|Link units within Ad units|
I have noticed a number of link units appearing within an ad unit. I've seen them in skyscrapers as well as 336x280.
How do you get rid of them ?
Early tests seem to indicate that it is only affecting the old style code. I am replacing the old code with new, and the link units are no longer appearing within the ad units.
Further tests have shown that it is the old style code that is causing it. I see it on other sites that use the old code. It doesn't happen on all sizes.
If you use the old-style code, then it may be an idea to check. It could be a cause behind a drop in earnings.
How old was the code?
Here is an example...
google_ad_client = "pub-0000000000000000";
google_ad_width = 250;
google_ad_height = 250;
google_ad_format = "250x250_as";
google_ad_type = "text_image";
google_ad_channel = "1234567890";
google_color_border = "CACD5A";
google_color_bg = "040404";
google_color_link = "FDFD03";
google_color_text = "CACD5A";
google_color_url = "FFFFCC";//--></script>
BTW, this is happening in IE6 (don't know about later versions.) Everything looks normal in Firefox, so if you are checking with that, you won't see it.
Sometimes I really wish we could see what posters were talking about with issues like this.
I wonder if this is link units or site links [support.google.com]?
Another link [adwords.blogspot.com...]
Neither of those, Ken_b
I am talking about adsense, not serps.
Think of a 336 x280 ad unit.
Instead of getting 4 adverts, I see 3 adverts and 3 (sometimes 4) link units where the last advert should be.
Same thing for a wide skyscraper:
Only happens with old code and IE6 (no idea of later versions).
Ah, that is an old school post.
So that is what you see?
I do see it... on my site and others with the old-style code, but I am replacing my code with the new style (which doesn't produce adverts like that).
