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.

Why am I seeing ads for Maven on my unpublished, unfinished Hub? Possibly (hopefully) a glitch? This makes no sense. Nobody sees an unpublished Hub but the writer. Is Maven marketing to HubPages writers? Aren't we part of Maven? They appear to be Adsense ads, so we can't click on them anyway.I am...

Something just occured to me, not only are we writers here but we are ALSO CONSUMERS. I see nothing wrong with clicking on a fellow hubbers google ad if it's something we are interested in. I am getting the feeling that some people are afraid to do this for fear of reprisal for being click happy...

Adsense sent me a message that says that my publisher ID is not in my Hubpages and HowTheyPlay ads.text files. My earnings are fine generally, not too concerned, just wanted to bring the issue to your attention.

Hi fellow hubbers,I recently wrote a hub on plastic pollution, and below a tragic picture of a plastic-polluted beach, there are small ads for plastic products.I find this insensitive to the theme of the hub and parasitic on the cause IN A BAD WAY.I assume that I have absolutely NO control over...
