Mediavine strives to play nice with all others, but once in awhile it just doesn't happen. The following things don't work with us, so take a peek and if anything looks familiar please investigate more!

___________________________________________

Disqus

Problem

Automatically enables ads (Disqus Reveal) when you reach a certain size.

Solution

  • Apply for exemption to remove ads. 

___________________________________________

Dynamic Content Gallery

Problem

Overwrites core JavaScript functions, which prevents several key bidders in our auction from working.

Solution

  • Remove plugin. 

___________________________________________

Shareaholic

Problem

Automatically enables new ad units. Drives down performance of MPN ad units and causes your earnings to be reduced.

Solution

  • Log in to toggle off ads.

___________________________________________

SumoMe

Problem

Mobile share buttons in the footer push our mobile adhesion over the content, causing a Google policy violation.

Solution

  • Disable or move location of mobile share buttons.

___________________________________________

Theia Post Slider

Problem

Alters HTML of both slideshow posts and non-slideshow posts and causes a conflict with in-content ads. If enabled, will cause serious RPM implications on mobile.

Solution

  • Remove plugin. 

___________________________________________

Mailchimp Subscriber Popup

Problem

Alters the load order of site elements, causing inconsistencies in the loading of Mediavine ads.

Identification

Search the site HTML for "dojo". If the code contains that, it is the version that conflicts and needs to be removed.

Solution

  • Remove pop-up. 

___________________________________________

Cloudflare's "Rocket Loader" feature

Problem

Breaks javascript causing MPN ads not to load.

Solution

  • Disable Rocket Loader.

___________________________________________

Lazy Loading (Lazy Load XT, Jetpack, WP Rocket)

Problem

Lazy Loading of iframes is a conflict with Mediavine ads, which are lazy loaded. Doubling up on lazy loading causes our ads to get lazy loaded twice, significantly harming site performance.  It also causes an embedded Mediavine Video Player to display a loading screen. 

Solution

  • If plugin allows it, make sure plugin is set to ONLY lazy load images and NOT iFrames and other embed types.
  • Otherwise, remove / disable the lazy loading feature.
  • For further information, see our article on Lazy Loading Images.

Thrive Architect

Problem

Thrive Architect wraps your content in a <div></div>. Our script will not break up content wrapped in <div></div>, which means you would have no in-content ads.

Solution

  • If you have implemented Thrive Architect on every page site-wide, we can adjust your in-content selectors to accommodate. 
  • If you are only using it on some of your posts you will need to Manually Place Ads in Your Content Using Content Hints on the posts or pages affected. 
  • Breaking your HTML is never great for SEO, so you might also want to research other less-invasive marketing solutions.

WP Bakery (formerly Visual Composer) 

Problem

Visual Composer removes paragraph breaks by stripping out <p> tags in HTML, essentially forcing all content into one paragraph. Our script will not place ads within a paragraph, which means you will have few in-content ads. 

Solution

  • If you are using it on some of your posts you will need to Manually Place ads in your content using content hints on the posts or pages affected. 
  • Breaking your HTML is never great for SEO, so you might also want to research other less-invasive marketing solutions.

Simply Pinterest

Problem

Simply Pinterest mimics a post builder and wraps your content in
<div class="bpp_post_wrapper">.

This prevents in-content ads from appearing on desktop and mobile ads. 

Solution

  • Remove Plugin

___________________________________________________________

Elegant Divi Themes

Problem

These themes automatically enable "Smooth Scrolling" which can affect performance of in-content ads. 

Solution

  • Turn off "Smooth Scrolling."

___________________________________________________________

Infinite Scrolling

Problem

Causes issues with viewability and performance.

Solution

  • Disable infinite scroll

___________________________________________________________

404 to 301 plugins

Problem

Causes issues with server overload. These types of redirection plugins are typically used to redirect all 404 errors to any page that you set, using 301 (or any other) status. 

It is common for ads to request resources that do not exist or that they do not have access to, but typically they will return a 404 or 401 error that does not affect performance.

However, with a 404 to 301 redirect plugin, it causes each of these to result in an additional page call, putting more load on the server and affecting the overall performance of the site and ads. 

Solution

  • Disable the plugin

___________________________________________________________

Jetpack Ads

Problem

Running Jetpack's ads conflicts with our exclusivity agreement, and also breaks the auction causing your Mediavine ads to not perform well. 

Solution

Disable this setting in your Jetpack Settings in the Traffic section.
