I haven't seen many of the Adsense graphical ads. Does anyone else see them much - either on their sites or others?

I'm not sure you could work out their eCPMs compared to text only, but I'd be curious to see some (well-reasoned) estimates.

Now that you mention it, I haven't seen any AdSense graphical ads on my home page in the last month or so. I did see a few early on, however.

I'd have to believe they didn't work that well. Graphical ads have not done well compared to Text ads on any of our sites. I just think we would be seeing plenty if they worked. IHMO

I see them often, but mostly because I run a movie-related site, and most of the ads are for TV shows ("The OC", "Desperate Housewives", etc.) and movie ads ("DAredevil" is a popular one right now). But because I've changed to square ads (the image ads usually shows up with my skyscrapers), I don't see too much of them anymore, except for the pages where I have skyscrapers.

Hi,

I see them form time to time in the supported formats (banner, leaderboard and narrow tower).

I was seeing them but then I got rid of them, Instead of users seeing 4 ot 5 ads they were only seeing one, and it was the same one over and over again.

My Clickthroughs dropped when I was displaying graphic ads.

When I swithced back to just text ads everything went back.

If an advertiser wants a graphical ad on my site I would be happy to sell him the space. But for google the more advertisors shown the more likely it is something with catch a users eye and make them click it.

I see a graphical ad always on just this one page. Must be something with the keywords.

I like the picture though, it relates to my site, so i let it be. It's a 250x250 as well, they always seem to get the image ads.

I've seen them more than I expected with my leaderboard ads, though they're not too frequent (it's infrequent enough that I feel comfortable leaving it in there for variety's sake, particularly for return visitors).

I'm seeing one on a 468 banner on my site right now. New page, just started running adsense on it. Don't have any CTR/CPM stats on it yet.
We switched a lot of our unused banner space to google ads just recently, but we'd prefer to do ALL graphics if we could as they'd work better in the existing spots.
One comment on the 468 banners... The space that G takes for itself (the 10-12 pixel line across the entire bottom to say "ads by Google") out of the ad space results in a smaller overall area for the advertiser, so this may deter some traditional banner runners, especially since they need to "re-do" all their existing banners they paid their graphics people to make already.

I haven't seen graphical ads on my site at all, but my US visitors see them all the time.
