The end of the year is approaching and before we say goodbye to 2014, we'd like to recap all the AdSense product enhancements launched this year.Multi-screen additions: Responsive ad units
can help you provide a great ad experience for users on every screen (i.e., computers, phones, tablets) if you have a responsively designed website. To make your code simpler and save you time and effort, our responsive ad code automatically adapts the ad unit size to your page layout.
