    You need to resize the ads from the header. If you don't resize them, they break the margins of the page. It's looks ugly and anoying for the visitors.

    I have now reduced the size of the ads which were disaplying in the header to 300 x 100 but that just looks so small after testing in on mobile device. i have also noticed that the amount i was making has now dropped by 90%. need to start looking for other ways of making money now

    You are not allowed to place large ad units above the fold for mobile. The best optimization here is to use a responsive rectangle unit (a normal responsive ad unit with edited code: data-ad-format="rectangle" instead of auto). That way google will automatically display optimal size for mobile (300x100) and the largest possible ad for your template on desktop (assuming you are using a responsive "mobile friendly" design ofc).

    Hello, and sorry for digging out this old post.
    I`ve got this warning from ad$3nce today, same as the OP above, see picture. "
    Adsense violation Large ads above the fold on mobile
    "

    My ads are placed in this order.
    Upper ad: Responsive
    2nd, middle ad: 300x600
    Bottom ad: 336x280

    So what am i going to do is to make my ads smaller and wont show two ads on mobile screen.

    Any further advice please, I dont want my main site to be hammered.
    Sry my english.
