AdSense for Cell Phones

I’ve justed logged into my AdSense () account today to check my stats from yesterday, and I see that they are now offering people the opportunity to display ads for people who publish websites to mobile phones.

AdSense Mobile

The AdSense Mobile option shows up as a New Product (sorry no screenshot as I am writing this via my blackberry) . You are allowed to display one ad per mobile page it says. There are two options for the ads, either a single or a double ad unit. It can display ads if your site is using one of the following :

  • wml (WAP 1.x)
  • xhtml (WAP 2.0)
  • chtml

This is great for those of you who have websites which have a high mobile phone visitor rate. If don’t see this straight away in your AdSense control center, just wait a day or so, as google normally rolls these things out over a period of a few days.

Edit : Here is a screen shot !

  1. interesting would this even be worth it? like how much money can you actualy make from mobile adsense.

  2. I’m sure they have a lower CTR, so payments would be higher. I don’t publish anything for cell phones right now, but I might see if I could do something with a blog available over it. And get a nice .mobi domain.

  3. I’ve been wanting to create a site specifically for mobiles but haven’t gotten around to it. Many phones now are starting to show regular sites anyhow, so don’t know if it is really worth the time atm.

    I love what Google did with this though, will give at least some incentive (other than for visitors/branding) to create one.
