About image ads on the Display Network

The Display Network plays host to a huge variety of ad formats and sizes. Some sizes and formats perform better than others, and it's best to experiment with multiple ad types and messages. Bear in mind that your ads are eligible to appear on mobile devices by default, so this article covers information about mobile Display ads too.

Interstitial image ads

These are full-screen ads that tend to have higher click-through rates than banner ads, but may have a higher CPC. These appear as someone moves between screens or pages in an app.

  • Sizes for mobile phones: 300 x 250, 320 x 480 and 480 x 320.
  • Sizes for tablets: 1024 x 768 and 768 x 1024.

Banner image ads

Banner ads appear as a small strip or “banner” across the top of an app page or screen. They’re the most commonly used ad format for mobile. You can upload double-sized images (for example, a 640 x 100 image for a 320 x 50 ad slot) for high-resolution display devices. We’ll auto-adjust the image based on the device’s pixel density.

  • Sizes for mobile phones and tablets: 320 x 50, 468 x 60, 728 x 90 and 300 x 250.

What it looks like
