Opening ads in a new window
"expected internet behavior"...?

Can someone explain how it's possible that in some countries opening an ad in a new window is "expected internet behavior" while in other countries it is not? I thought opening an ad in a new window is an option that can be changed from Adsense options? Do Chinese people in masses set their browsers to open links in new windows?

Can I open the ads in a new window?

Generally, it is our policy to not allow Google ads to open in a new window. However, in a few markets, including China, we've found that opening ads in a new window better aligns with expected internet behavior and provides a more consistent, intuitive user experience.

Different countries simply evolve different customs. There's no one at the top in each country setting standards.

If you use Ad Manager, you can set them to open in a new window. I did find this seemed to drastically inflate impressions, leading to lower CTR though. And I don't know if CTR has a direct influence on smart pricing, but I wouldn't be surprised if it did. It's pretty important on the advertising side.
