The content display management script can include instructions that can cause the client device to: (a) set a scroll range of the information resource from a first location to a second location in the information resource; (b) display, within a portion of the information resource between the first location and the second location, the first content portion and an ad that can include actionable item; and (c) set, responsive to detecting an interaction on the actionable item, the scroll range from the first location to a third location of the information resource.



Application Cards as Advertisements

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 08:00:00 EST

A server includes a network communication device, a storage device, and a processing device that executes computer-readable instructions. When the computer-readable instructions are executed by the processing device, the computer-readable instructions cause the processing device to receive advertisement data that corresponds with a web advertisement. The advertisement data includes an advertisement uniform resource locator (URL) that refers to a website advertised by the web advertisement. In addition, the computer-readable instructions cause the processing device to determine an advertisement card object based on the advertisement data. The advertisement card object includes a card label, a card image, and graphical user interface (GUI) elements. The computer-readable instructions cause the processing device to render an advertisement card that displays the card label, the card image and the GUI elements, and transmit the advertisement card object via the network communication device.
