Fluid is a native ad size recommended by Google. It has no definite size and automatically adjusts according to the inventory dimensions. It allows flexibility in customizing an ad and works seamlessly with responsive ad tags. It has been available in Ad Exchange for quite some time and has been getting high coverage and eCPMs contributing to the increase of a site’s overall performance.
