Ad Placement and Behavior
* Only one AdSense for mobile ad unit may be displayed per mobile webpage.
* A “double” ad unit can only be placed on the bottom of the page, but may appear above the page’s footer (e.g. navigational links, copyright messages, etc.).
* Google ads displayed on a publisher’s mobile-compliant webpage may not be modified or obscured in any way.
* After a user click, display of the advertiser’s landing page may not be interrupted or prevented in any way. For instance, publishers may not display their own interstitial pages before taking users to the advertiser’s website.
Similarly, there is an image ad format also available. And only one image ad is shown(no multiple image ads can be shown using AdSense for Mobile Contextual Advertising).
There is no preview tool to see the Ads, you will just have to use any mobile phones to see the ads.
And your website must be written in one of these languages..
- wml (WAP 1.x.)
- xhtml (WAP 2.0)
- chtml (imode, etc.)
How are mobile ads targeted?
AdSense for mobile ads are precisely matched to the content of your mobile webpage using the same targeting technology as AdSense for content. AdSense crawlers scan the page to determine its content and then automatically serve ads that are relevant to what your visitors see.
In order for Google to properly target ads to your mobile website, crawler needs to be able to access your mobile webpages. The phone useragent Google use to crawl your site will contain the string “Mediapartners-Google”, so set up your web server to grant access to your mobile content any useragent that contains “Mediapartners-Google”. If you don’t know about the useragent, then contact your hosting company and confirm that, “Mediapartners-Google” is allowed to access your contents.
Also be aware that Google will not be able to crawl your webpages for ads targeting if you are restricting access to your mobile website to a specific set of IP addresses.
