Consumers are most receptive to ads on shopping, news, and social media sites

Key stat: US consumers are most receptive to ads on shopping (36%), news (35%), social media (35%), and entertainment (34%) websites, per Q3 2023 data from Integral Ad Science.

Beyond the chart:

  • No type of website ranked above 36%, showing consumers aren’t eager to see ads.
  • Consumers’ relative acceptance of ads on shopping sites is good news for retail media search and display ads on retailer websites.
  • While consumers being receptive to ads on news and entertainment sites is good news for advertisers, it may be more difficult to convert on these sites, as consumers usually aren’t browsing with the intention to shop.
