|Is there any way we could convince Google to allow publishers to select whether they want these nasty oooooooooooooooo? |
I know how to get rid of it - remove AdSense.
Removing Google is not an option - YPN has too poor targeting and too low payout.
However I would give everything to get rid of these oooo - they make me crazy.
Can't be removed.
I think most users have seen it enough times that they aren't fazed by it (if they still notice it all).

Just not crazy enough to remove adsense from the site altoghether though ;)
On my monitor, I see:
"Ads by Gooooogle
"Ads by Gooooooooooogle"
Kinitz, do you have a wide-screen display?
Long as G pays my bills they can put whatever they wish.
The CPM ads running on my site just say Ads by Google, not Ads by Goooooogle(with 6 o's). But, I don't believe there is a way to only run CPM ads.

Easy with that! ....we all remember the similar links fiasco or whatever it was called where Google put in a link for similar search terms.
Personally I would prefer to see just ads by Google but I have seen the ads so much I am not as bothered by it as I was. Mind you I am not sure that is the same for all internet users but that is G's problem (if it is a problem at all) not mine.
While probably against AdSense TOS, you could use a div with css positioning to cover up the old Ads by Goooooooogle with a non-child like Ads by Google, same font, link, etc.
michaelhood, this is possibly the most ridiculous way to get kicked by google, but at least you will get rid of the oooooos too then.
The "Ads By Goooooooooooogle" legend is simply a casual insult to AdSense customers. I see it as a useful reminder to not get too cosy with Google. To them I am less than insignificant.
It should be a non-issue to surfers by now. Everyone has it and everyone has seen it.
|It seriously disturbs me and destroys design |
I feel you have a bigger problem than a few "oooooo" if it is this disconcerting to you...
may be encouraging its customers to earn in millions

I think they simply get way more clicks on Goooooogle vs. Google.
I simply can't understand why anyone would object to "Goooooogle". I've always just assumed it's marketing trademark recognition, as that's what "Google" looks like on the bottom of Google SERPs.
I put Adsense on my sites because I trust Google, and I assume my users do too. Anything that indicates the ad is from "trustable Google" is to me a good thing. The "Goooooogle" name in the ads which reminds my users of how it looks in the SERPs can only be good.
Kudos to the marketing guy at Google who thought of putting "Ads by Goooooogle" in the text ads. It's a very simple, small thing, but it helps us Adsense publishers!
