I'm still flabbergasted that you can't see most of the site without registering.
I'm not, go to Google news and click on all the top story links. You'll find that you can't even see a good number of the articles being linked to by Google without registering, they are behind paywalls. About as useful as a brick in my wallet.
I'm still flabbergasted that they would "feature" a site which has a special adsense account capable of creating units the average joe cannot access, like the link units shoved mid content. That's just deceptive in my opinion, the results are meaningless to 99% of publishers as a result.
I count 5 ad units as well, not the allowed 3 standard + 3 link unit + 2 search that 99% are limited to. This is deja vu of "askthebuilder" site which was once their poster child featured sites with 8 text/image units + 2 search boxes + 3 link units(the owner now loathes adsense, apparently).
- Header 728x90
- Sidebar Top 300x250
- Sidebar Bottom 300x250
- Center page 800x90 text special unit
- Bottom of page 800x90 special unit
Why even feature it when 99% of publishers don't have special units and can't post 5 of them anyway?
