Is fixing the position of the ads, bringing undue attention?

Hey guys,

I have placed adsense text links at the top of my pages and given them a position:fixed with css.

Will this be seen as bringing undue attention to my ads?

I don't think so (though it would be nice to see a snapshot) unless you put a flashing arrow that says "click here."

If you mean preventing the AdSense ads from scrolling off the page, this has come up in the past and the answer was: "not allowed".

If the ad block can actually be over top of page content that's a huge violation. A month or two ago someone hacked together a design that mimicked a normal HTML frame. He sensibly submitted it to Google before going live, but that solution was also turned down.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't there a checkbox for "this ad will be displayed on a page that uses frames" or some such? Isn't keeping the ad in the same spot while the page scrolls effectively the same as putting the ad in a different frame? Especially if that frame contains more than just the ad, like nav or something.
