AdSense for mobile launches in Beta

Just a quick update rather than a post, a feature high up on the request list for some has now come to fruition. I received an email tonight to say that I was invited to test out Adsense for Mobile.

What is Adsense for mobile?
Well it kind of does what it says on the tin, Adsense for mobile allows publishers to place adsense contextual advertising on website designed for mobile (cell) phones to monetise that traffic.

We have successfully conducted initial testing on the product and today, we’d like to invite you to try AdSense for mobile on your mobile website.

  1. Excellent. I wonder if this will help boost mobile website content as more people will now develop if they can monetize their mobile content more. It has got me thinking of ideas to utilize the ads when available.

  2. Yeah. I think it’s going to be great because we already have the iPhone and other big screen mobile phones for internet access.

  3. There’s hardly enough space for content on those tiny screens……wonder whether ads are really plausible, and if yes, how well readers will accept them.

  4. So, the next step will be free voice calls if you click an Adsense link on your mobile phone.

  5. What will Google think of next? After I saw the high speed DSL via toilet bowl I thought I’d seen it all. Google has more creativity in their pointer finger than Yahoo or MSN.

  6. I think it would be cool to have adsense for mobile-made websites.
    Great post guys

  7. The only risk is annoying mobile ads inhibiting the already small mobile screen… Google with their sky high stock price wouldn’t want to create a backlash with their fanbase/advertisers, promoting annoying ads with their logo. On the other side of the coin… Moving into the mobile ad space could really provide an economic motivation for developers to create quality content for the end user.

  8. adsense market will getting bigger and more money for publisher and advertiser.there will also lots of opportunity for in mobile site dev market especially for adsense web site.

  9. How To Do Anything says:

    Can this be used on any website, or do I need a .mobi version for mobile surfers? I am not very clear on this. Any input would be appreciated.

  10. Now a year later, I wonder how mobile Adsense has performed for content producers? I have still not jumped on board, but, with the proliferation of smartphones and the popularity of the iPhone, I may have to!

  11. finding info on the performance of mobile adsense in not easy and I don’t think that it will provide a good return on investment

  12. I think that adsense will have to stretch considetrably to adapt to mobile browsing and to provide advertizing for products that are likely to be purchased from a mobile phone.

  13. I think ads will need to adapt considerably both in size and content, the products people would more likely buy on a mobile phone are not necessarily the same they would buy on a computer screen.

  14. So, Its three years down now and adsense for mobile is a big hit

  15. with the launch of a new generation of smartphones such as the i phone 4 and dell streak it will be interesting to see how things change in the next few years, my bet is we will be looking back at this type of thing as if it were stone age technology.

  16. I am curious to see what the click through rate will be like.I am skeptical that adsense for mobile will actually work.

  17. Anyone got a screenshot for this? Depending on how this interface looks I might make a new campaign just for it.
