Hi, I've put a bunch of adsense ads above the fold as per Google's suggestion some time ago (on over 70 pages). Anyhow they suggsted I label my placements with '300x250 ATF' in the description in order to let advertisers know that I've placed medium rectangles above the fold on my site.

Thing is I'm just now beginning to read up on custom channels at the adsense site. Should I have created the custom channel first before including these ads?

Is there way for me to go about this without starting all over again? I did read through their instructions and am kinda lost.

Can anyone make suggestions? Thanks.

Hi, Yes you need to create the custom channel first because the ad code you place in your pages has the 300x250 ATF words in it. But you should be able to create the channel now and do a global replace of your old ad code with the new ad code.

Reading through the thread on the profitability of doing this, it all seems doom and gloom. But I more than doubled my income over night. It happened so instantaneously that I assume it was because the 300 x 250 ad size was more suited to my pages rather than anything else.
