No More Sideways Scrolling < > ?

Is there such a dearth of inventory in my widget sector that there are not enough to show more ads?

No wonder no one's clicking.

I'm in construction, anyone else seeing this?

I don't think they're doing the sideways scrolling anymore, at least not in the ad units I'm running. And I know there are plenty of ads.

Checked a few of my sites, I don't see it anymore.

Glad they're gone. I never liked them.

Let's hope they're gone forever!

I wonder if this means no more showing one text ad in a 300x250 when there are a dozen more hiding behind the arrows?

I can't believe anyone actually ever used them - who goes to a site to browse the ads? And even if they did, it was hardly intuitive.

Ken_b, I think you'll still see one ad showing in a 300x250 if the advertisers outbid the total of the next four ads. Could be wrong, but I still see em now and then, and I know there's lots of ads available.

The scroll arrows were a bad idea, and I'm sure G could see there lack of use and canned it. I should be about the bid for top, not allowing someone to browse and click less paying ads.

Just us web publishers, they were useful for checking to see how many advertisers were bidding for an ad slot.

Actually I have seen users do this on some of my sites generating some 20-25 clicks in one visit and validated by Google when I queried them.

Ahhh...the good old days.
