I got an email from Adsense saying this in one part of it:
"We're asking you to review your AdSense for Content units for placements that could result in accidental clicks. We recommend positioning ads at least 150 pixels away from any dynamic Flash content or game player(s). Please modify these implementations as soon as possible if this is your case, otherwise no action is necessary. You can find more detailed information about this on the Inside AdSense blog: Here."
How can I fix this within wordpress?I do have a few youtube videos embedded on a few pages on my website (if that's what they are referring to). It says they need to be 150 pixels away, but how do I know if they are that far away precisely?
Bump. I haven't a clue David, but maybe someone else that is online now does.
Well...if you don't have a handy pixel ruler .....can't you look at the size of a typical 125x125 Google ad or any other affiliate ad from Amazon or Commission Junkie or something and eyeball it? It's a very small size...Maybe a little over an inch or so....I'm tempted to go get a ruler and measure the size on the screen for you of an ad.
Oh...it measures 1.25 inches which is a bit over 3 cm depending on where you are and which measurement you prefer.
I could be figuring this out wrong but this is my guess.
Firefox Plugin "web developer" actually does have a handy pixel ruler built in.
If you want to eyeball it

I would guess the email doesnt apply much to you. People sometimes do such designs on purpose, you would probably know if you were doing it on purpose.
While we are on the subject I noticed that the banner directly above our hubs is right next to the 'Like' and 'Tweet' button, imagine how many accidental clicks that could cause?
Oh and in regards to the original question, it is a bit difficult to change the placement of ads in Wordpress, you either have to try different plugins or if your plugins use widgets you can place the widgets in different areas. I use a plugin called 'Adsense integrator' I think.
If you like the existing placement of you ads, the only other way is to fiddle with your theme templates to alter the margins and this can screw up your whole design unless you know exactly what your doing with html etc.
How is your blog ranking by the way?
@ Richieb799 Well, technically, I could probably position flash content farther away from the ads instead of adjusting the ads themselves. I think so anyway.
