How to Setup Responsive Ads Using The Advanced Ads Size Mapping Feature

Advanced Ads is a WordPress ad implementation plugin that has highly sophisticated features, making it the best tool for publishers looking for a plugin that gives them flexibility in ad implementation while adhering to policies.

Size Mapping is one of those features that ensure no inappropriate ad sizes are served on any device, at any given time. It makes ad implementation a lot easier because you won’t have to worry about targeting or getting penalized for accidental clicks due to extremely large ads or experience a drop in revenue due to extremely small ads relative to the screen size.
