Using AdSense Mobile? Your Code Expires on May1, 2012
Better Replace It NOW!

If you are using AdSense code for mobile, AdSense now requires that you replace ALL your AdSense code before May 1, 2012.

What remains unclear to me is whether or not one must replace their AdSense code, if one is NOT using mobile ("high-end devices"). For instance, iPad AdSense code? Is there an up-to-the-limit maximum screen-width involved?

I don't think so, my normal ads display just fine on my iPad.

No, you will not need to replace any Adsense code for high end devices.

If you want to continue using Adsense for Mobile for older devices such as the older Blackberries, you will need to replace that code before the deadline.

On my sites with no adsense for mobile, ads are showing just fine, but with those god awful arrows. :)

Haha. I noticed those recently while testing some ads (I am ad blind and never noticed them in the past on Android).

Did the AdSense terms of service change already? I thought that undue attention (such as arrows) were a big taboo with Google? It appears that as other core Google services have abandoned their common sense golden rules, so has the AdSense division.

@Sally Stitts -- Great question. I'm a Google Product Manager working on this launch. Here's a few quick clarifications that hopefully address your question:

The only ad units affected by this launch are AdSense for Mobile Content ads using the "iPhones and other highend devices only" setting. These ad codes will need to be updated by May 1, 2012.

-- For an illustrated explanation, have a look at this screenshot: [goo.gl...]
-- If you are not using the AdSense for Mobile Content product, you won't be affected.
-- If you are using AdSense for mobile content, but your ad units use the "All Phones" setting, you won't be affected.

For more details, see an excerpt from the notification email that went out to publishers.

-------- Excerpt from email to AdSense publishers --------

To complete this migration, we're asking all publishers who have AdSense for mobile ad units that are meant for "iPhones and other highend devices only" to update their ad code as soon as possible. As of today, you will find the mobile ad unit sizes within the AdSense for content section of your AdSense interface. Implementing Google AdSense now will allow you to continue monetizing your mobile content after May 1, 2012 without disruption.

If you are using the AdSense for mobile ad units meant for "All Phones", you will continue to be able to serve ads to both WAP phones and highend phones.

For more questions about how our mobile ads products will work now, click here:http://goo.gl/BtTcI. For additional support on Google AdSense, visit the Help Center at [support.google.com...]

Hope that helps,
