This is big news, thank you. Can anyone share if their account has it enabled and how did it affect earning?

Not yet, but I'd like to try it.

Yes to effected, nothing major to report about earnings just yet, probably because of the Thanksgiving in US

I won't be trying it for two reasons.

1: I do not cater for mobile/cellphone users.
2: I think it is wrong to have an advert like that. If we were to place an advert in a floating/anchored style, we would be banned.

Also bad timing. On iOS, 7 you have to tap the top/bottom of screen to bring bad hidden menu bars.

I was wondering about that, some phone functions include tapping the bottom of the screen to pull up menus... will this ad cover that area?

Oh this is a bad idea. I hate those ads that do that on my mobile screen, I'm working off a small screen to begin with, don't punish me. So... I won't be trying these out.

From the advertiser's end, has anyone seen a 320x50 ad option in their AdWords account? I have 300x50 but not 320x50.

I wonder accidental/invalid clicks this will lead to?

How do you find out if this has been eneabled in your account? I have that banner size listed as "mobile banner", but does it anchor? Just curious as I really don't like the idea of it staying in the face of the user, and invalid clicks will be high I'm sure.

This has to be setup for you by your adsense account manager, and requires some extra code on your ad tag.
So far results seem quite favorable. What I don't know is whether they serve the anchor on devices based on viewport width or whether they are testing the user agent.

Does anyone know if this has been rolled out to everyone as they said would happen a few months back? I still can't see it in my account. Thanks

"Improving the user experience" is Google doublespeak at its best. Anchored ads are simply annoying and I doubt that users will like them because they can be hidden. As an advertiser, I welcome the option, though. Also, I'm really interested in how the swipe-to-dismiss feature is implemented as many users won't dare to touch an ad. This is also something that might lead to fake clicks.

I emailed support. Was just curious if it had been publicly rolled out and I'd missed it. I don't see it in my ad options.
