If text ads work best for you, I have bad news for you

AdSense keeps "pushing" rich media/image ads on publishers at an alarming rate of change. Just reviewed July to August MTD and AdSense has increased my share of rich media/image ads on my top location by 30%. The placement is such high traffic that anytime I switch to just text only, RPM tanks immediately. If you run all ads types my guess is that you are seeing the same trend. Earnings affected (down 20%) as a result of this shift by Google.

Forgot to mention that double ad serving (same exact image ads) on same page (and fairly close to each other) is now worse than ever. Thanks Google !

All I can say is X2, I noticed this too. And I don't like seeing the same company/ad on diff slots same page.

I never EVER use image ads, and CPC is good enough for me right now not to worry.
