Google Adense Tutorial Mobile Devices
When a page does not specify a viewport, mobile browsers will render that page at a fallback width ranging from 800 to 1024 CSS pixels. The page scale factor is adjusted so that the page fits on the display, forcing users to zoom before they can interact with the page.

Configure the Viewport
A viewport controls how a webpage is displayed on a mobile device. Without a viewport, mobile devices will render the page at a typical desktop screen width, scaled to fit the screen. Setting a viewport gives control over the page's width and scaling on different devices. This rule triggers when PageSpeed Insights detects that your page does not specify a viewport, or specifies a viewport that does not adapt to different devices.

Pages optimized to display well on mobile devices should include a meta viewport in the head of the document specifying width=device-width, initial-scale=1.
<meta name=viewport content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
Google Pages Optimized:
  1. Hardware pixel: A physical pixel on the display. For example, an iPhone 5 has a screen with 640 horizontal hardware pixels.
  2. Device-independent pixel (dip): A scaling of device pixels to match a uniform reference pixel at a normal viewing distance, which should be approximately the same size on all devices. An iPhone 5 is 320 dips wide.
  3. CSS pixel: The unit used for page layout controlled by the viewport. Pixel dimensions in styles such as width: 100px are specified in CSS pixels. The ratio of CSS pixels to device independent pixels is the page's scale factor, or zoom.
Meta Viewport Tag
A meta viewport tag gives the browser instructions on how to control the page's dimensions and scaling, and should be included in the document's head.

Fixed-Width Viewport
The viewport can be set to a specific width, such as width=320 or width=1024. While discouraged, this can be a useful stopgap to ensure pages with fixed dimensions display as expected.

Responsive Viewport
Using the meta viewport value width=device-width instructs the page to match the screen's width in device independent pixels. This allows the page to reflow content to match different screen sizes.
Some browsers, including iOS and Windows Phone, will keep the page's width constant when rotating to landscape mode, and zoom rather than reflow to fill the screen. Adding the attribute initial-scale=1 instructs browsers to establish a 1:1 relationship between CSS pixels and device independent pixels regardless of device orientation, and allows the page to take advantage of the full landscape width.

Avoid minimum-scale, maximum-scale, user-scalable It is possible to set the minimum and maximum zoom, or disable the user's ability to zoom the viewport entirely. These options negatively impact accessibility and should generally be avoided.

The meta viewport tag, while broadly supported, is not part of a formal standard. This behavior is being included in CSS as part of the CSS Device Adaptation specification. Until this specification is finalized and widely implemented, authors should continue to use the meta viewport tag for compatibility, either alone or with corresponding viewport styles.

Size Content to Viewport
This rule triggers when PageSpeed Insights detects that the page content does not fit horizontally within the specified viewport size, thus forcing the user to pan horizontally to view all the content.

On both desktop and mobile devices, users are used to scrolling websites vertically but not horizontally, and forcing the user to scroll horizontally or to zoom out in order to see the whole page results in a poor user experience. When developing a mobile site with a meta viewport tag, it easy to accidentally create page content that doesn't quite fit within the specified viewport. For example, an image that is displayed at a width wider than the viewport can cause the viewport to scroll horizontally. You should adjust this content to fit within the width of the viewport, so that the user does not need to scroll horizontally.

Since screen dimensions vary widely between devices (e.g. between phones and tablets, and even between different phones), you should configure the viewport so that your pages render correctly on many different devices. However, since the width (in CSS pixels) of the viewport may vary, your page content should not rely on a particular viewport width to render well.

Avoid setting large absolute CSS widths for page elements (such as div{width:360px;}), since this may cause the element to be too wide for the viewport on a narrower device (e.g. a device with a width of 320 CSS pixels, such as an iPhone). Instead, consider using relative width values, such as width:100%. Similarly, beware of using large absolute positioning values that may cause the element to fall outside the viewport on small screens. If necessary, CSS media queries can be used to apply different styling for small and large screens. This Web Fundamentals article provides further recommendations on how to go about this.

