No Mobile Version of Your Site? There’s a Mobile Ad for That

AdMob now offers mobile ads for non-mobile sites.

It’s called the Adaptive Mobile Ad Unit. The ad automatically scales, even when users scale to view desktop versions of websites on their mobile browsers.

The ad appears – and stays – at the top of the page. Initially, this is only being rolled out for iPhone traffic.

A demo of the ad can be found by visiting TapTap.net on the mobile Safari browser on an iPhone. Here’s a screenshot:

Download the code by signing into your AdMob account, creating a new site and selecting “iPhone Web.”
