New AdSense Arrows shift ads up and down New test on our site or an old feature I've missed? Undead Hunter msg:3570212 2:13 am on Feb 9, 2008 (gmt 0) Is anyone else seeing this?
It's two arrows by the Ads By Google symbol. Press them, the ads "go up", and refresh with NEW ads.
I noticed our CPM dropped a few days ago - but its back the past 3 - I have to wonder if they were testing this, and maybe people were using it and selecting lower paying ads?
I don't really surf my own site that much!

I had it on mine, and the arrows did allow you to rotate the ad selection.
Kind of interesting, but I don't know if it would work with a lot of sites. The ads were all relevant, but I just don't see people scrolling through ads.
But you know, Google knows what they are doing, so I'll wait and see.
This was on a 250x250 btw.

They appear to be testing this and I have a feeling they will find it's rarely used. iTunage msg:3570273 5:49 am on Feb 9, 2008 (gmt 0)
I first saw these about a month ago and see them sporadically at the moment. I agree with annej that it's not likely to be used much. Gian04 msg:3570295 7:56 am on Feb 9, 2008 (gmt 0)

I've had them on my sites for a while now however I've not seen them for a few days and personally I feel they look good, work well and are more aesthetically pleasing than AdLinks and they seem to be very fast.
I only use one Leaderboard and one AdLinks unit.
