New look of Adwords...

Getting larger? Perhaps for effectiveness?

I dropped my AdWords program months ago... But today noticed that adwords is extending the width of the adword boxes so they come closer to the search results.

Has anyone running an Adwords account noticed any positive benefits from this so far?

It's hard to judge with the changes to AdWords last month.
Is there info about the change in size anywhere on Google.com?

I cannot find anything on the sizing changes, but have noticed they are back to normal size.

It appeared only within their DB updating process a week or so back.

Tip Dept.

The last line in the Google adword can be replaced with a nice long bold line of advertsing instead of the URL. A long line there (that's the longest field) will

your ad out to the full margins.

Nell, you are so clever ;) Have you tried this? I can't see why losing the visual link information would be a problem since they only need click on the banner. I could be wrong though. Will Google let this fly?

(btw, I absolutely love your stuff!)

WELL, something went wrong :(
We tested it on an ad that helps us gross $20 per hour.

Well, it either worked for a very short period of time for someone or maybe it gets by on a minor term.... Mike's term of .35 to .41 is probably a more popular one and more likely to get caught (?)

My clickthrough rate jamped from 1% (yesterday) to more than 10% (today)with the same campains.
the number of impressions decreased sharply.
is there any tricks behind it?

how can G manage that?

Campaign back online

Shows 16% CTR but it is too short a sample to tell at this point.
