I am trying to find somewhere in the TOS that say you cannot align arrows or bullet points to the left of the adsense block. Does anyone know if this is kosher? I think it may be a greay way to increase CTR.

If you play with fire and get burned please don't come crying later.

I wouldn't do it, just not worth the risk.

Hi there, I'm new to this forum and I thought I'd post an email message I received from Adsense about graphics over ads.

Regards,
Michelle

Reproducing emails from Google is banned... better paraphrase it.

There are simple ways to work with fonts and maintain a natural flow to the site.

Google ads do work if you don't "blast" people with them. Make them visible enough so they are seen by every visitor who enters a page, but blend enough to look cohesive.
