Is there anything to the rumor that Google is considering a 7 as option?

Would you like some content with your ads, monsieur?

I have seen one site with a skyscraper displaying 7 ads.
It's on a site where Google has beta tested new ad formats before. Look great. Smaller fonts used and (at least in its beta form) withoug the 'Ads by Google' part.

First reported here:
[webmasterworld.com...]

But I now realize I forgot to say that it had 7 ads in it.

So I'm not alone in hearing about this.

I'd like to see it as a taller skyscrpage with the usual size font. It would be nice for longer webpages. I think better than doing two ads.

I'm not so sure about the one you saw that was the same height but with smaller text.

doubt it

It wouldn't surprise me a bit, considering that they already let publishers display far more than seven ads on a page (by using multiple ad units).

AdBrite has a seven ad skyscraper that looks identical to the AdSense skyscaper in style, layout, font and color scheme (the default AdSense color scheme). This could be what you are seeing, as I've noticed a few of them recently.

I have seen this today. Google unit with 7 ads without "Ads by Google" part. But it is possible that this is premium publisher option.

Sitemeter has been running these 7 ad/smaller font banners for the last few weeks. And no "Ads by Google" in them, which would be great if they'd let the rest of us in on the action.

which ad size will show 7 ads?

I've triple stacked 336x280 (12 ads in total) above the fold with vg results. I think too much is put on the "Ads by Google" text not being there. If you site is content specific, your G ads will be relevant thus offering your visitor interesting contextual ads and possbily good links to visit. Offer quality content, you'll receive quality G ads.

What I meant was it seems many people think that not having "Ads by Google" will improve their CT's.

How do you stack those big rectangular things above the fold? Vertically? Side-by-side?

Sit one right on top of the other.

Larger meaning wider or taller? The last meeting I had with them I made it a suggestion. They took it into consideration but do not want too many ad formats out there.

bishop, Doesn't your triple ads at the top cover push much of your good content below the fold. It seems to me that a true content site wants to have the visitor first notice there is quality content then to notice the ads.

A taller skyscraper with more ads appeals to me as it can be put in the side column and not detract from the content.

annej,
I've tried taht setup of a skyscraper in both left and right margins. However, stacking the ads doubles-triples my CT's so I can't argue with that. Besides, from the first visit viewers know the layout of the site. Ads appear on the top, content in below. Its up to them to choose.

shoot, I just wrote a long message and it didn't go through. I hate that!

Bsically I was writing was that the earlier messages I read on this forum were saying that more than one ad hurt your earnings. But I recently tried three skyscraper ads on my blog pages and they are doing much better than one. I think people like the more extended choice of ads to choose from. They are more likely to find something they are really interested in.

Exactly my point. :-) Though you should realize that offering more ad links will dilute yoru stats. But..if you are earning more revenue that's what matters in the end.

three skyscraper ads on my blog pages

Can you do that nowdays? I still haven't been able to interpretate the conditions:

Up to three ad units may be displayed on each Web site page, but no ad unit shall contain any advertisement in common with any other ad unit. Serving two or more identical ads on a single page constitutes double-serving, which Google does not support.
[google.com...]

In the policies it sounds as if you place three identical ads on the page and two identical advertisments show up, it's your fault...?

I don't see how G could blame you for what they put in their ads.

I have to agree with swoop on this one. Its completely in G's control what ads appear. I've had a leaderboard, a large rectangle and a wide skyscraper on the same page and have seen 1-2 same links appearing in 2 of the 3 boxes. So having 3 large rectangles (irregardless of setup) is no different. Sometimes I see duplicates sometimes not. Other times only 1 box will appear because my setup is a color to match my background rather than have alternate (non-relevant) ads appear.

i like one large ad block
rather than staggering 2 or 3 ad blocks together

Vrindavan,
White out all of the borders and background, then insert your blocks in a table. Then color your table to suit your needs.

I did see this 7 ad skyscraper on a premium publisher though.
