Adsense now supports the creation of a Responsive Link unit (in addition to the normal Responsive units that were available long time ago).

However, if you create a Responsive Link unit and place the code in your website, it shows very limited sizes such as 728x15, 468x15 etc which are very bad sizes in terms of CTR.

The following article shows how to modify the responsive ad code according to your needs:

[support.google.com...]

Does anyone know if the above article applies also to Responsive Link units or its just for the normal responsive display ads?

What I want to do is to create a Responsive Link unit and modify the code (according to the article above) in order to show 300x250 Link Unit sizes which are not available normally when creating a Link ad. This Link Unit size of 300x250 has much higher CTR than the normal link ad sizes.

Can I do the above with a responsive link ad or its against the Adsense TOS? I have contacted the Adsense forum but nobody has answered my question.


Thanks

Thanks for your reply,

It works fine for me as well but I'm asking if anybody knows if this is against Adsense TOS because a Link unit of 300x250 is not a standard link size.

"Please be assured that the examples described in this article are acceptable modifications of the AdSense ad code. You won't violate the AdSense program policies by modifying your responsive ad code in these approved ways."

Can anyone provide information on how they handle passbacks for their responsive ads? Seems you have to pick one size for the passback, no matter what the screen size, but that's not always efficient.

Added: I should say, I don't have another source for a responsive ad for a passback, just set sizes.

Works for link units. I did mine 200x150 to make room for more links while keeping the same width as the 200x90 one.

Before: AdLink 200x120 - 468x15 - 200x120
Now: 234x150 - 600x20 - 600x20

Works great.
