RESPONSIVE GOOGLE ADS LIMITATIONS


0

The Responsive Google Ads have its own set of limitations too. Few worth mentioning

  1. Screen orientations will not change the Responsive Ad
  2. In mobiles change of screen orientation leads to different width but Google ads will not change. Responsive Google ads is responsive on first page load only. If window size changes later, ads will not change. Try this at Responsive Adsense Example

  3. Responsive Ads report
  4. Responsive ads made me remove geeky javascript hacks for displaying/detecting various Ad sizes, however the performance report still do not show breakdown in Ad Size for Responsive ads. While this may be worse limitation but chances are Google guys are already on it !
    Please do not twist those javascript hacks to work with Responsive Google Ads for time being. Synchronous Ads code had its own limitation and hence hacks were needed, but responsive ads already have what was missing. Just be patient and explore your Adsense reports better to get max data.

  5. Unsupported on IE 8 and below version
  6. I wasted full day for this to work using javascript alternatives like
    Respond.js (Does not support "@media CSS style")
    Modernizer (Beyond my technical capability)
    css3-mediaqueries.js (Does not support "@media CSS style")

    The only way to get it working is specifying default size in CSS.responsive-ads { width: 468px; height: 60px; }So for IE 8 and below they will see constant banner ads.

    Should you worry about it ? Actually NO ! Reason is simple. Firstly only 3% of my traffic use them that includes me for browser testing. Secondly if it was about layout of my website, I would not sleep nights till I get it working (Ya call me perfectionist ;-)) but we are talking about AD SPACE.
    Think about it ....its Google Adsense headache not yours. If they are happy with banner ads (less revenue) then that's how it is !
