Extra Wide adverts on mobile?

I get it occasionally on a Samsung S10+ using their internet browser. I thought it has something to do with screen rotation I think as that's when it happens for me.

That would be normal, when you change the orientation of your screen from landscape to portrait and will clear when you load the next page.


I am fairly sure I have identified how these are getting in. Google serve the vast majority of the adverts on here, but Amazon bid for about 3 ads in every 200 served - this included both ads directly from Amazon, and also some they sell on. So I don't think its a coincidence that several of the examples people have sent are actually advertising Amazon products. They are obviously sending the wrong size ads to some mobile devices.

I have raised this as an issue with them, but obviously its hard to demonstrate/prove when it is such a small percentage of the adverts. I have yet to see one myself!

Please keep posting examples and details of your setup on this thread if you continue to see them. The more evidence and examples I have the better.
