What's with the grey ad background against a white page? Looks real bad!
Is this a glitch or have they been doing this for a while?
Thats on one of my hubs by the way... about advertising on cars...
Thats on my new hub - how to create a successful hubpage.
I think it is a rather good than a bad thing.
Speaking as an arty dude, the white background isn't totally overwhelmed by the light grey block and it almost blends in and doesn't cause that much of a headache....and I can almost detect a whiff of red wine on the breeze with a hint of mint leaves as a compositional element!?.....I've been smoking too much toot!
I would be inclined to agree with Ryan, I don't agree the grey blends in. It is an eye sore but then again they aren't concerned about Design and were probably trying to get it to stand out. Maybe they could of tried a very subtle bluey/grey?
I don't care what it looks like as long as it will make me more money.
All my content appears to be smart priced right now(I believe this is due to the fact that I kept revamping my personal blog and jacked up my ad views, which lowered my CTR - I've seen this happen before!), but when my clicks get back to normal in a few days, I'm sure this new format will help!
The key thing though, the color design of the ad blends in to every hubpage, even the sidebars are the same color!
Different shades of grey relate to the whole sites design!
I do agree that if it has to be any colour other than white, grey would be it. It could look worse, but I still prefer white. Irrespective of earnings.

There have been several theories about what content Google is penalising and rewarding in the search results but at the moment it does seem a bit random (from my end). Let's compare notes and hopefully we can see some common threads in there. What content of yours is holding on to its ranking and...

I went to sign up for analytics... using the account I already have with them... and I was referred to html code that they tell me I have to embed in my pages. No other code is sent to me. There is no code in my affiliate setting. Also... Adsense still has a sign up next to it. I...

I started the Hub Challenge on Sept 28th, so my challenge will run from Sept 28 to Oct 28th making 30 days. I thought I would take a moment out and post what progress has been made so far. Well since you aren't supposed to discuss Adsense earnings that's out, but as far as traffic goes....Sept 1st...
