Google's ads are discreet ..they are not "in your face"..they are not the first thing that hits you or "users" when you or "users" go to Google search page ( there are no ads on it ) ..and they are not the thing that hits you or "users" most about the serps returned for any search..
In my post above, I replied to this with "Which is why I made the point that website owners need to compromise. I agree that in your face ads need to be pulled back."
I should have added, however, that indeed, Google's ads at the very top of the SERPs before any of the listings are in fact in your face. They place their ads above the fold, above the content. So really...I can't imagine anything more in your face than that, short of a popup.
