The item from adsense concerning the use of alternative sizes of ads on responsive sites..was also posted on the official adsense blog in French..
Why Google have still not posted this "google approved" method of integrating adsense into "responsive sites" in English ( so as to make it clear for the non French and German speakers is strange )..I, or anyone else ( or even Google's translation engine ) can translate it..but no "translation" is as definitive as if Google were to just post it in English on their own inside adsense pages..
Either their approved method can only be used on responsive sites whose TLDs are in the languages that Google's approved method pages are in..( Fr and DE )..or the lack of this info in English from Google is a mere oversight ?..
Or they have got so used to using FUD..that they are hedging their bets in case adsense on responsive sites on mobile devices results in a flood of complaints from advertisers about inadvertent clicks..that they don't want to take the risk of sanctioning this method is the far bigger English speaking markets..
Below is what is at the foot of their French article giving this Google approved method..
Publié par Dairine Kennedy, au nom de l'équipe Google Mobile
I find it very hard to believe that Dairine Kennedy ( Irish ) has for a "mother tongue" , French or German..So surely this approved adsense implementation for responsive sites version was written in English first..and then translated internally by Google..
So they should repost in English..and clear up the "confusion"..unless the "test it in smaller markets first"..is the reason..
Responsive sites SEO benefits ? ..bounce rate reduced ( mobile and tablet users land, and stay to read, and as G measure such things ..and track mouse movements and IMO touch gestures )..I'm recoding my old sites ( with the exception of one which I'm leaving as a "control"..it is falling in SERPS slowly ) to "responsive" and creating my new sites in "responsive"..
Long hours and late nights..a lot of sites to do..But based on observed results ..well worth the effort..
