This time videos will help you understand a little bit more regarding your advertisement units and how you will be able to control them. The first video will help you understand more about the high performing ad units.

The units allow users to show advertisements in a much more neatly and organized manner. For example, the high performing units will allow the user to read the ads better and also will help the advertiser display more advertisements per unit. The most common high performing measurements are:

Wide skyscraper = 160×600
Medium Rectangle = 300×250
Leaderboard = 70.28×90

It is important to use such measurements because not only will they look much nicer on the web but top quality advertisers are only using such high performing units. These high performance units make a difference for the design and also the general quality of your website.
