my site consists of a table of content/text 600px wide that scrolls several screens down. i'd like to have google adsense ads run down the full length of the text-table, but the most i can get is three instances of the "120x600 skyscraper".

do you know if there's some way to put in more than three or four skyscraper ad-sets, or some other way to get ads running down the length of a very long page?

thanks!

No more than 3 on one page ;)

The greater the number of ads you show, the lower the average payout for a click will be. I have some pages like the ones you do, but I am happy with one block with five ads on it.

Yes, there are ways to keep the ads displayed on the screen even when the user scrolls down the page. There are various ways to do this for example the use of divs or javascript. As with everything though there can be downsides. Remember of course that although you are only allowed 3 regular ads, you are also allowed an Adlinks ad in addition to these.

Another easier to implement solution is to put one ad at the top of the page, one at the bottom and one in the middle - that way wherever there are (unless it is an extremely long page) they won't miss them.

Put it inside a <div style="position:fixed">, that'll leave it fixed on the screen no matter how far the page is scrolled down, doesn't work for IE6 though, but anything else. Let's see what IE7 brings.

You can lead a visitor to ads, but you can't make them click.

Sites that use JavaScript to make the ads follow you around everywhere you go remind me of being chased through the house by a mosquito.

There isn't a single site I've seen that does this that I've considered to be worth visiting.

In terms of Web design, this is one of the most annoying things you can do.

How desperate do you want to look?

Mininova does this quite efficiently. But I agree with the notion that it's quite annoying.

Run tests. I tested two skyscrapers v. one. Average revenue per day virtually the same (for the reason given above).
