Implementing affiliate ads on responsive sites

How do you implement affiliate banners on responsive sites - my affiliates do appear to supply responsive ads.
Do poeple use 2 or more ad formats and use display:block or display:none to show the appropriate one?

Or does this cause problems with impressions?

Affiliate banners should resize appropriately same as any other image in responsive design. If yours aren't resizing as they should, be sure the container is not preventing it. The only banners I've seen that give resize problems are AdSense - so they only get used in footers on those sites where I've switched to responsive css.

BTW -I have noticed a definite increase (cross my fingers!) in earnings on responsive resizing sites. Don't know how long it will last but it is significant and worth the work to edit more pages. I currently only have done a few test sections to see how it goes. I have always used % width to adjust to various sizes, even back in html 4 but responsive is different and takes everything with it in downsizing.

Thank you. Adsense is fine - have been using their responsive ads where you can use media queries to select any ad size you want.

Simply resizing banner images won't work for me - would realy like to use completely different sized or shaped banners in different media queries.
