Had one of those stressy days so not sure if I can do this here .. if not delete it .. but would appreciate comments on the layout of an example page of a site I'm doing .. mainly re effectiveness of ad placings ... I suspect I've veered slightly towards the 'design' side of things ..

to nitpick, if it was mine - i would lose the borders on adsense blocks and center the skyscraper.
ta .. why lose the borders ? I prefer them but that is probably once again a designer view
Im a designer also. Guess we have different tastes.
As a designer and a marketer, adsense modules seem to perform better when they are blended into the theme a bit more than you have currently done.
Its an easy change! keep it as you like and be sure to occasionally make changes and measure your results.
As a designer, you will find that little things that catch or lead the eye can be very useful in attracting viewer attention.
To be honest, I spent ages faffing about with wordpress and got so frustrated that I knocked that one together pretty quickly .. I will have a bit of a tidy up I think .. maybe just need to sleep on it .. been a frustrating day all round .. ta :-)
I also eliminate borders. They seem to do better for me when they "blend" more.
It's not to bad but I think the advertising immediately sticks out a bit to much. Maybe format the title of the page content better and include a footer as well.

The ad that used to be placed within the text area, usually to the right of the first block of text has gone. I understand that this is an experiment. Could HP confirm whether this change is permanent, or when we will...
