We know one of the biggest challenges publishers currently face is designing websites that adapt to different screen sizes, resolutions and user needs. Responsive ad units helps you deliver the best possible user experience on your pages: You can dynamically control the presentation of your website according to the properties of the screen/device that it’s being viewed on. Responsive ads automatically adapt to the size of your user's screen, meaning publishers can spend more time creating great content, and less time thinking about the size of their ads.
Today we’re happy to share some product updates to complement and strengthen your strategy, with new features for our responsive ad units and a multi-screen optimization score now available.
The new full width ads on mobile devices
Our experiments show that full-width responsive ads perform better on mobile devices in portrait mode. Previously Responsive ads fitted to standard sizes. The new launch will now automatically expand ads to the full-width of the user's screen when their device is orientated vertically.
To implement the new full-width responsive ads, you can simply create a responsive ad unit in your AdSense account.
