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.
