I'm sure leaderboards used to omit the URLs when they were full (had four ads). And that's what the example on [www2.google.com...] shows.
But now I'm seeing 4-ad leaderboards with the URL - is this new, or did I just miss it before?

I see the same thing. URLs in the leaderboard! (4 ads). This is what I have waited for a long time.

I don't like it. Hope it's a temporary test.

Without the vertical dividers now too....looks ugly.

Yes, too cluttered. There really isn't enough space to stick the url in there like that..

URLS are for branding campaigns. Poorly written ad copy combined with high bids generates lots of name exposure for next to no money.

Not seeing URLs in the 4-ad leaderboards right now. Hope it's permanent.

After 5 day testing, the URLs in leaderboards are off. It seens the old layout is working better. Initially I like the addition but I had changed my mind after I noticed the negative effects on my earnings in the last 4 days.

4-ad leaderboards have been displaying the URLs again over the past few days. Hoping once again that this isn't permanent.
