[adsense.blogspot.com...]
* Leaderboard (728x90): the title, description, and URL are now arranged in rows instead of columns (except in the case when only one ad is showing)
* Medium and large rectangles (300x250, 336x280): the URL is now in the same line as the title


You might want to check if the new layout 'fits' your site.

Still seeing no real change related to this.

What puzzles me is the cutting off of the URLs in the 300x250 adblocks. That seems to me like it owuld have a negative effect.

Why not just wrap the url?

Yea, I'm seeing that on the 728 x 90 as well - the urls are totally getting cut off. Really looks bad.

I agree, url chopping looks amateurish and unprofessional.

I changed the URL color to a light color - doesn't seem nearly as noticeable now - really not even an issue from my perspective.

According to an update today on the AdSense Blog; they're going back to the old format on the 300 x 250 blocks.

I can't find that update on the Inside AdSense blog....

got a link?

Nevermind, I found it. It's on the old message [adsense.blogspot.com] announcing the new format.

Update: ... After much consideration, we've decided to return to a 3 line layout in the medium rectangle (300x250) so the URLs have more space. ...

That's a good change, the urls were getting cut off and looked really odd.

Based on my sites, the 728 Leaderboard has gone back to the old format also.

What they really mean is, "now that you have tested it for us..."

I've seen that too, but I noticed also that the same page showed the new format in Chrome and the old format in FF. After clearing the doubleclick cookie FF showed the new format again.

Yep, mine has been alternating between the formats since the beginning.
