But today we are talking about making our AdSense ad units into responsive ad units so that people on different gadgets can always view your website and advertisements more accurately.

Earlier also people have already experimented on this thing and obviously they have created responsive ad designs but now we are talking about official update from Google which is much more stable and legal to be applied, yes now you do not worry about manipulating the code unless its under terms.

Official Responsive AdSense Ad Units

adsense-ad-unitsWell now if you visit your AdSense account you will see that under New Ads creation wizard you will find another head called "Other - Responsive" so now under this one you have once simple ads unit that’s responsive and will work on the CSS base, which you need to create.

So now this ad unit is till in BETA testing more but it will like a charm. Now this code is already Asynchronous Loading enabled so you will not see that two code choosing option. Now as you choose the code you will get your code somewhat like below including some default @media tags for responsive CSS structure, but will need to manipulate these codes according to your website's requirement.

Note Below code is only for demonstration purpose and it will not work for your website, you need to create your personal ad code right from your account.

.hu-responsive-ad { width: 320px; height: 50px; }
@media(min-width: 500px) { .hu-responsive-ad { width: 468px; height: 60px; } }
@media(min-width: 800px) { .hu-responsive-ad { width: 728px; height: 90px; } }
<script async src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script>
<!-- HU Responsive Ad -->
<ins class="adsbygoogle hu-responsive-ad"
(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So now you can add this code to wherever you want  responsive ad design but make sure you you customize the @media tags according to your website, else it won’t work. So now possible it’s a big step by AdSense team bringing more and more option for their loyal publisher to gain income, well now its your time to coop up with them & apply it.
