Was using 250x250 replaced with 300x250, had to adjust template a little to make it fit. Switched it to text only for a couple of days and earnings tanked, changed it back to image/text and earnings returned.
Today I received a message when logging in that switching...

I'll think long and hard about it. My sites aren't, and never will be optimised for AdSense, nor Google for that matter.

No, but it can't hurt to test for a day or two. I resisted the 728x90 for many many years, but got one of those "we predict increased earnings up to XX% if you switch in a 728x90" and I tried it, and darned if they weren't right. Earnings went WAY up.

Hi, netmeg. If you don't mind my asking, where on the page have you had good results with the 728x90 banner? I've tried it in what seem to be the two most usual spots--at the very top of the page, and between the header menu and the content area--and have never had good results, but it's been a while since I last tried it, and I'm in a testing mood.
