Mobile display ads sizes

Hi everyone

 

I was quite sure that if you upload standard display ads in formats specified here: https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/176108?hl=en

(the ones not specified ad "mobile")

those ads would "shrink" in order to fit and thus get impressions also on smartphones and tablets.

Actually, I do have plenty of such ads (for example: 728x90, 300x250) that have been shown on such devices.

 

But then, I don´t get why or what the great benefit would be to create ads in formats specified as "mobile banner" on page referred above or on this page: https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/176117?hl=en

I think the major benefit is that the mobile banner ad will be given preference over standard banner ads (desktops) when shows on Mobile devices.

Hi David,
To add to Ahmed's answer - I think another benefit of having mobile specific Ads is that they'll render better, and probably serve more Impressions, when sites are optimized specifically for mobile phones and tablets.

I wonder...

Funny enogh, I´ve got one campaign, only targeting mobile ad tablet (it´s an app-download campaign) that has ads in multiple formats. Amongst them 300x250, 320 x 480 and (mobile ad formats) but of 145 000 impressions, the only ad that have had any impressions is 728 x 90.

It´s also a bit confusing that this page: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1722057?hl=en
only includes a few formats that actually can show in tablets and mobiles.
