    One of my potential future niche, the google search results are filled with ads (4 ads result come before 1st) . Is that a big problem ??
    So normally, if you ranked your site 1st place, you could expect 35% of MS volume per month to your site. When it filled with ads , it decreases dramatically ?? or there are other behavioral factors (users see its a d and skip it) and it should not affect much of expected traffic ? Anyone have info regarding this ?

    Its baffling, so nobody discussed this issue before ??
    DO you generally avoid the niches where search rankings heavily crowded with ads (4 first spots) ???

    A lot of people use adblockers. So yea, still expect 35%.

    The expected traffic for the #1 place should be lowered because of that.

    Google expanded the number of snippets and ads in the SERP, try to find a niche/kw with minimum snippets and ads.

    P.s.

    Google snippets are the biggest (by far) theft of content on internet history, they take the content of the publishers and serve it directly to the user without the need of the user to pay a visit to the website, taking the ads revenue from publishers from incoming traffic.

    Super evil, ultra evil...

    Thx , now I should find anyone with this case and calculate the influence and behavioral aspects ... If we suppose the site is ranked 5th (without ads on top) I d be getting about 5% of MS traffic (according to sources ) now with ads even if I top the ranking my site will showing 5th ... Need to solve the puzzle to determine if it will be profitable or not
