"Enhancements" to Text Ads

 8:23 pm on Dec 3, 2012 (gmt 0)

Hey, remember those arrows we were all talking about a while ago that Google was testing and we all hated?

Well, get used to 'em. We are about to be "enhanced".

You'll notice a new clickable arrow icon, as well as slight optimizations to font size, spacing and text layout. These enhancements are among the largest that we have made to text ads, and our experiments indicate an uplift in clicks across publishers on the Google Display Network.


(I do not see them on my own sites as yet)

CTR up for me which resulted in a very good day financially yesterday.

I'm seeing these all over my site now using FF.

These hideous arrows are killing my CTR.

These hideous arrows are killing my CTR.

Not sure if it's these arrows or not, but my CTR so far today is almost non-existant. Not quite 0, but pretty close.

Hopefully stats are just stuck. Traffic/pageview numbers look normal.

Hey if the arrows make me more money, then great. Personally they don't bother me.

I'm not crazy about the way they look on my sites, but I can live with them. However I have been noticing them on other sites who do a lot more ad styling than I do (I usually don't bother with borders or backgrounds; I just mess with colors) and there are now some butt ugly ads out there on mainstream sites.

CTR significantly up for me - nice xmas present... I don't check my Adsense account too often, and was slightly scared when i saw the figures, and then checked my pages - particularly worried because i would have thought such "arrows" to be deceptive to visitors... Well, it's Google's choice, not mine, and right now, i can't complain..
