Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
To be specific, almost all of my pages are black text on white backgrounds with blue links. What I had originally were highly contrasting ad colors, such as dark blue background with white text. Then I changed all the ads to light-grey border, white background, and blue links, so they look virtually like regular content. I am even considering changing the font of my website to match the Adsense font.
Unfortunately, although CTR was 20% higher, average earnings per day were 17% lower for the same period. I think this is due to other factors though, like declining relevance of the content in my pages, declining advertising expenditures, and perhaps temporary traffic spikes to high revenue pages during the prior period.
