And yes, I blame the stupid new text ad designs 100% for the drop.
And G isn't done with their monkey-business yet either. Now I'm seeing panels in leaderboards. They are stacking two ads into panels in 728x90 which is kind of crazy. The upside is (if there is one) that when two or three ads appear in a leaderboard, the title's font size gets smaller. All this is doing though is making the look of a given page layout even more unpredictable. I'm pretty convinced that the only solution to the visual madness these ads can create is to definitively make these things stand alone in their own designated space in your page design.
