.

The announcement makes no mention of punitive actions beyond blocking ads, which should considerably impact earnings of sites employing deceptive practices.
Google shared an example of an abusive mobile experience on a mobile device that initiates an involuntary app install.

Google emphasised its new security decision is part of an effort to ensure "users can interact with their intended content on the web", rather than being bugged by abusive experiences.
Google said there are only a "small number of sites" that show such ads in the first place, so users may not see much of a difference. These measures have been insufficient to prevent misleading or unsafe ads, hence Google taking further steps to banish them from the Web. However, while these protocols protect users against misleading behavior on websites, they didn't tackle the same kind of behavior in ads, pop-up or otherwise. These types of abusive ads are a real hassle, and ad-dependent companies like Google are doing what they can to fight back against them.
