I'm finally getting around to experimenting with responsive ad units, and I've encountered a few surprises. Here's one: I changed my top banner ad to a responsive unit so it tightens up according to screen size and my CSS media queries -- no problem.
Now, here's the thing: I've kept a 360x250 ad below the main content (article) column as is, but since I implemented the responsive unit at the top the 336X250 bottom ad has decided to intermittently expand to fill its container (width:500px). And it's pretty ugly, even by G's standards -- a stack of single-line text ads with a reveal-on-hover feature. Anyone else experiencing this?
To prevent all this, I suppose I can put the bottom ad in its own <div> and restrict its width to 336px. Or, I can set the ad option for image only, which I assume won't expand. Or, I can do nothing and assume that Google knows best when it comes to optimizing ad performance.
