So far today CTR om 160x600 has been cut in half with the new ad design
I've had the most issues with this particular ad format. It's a completely different experience in the context of most of my existing page designs.
Time to switch on enhanced text ad to see it that makes a difference
Hmmm. I was under the impression that the new look only applied to enhanced text ads but guess I'm wrong. Haven't jumped back to plain text ads in awhile (i.e. turning off enhanced features) to see what they look like. Wish G would just outline the exact features of text ads as they are now and what comes with each option (i.e. enhanced vs not enhanced). I keep seeing new stuff and the old ad previews are so off now, they are just laughable. The only sense I can make of it is that they're not done with this yet and won't be talking about the new features in any comprehensive way until they are.
Feel like I'm in a movie named "I-Guinea Pig"
@JCKline - Love the wishful thinking tag. I vote to make it part of the official html specification.
