Hi so I might activate Adsense overlay ads (only the one below on the lower edge of the mobile).

Has anyone had any experience with the earnings for this advert type for mobile phones? Some feedback would be appreciated! thanks!

Yes, they've worked well for me. They're not a big earner by any stretch, but they're one of those small things that just keeps chugging along and over time, they've contributed nicely.

I second their effectiveness as a small additional earner for any site. Certainly worth trying out I would say - but mileage will vary.

Anyone else want to give feedback? Are these ads irritating or intrusive?

I would wait until at least the end of March to make any changes in your ad schema until you see how Google Search Console's Ad Experience Report treats all your pages.

The Mediapartners-Google bot is crawling your pages now and accruing info about your ads. Not a good time to change anything that may interfere with your understanding of that report.

I disagree with keyplyr completely. BAS/Ad Experience Report has nothing to do with MediaPartners-Google as BAS is not specific to Adsense and the bot only ever crawls pages that have AdSense code on them. Moreover, it only impacts the Chrome browser so it is specific to Chrome and my guess that the reviews are being from Chrome directly and apply to all ad-networks and implementations.

As for Page Level I see no harm in using them, they are well implemented and provide an additional means of monetizing mobile users, which tend to be more challenging. I see a higher CTR for the overlays than my regulars ads.

I actually partly agree with keyplyr on this one.

I am currently experimenting with removing adsense units and testing the effects of this on my position in Google SERPS.
So far, the test seems to indicate that the number of ads in the html does impact the position of the the page in the SERPS.

I am still testing, but so far the test indicates that Google's use of measuring ad units as a ranking factor is not very intelligent - I have several ad units, but use .css and media queries to determine which ones are displayed. So far, the test seems to indicate that Google is not taking the css into account, but rather just counting the number of ad units in the html.
Again, more testing is needed.

Oh wow that would be a bad approach, I have 3rd party ads that are only displayed with javascript conditions and my Adsense ads are managed with their responsive rules, they show up only in certain resolutions when space is available.
