Small and discreet

I just saw an AdSense search box format I've never seen before.

It is structured like this:


Ads by Google View ads about __________ #*$!


The color of the text of the first three words is slightly different from the color of the words "View ads about"

Where I put the straight line there is a small input box and where I put the #*$! there is a small discreet icon.

The Google logo or the word "Search" don't appear anywhere. This could fit in nicely on a lot of pages.

And when you do a search, the landing page is also uncluttered.

Is this new?

In case someone suggests this is some type of format for premium publishers, I suppose it could be but it's on a plain blogspot blog and I read a lot in this niche and had never heard of it until today.

Are you sure this is not the fallback for when there are no links for adlinks?

I believe you are correct.

Too bad. I would like to have used it on some of my sites.

farmboy, check your page for any stop-words. I've had it on some of my pages before. There are plenty of advertisers, but for some reason it happens.

Make a dummy page, upload it, and then keep adding parts of the original content until the problem happens again. That will narrow it down to what part is causing it.

Oh that old chestnut! I've been through hoops with stop words before and these days I publish a page with a test URL and wait until the ads come up before I put it live. I've noticed in the past that pages can be very sticky and if the ads don't appear it will take a long time to get them going if it's been messed up by a stop word - hence the need for a separate page (or rather URL). I started compiling a list - would you believe "bolshie" was one of them?

Yep, and sometimes the old ways are best. ;)

bolshie ? hmmm. Wonder why. Any ideas ? or does it happen when used with another word.

I suspect, something to do with revolutionary or extreme radicals Google define:bolshie

Can't think of any other reason but removing the word got the ads back.
