Google: Don’t Make Cookie Consent Banners Annoying

Google said when it comes to your cookie consent banners, make sure not to make those banners annoying. John Mueller of Google was asked, “does cookie consent banner disturb user experience?” John implied it only does when the banner is annoying.

So as long as you implement a cookie consent banner in a professional and not intrusive manner, you should be okay.

What is annoying? That is a very personal question, don’t you think? 🙂
