  • Mobile Banners
    • Desktop banners sizes do not fit well on mobile optimized websites and hence cannot be used in mobile or responsive websites. To help you monetize your mobile websites, we started offering mobile banners in 2014. These banners support sizes which fit well on mobile screens. The banner creative is also optimized to engage with customers on mobile devices. The mobile banners are available in following sizes: 320x250, 320x50, and 125x125.

  • Responsive Banners
    • Until now, if you had a responsive website you had to write code to serve optimal banner size for each device. If you had separate mobile and desktop websites, you picked a different banner size for each website. Responsive banners allow you to integrate one banner code in your responsive, mobile or desktop websites and serve right banner sizes. Responsive banner currently supports leaderboard (horizontal banner) placement. The served banner size depends on parent container width. For example, if the container width is greater than 728 pixels, banner of size 728x90 is served. If the container width is less than 728 pixels, banner of size 320x50 is served.
