New adsense images within ad units
new adsense beta test

 7:46 pm on Jun 29, 2006 (gmt 0)

Adsense has launched new adsense beta test where an image would take the place of an ad within an adsense ad unit.

Since many publishers are using images near by ad unit and found success, Google will probably launch something new. Images appear randomly (generic, related to the ads), and they are not choosen by advertisers.

Does someone hear anything more about this?

"take the place of an ad" how?
Image ads or Christmas type seasonal background images?

I saw one with a normal photo of a real guy pointing a finger at me!

I saw this on my web site this morning, wasn't sure what it was, looked like two golden eggs. It does draw attention to the ads, I was so tempted to click on the image, but of course I didn't :)

Could be promising, although it does introduce a new element into the design of the site that I didn't intend to be there. If it increases CTR/ROI enough, it may be worth it. I wonder also, will it be a novelty that eventually fades as visitors get used to it?

They look pretty odd. I noticed one on my site earlier today. Basically looked like a "gift wrapping" background. Definately stood out like a sore thumb.

Unless they turn out to really boost revenue I'd just as soon have this little experiment gone.

Here's an example:

Thanks for the image. Looks pretty cool, I think. Does anyone know if these pictures are only to appear on the 728x90 ads or have you seen them on other formats such as the wide skyscraper?

We have an earlier discussion of this too.

"I saw one with a normal photo of a real guy pointing a finger at me!"

That was a Google employee, just watching you to make sure you didn't click on any of your site's ads.

He probably wouldn't point and laugh so much if you put some clothes on.
