I just ran across a blog that had AdLinks at the bottom, but in a format I hadn't seen before - staggered. Here's a screen shot of what I'm talking about <snip>

The code looks like this (the line in question is google_ad_format = "468x15_0ads_al";):

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "pub-#*$!#*$!";
google_ad_width = 468;
google_ad_height = 60;
google_ad_format = "468x15_0ads_al";
google_ad_channel ="#*$!xx";
google_color_border = "FFFFFF";
google_color_bg = "FFFFFF";
google_color_link = "0000FF";
google_color_url = "0000CC";
google_color_text = "000000";
//--></script>
<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">
</script>

I don't seem to have this available in my menu choices, anybody else?

That's simply the 468 x 15 adlink unit set to 4 links per unit.

Only two links shown can be a matter of inventory, the algo, a Google test. Who knows? But there's nothing really unusual here.

PS: You might want to ditch the link.

Nope it's not.
These staggered AdLinks are appearing in a 468x60 block:

Typical 468x60 code looks like this:
google_ad_width = 468;
google_ad_height = 60;
google_ad_format = "468x60_as";

This code is different, and not in my menu:
google_ad_width = 468;
google_ad_height = 60;
google_ad_format = "468x15_0ads_al";

> PS: You might want to ditch the link.

Why? It's to Imageshack (not anything personal).

I missed the "google_ad_height = 60;". 468 x 60 is an Ad Unit, there is no Ad Link equivalent. Looks like somebody edited to code by hand to change it from an Ad Unit to Ad Links and goofed.

Well if it's a "goof" - it's an interesting effect nonetheless. Makes a convenient visual disconnect from Ads by Google and the links. Also, the Web site I saw this on is a major name in the SE community, so I'm not sure I'm convinced it's an accident on his part (though I guess that's a possibility).

This is a special Ad Links option that is available by permission only to a select number of publishers. Using this code without permission is against the terms.

Can you please elaborate on this? Do you know if this is an "invite-only" from Google or can it be had by publishers (assuming they meet whatever "select" means) by request? If by request, how does one go about asking for it?

Thanks Jen.

While I've never seen this particular code scheme before, I do know that Google allows some, "custom" ads to display on certain sites.

For example, some of the, "privileged" businesses that display Adsense ads, have formats that you won't see when you log into your Adsense account and build your links.

By invitation only, or on consultation by larger publishers with their account rep.

OK, thanks Jen. Wonder what other AdSense format "goodies" are floating around for the elite few - anybody know?
