My apologies in advance if I am posting this question to the wrong forum.
I came across a website which implements its google adsense ads in an interesting way, using a method I am not familiar with.
If you look at the left hand column of this page you will see that the text and links of the ads show up in larger text than usual, and if you hover over the links you get the name of the website on the status bar rather than a google referral code. In short, the links look organic and it is very hard to tell that they are google ads except for the inconspicuous google ads tag at the top. I suspect that they are using some sort of feed. Can anyone explain or tell me more about how this is done. It looks interesting.
Here is the link: http://www.unexplainedstuff.com/Places- … r-Wat.html (note the links in the left hand column)
I have absolutely no connection with this site.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can give me more information on how this is done.
They look the same as the links in my hubs to me. Am I missing something?
They don't look like anything I've ever seen on HP.
I think they look pretty cool -- but are they are allowed to look that much unlike typical adsense ads??
Maybe there's a bit of CSS at work. Formatting things so all fonts are shown larger, eg: font-size: larger;
I wouldn't have thought that it would have effected the Adsense Ads itself, but when I change the font size for the entire page manually (hold down CTRL and use either - or +) it does change the Adsense text size too.
The ads are a bit deceptive because they look like normal HTML links, but I don't think there is anything wrong in having the Adsense ads blend in - in fact Adsense recommends using a background in the ad the same as your page. What I don't get is how they made the text larger. When I use CSS it has no effect on the google ads, and you are not supposed to alter the adsense code itself. I really wish I knew how they did it. I bet their click through rate is very good.
They most likely have a special deal with google. That kind of formatting isn't generally available. Either that or they are doing something they shouldn't be and will get into trouble soon.
I believe AdSense Premium Publishers are allowed a wider choice of Ad setups than 'ordinary' partners. I often see popular websites displaying AdSense ads with larger fonts. Probably this is a bonus for big guys generating income for Google.

Several days ago it was mentioned that the sidebar had disappeared, appeared, disappeared, on HP Hubs. I just noticed on another site which I am frequently on that the ads have also vanished. I checked a couple others...

If the intro text is longer, on various hubs (some of mine as well) there is an Adsense ad right below the image (see image from my hub this morning).For my own blogs I avoid adding any Adsense below (or next or above)...

Currently my hubs are running ads through both the HP ad program and Google Adsense (External Affiliate). I am thinking of disabling the Adsense ads on a few hubs only considering that it will raise the CPM of HP ads....

I'm sure I'm not alone in this. When I open a page I do not want it to start talking to me or playing music unless I press play. I really hate those adverts that are like a TV advert and appear on the page, and start...
