Placing 300x600 ads on mobile responsive theme

Hi,

I want to ask something about adsense policy, is it allowed to put 300x600 ad size on mobile responsive theme?. Actually, I'd like to show the text ads, cause it can contain some ads in one unit. If it's possible, I'm going to replace my 300x250 as it has bad performance. Thanks

Bad performance? How about policy violation? You can't place a 300 X 600 ad unit on a mobile screen, and if you use a responsive ad unit, it will not be a 300 X 600 ad unit on a mobile screen unless you use the advanced ad code. 

Placing large ad units on mobile screens isn't allowed.

Thanks to remind me. I did searching for this one, but I didn't get it, that's why I ask here first.

Hi,
there is no such rule that states... one cant place 300x600 ad unit on mobile screen. If you find any such link from google policies, provide it here

AdSense ads have to fit the screen size, and can't be the only thing on the page in the viewport. A 300 X 600 ad unit would essentially be the only thing on the page on a mobile.

Yes, this would be considered a policy violation as it falls under our ad placement policies for site layout that pushes content below the fold. This implementation would take up too much space with ads on a mobile optimized site's first view screen and provide a poor experience to users. Always try to think of the user experience on your site — this will help ensure that your users continue to visit.

As long as the main content stays above the fold and doesn't affect the user experience, you could consider implementing a 320x100 as an alternative. Please refer to our policy on ad limits for more information.


And

 Mobile implementations: The above ad limits also apply to mobile sites. In addition, two or more AdSense ads may not appear on the screen at the same time on a mobile site. Publishers with sites using responsive website should consider that ad units may shift into non-compliant positions as the site scales across different devices.

So even if you placed one of those sized ad units below the fold, it wouldn't fit and could conceivable be violating policies by having part of the ad cut off.

Mobile implementations: Publishers should ensure that their mobile site layouts do not cause ads to push the page content below the fold. For this reason, we don’t allow 300x250 ad units (or larger) above the fold on mobile as this layout requires the user to scroll down to view site content. To ensure a good user experience, the site content should be clear and accessible above the fold. We would therefore encourage publishers to implement smaller ad units for above the fold placements on mobile sites. See our optimization guide for the mobile Web for tips on where to place your ads.