Google Mobile SEO
Let's make sure your site shows up in search results. Here you can learn Google SEO mobile how to configure your site for multiple devices and help search engines understand your site.

Choose your Mobile Configuration
There are three main techniques for implementing a website that can handle view screens of all types and sizes. Here’s a the Google mobile configuration methods:
  1. Responsive Web Design
    • Serves the same HTML code on the same URL regardless of the users’ device (desktop, tablet, mobile, non-visual browser), but can render the display differently (i.e., “respond”) based on the screen size. Responsive design is Google’s recommended design pattern.
  2. Dynamic Serving
    • Uses the same URL regardless of device, but generates a different version of HTML for different device types based on what the server knows about the user’s browser.
  3. Separate URLs
    • Serves different code to each device, and on separate URLs. This configuration tries to detect the users’ device, then redirects to the appropriate page using HTTP redirects along with the Vary HTTP header.
Google does not favor any particular URL format as long as the page(s) and all page assets are accessible to all Googlebot user-agents.

The key points for going mobile
There are key points for going mobile that you should take note of regardless of which configuration you choose to set up.
  1. Signal to Google when a page is formatted for mobile (or has an equivalent page that’s formatted for mobile). This helps Google accurately serve mobile searchers your content in search results.
  2. Keep resources crawlable. Do not use robots.txt to block search engines from accessing critical files on your site that help render the page (including ads). If Googlebot doesn’t have access to a page’s resources, such as CSS, JavaScript, or images, we may not detect that it’s built to display and work well on a mobile browser. In other words, we may not detect that the page is "mobile-friendly," and therefore not properly serve it to mobile searchers.
  3. Avoid common mistakes that frustrate mobile visitors, such as featuring unplayable videos (e.g., Flash video as the page’s significant content). Mobile pages that provide a poor searcher experience can be demoted in rankings or displayed with a warning in mobile search results.
Mobile Devices Type
  1. Mobile: In this article, "mobile" or mobile devices refers to smartphones, such as devices running Android, iPhone, or Windows Phone. Mobile browsers are similar to desktop browsers in that they can render a broad set of the HTML5 specification, although their screen size is smaller and in almost all cases their default orientation is vertical.
  2. Tablets: We consider tablets as devices in their own class, so when we speak of mobile devices, we generally do not include tablets in the definition. Tablets tend to have larger screens, which means that, unless you offer tablet-optimized content, you can assume that users expect to see your site as it would look on a desktop browser rather than on a smartphone browser.
  3. Multimedia phones: These are phones with browsers that are able to render pages coded to meet XHTML standards, support HTML5 Markup, JavaScript/ECMAscript but might not support some of the extension APIs in the HTML5 standard. This generally describes the browser in most 3G-ready phones that are not smartphones.
  4. Feature phones: On these phones, browsers lack the capability to render normal desktop webpages coded using standard HTML. This includes browsers that render only cHTML (iMode), WML, XHTML-MP, etc.
New Google recommendations are geared toward smartphones, but we encourage multimedia and feature phones site owners to follow the same advice where they feel appropriate.

Adsense Placement Tips
The placement of your ads is important. Focus on creating a flow between your content and the ad placements for the ultimate user experience. Consult your analytics data to set events and understand where your users are most receptive. Here is Google Adsense Placement Tips:
  1. When using enhanced features in text ads, decrease accidental clicks by moving the ad units a minimum of 150 pixels away from content
  2. Peek ATF* for a great UX while maximizing revenue potential
  3. Potential eCPMs increase when you swap 320x50 for 320x100 ad units
  4. Anchor social links to make sharing easy
  5. Use the 300x250 ad unit for a potential increase in fill rates and eCPM

Since your Google Grants account is limited to a $1.00 max CPC, you are unable to activate
keywords whose minimum bid is above $1.00 by raising your bid. If you want to activate a keyword that is 'inactive for search', we suggest you first try optimizing your keyword, ad text, and campaign.
For example, consider adding your keyword to your ad text, or changing your campaign targeting options. Please ensure that the keyword is highly targeted and relevant, as it will be difficult to reactivate general keywords through optimization.
