Link unit font size
Why is the font so huge?

Hi guys. Long time, no see.

The font on my link units is huge, and it doesn't use the "small" size specified in my ad style. I've tried the 200x90 and 120x90 link units and both of them look like they are 14pt. When I use the same ad style on normal text ads, the small font size appears correctly.

Am I the only one experiencing this?

I haven't really noticed it, but you should be able to add your own css to change how it looks, if not in your adsense settings, then you could simple add it to your own style sheet using important! to override googles style for the font size.

Are you sure about that? I was under the impression that you could not affect AdSense with your own CSS.

You aren't allowed to change the AdSense CSS anywhere but the AdSense settings.

Thanks StoutFiles, that's what I thought.

Why is the font so huge on the link units, and why does it not obey the AdSense ad style? It seems like a bug.

Heh, it's not a bug, it's a test. Google lets you style things however you like, unless they think for some reason that their way will earn more, in which case they will ignore your styles and implement theirs.

It is what it is.

Not a good idea.

@StoutFiles I know your not meant to but I'm sure you still can? I use to do it on some of my sites just because if I changed something on my site it was faster to simply change the ads styling with the same css rather then having to change it in two different places.

I know google adsense might not like this, but its not like I was doing anything bad! For example I would do something like:
myText, adText{color:#000000;font-size:10px;} etc etc

Which use to work just fine and had no impact on the ads performance etc so I can't see why that would be a problem if it still works?
