How to Add Google Ads to a Mobile Web Site

In the last few months I've had several questions from 51Degrees.mobi Framework users asking how to implement google adverts on their web sites. Google have a very simple piece of javascript that can be used with high end phones. However this won't work on all phones, and as those familiar with 51Degrees.mobi will know we don't like to exclude people because they don't have the high end phones. The ASP provided for all phones won't work in ASP.NET and requires some tweaking to get working. This blog explains how to use Google AdSense and an ASP.NET user control to get Google Ads on a web page in minutes.

51Degrees.mobi Mobile Detection Outside of IIS

Author: Anonym

51Degrees.mobi has a proven record of fast, reliable detection on ASP.NET website but it has always been restricted to environments within IIS. The 1.2 release has now changed this and detection can now be used offline outside of IIS from any .NET code. To show how, I have made two example projects showing local based detection; a lightweight command line implementation, and a slightly more advanced GUI driven based version.

E-Mail and Text Messaging - How to Support Mobile Devices?

Ensuring customers can easily read and act on the content sent to them via email or text message is becoming increasingly important to businesses. According to our Mobile Analytics service 7.2% of all web requests in the United States in May 2011 were from mobile phones or tablets. An email designed for a desktop or laptop email client such as Outlook, or a browser based e-mail service like Hotmail or Gmail won’t look very nice when viewed on the small screen of even the most high end smartphone. There’s simply too much content, pictures and links.
