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.

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.

My Adsense earnings (not the ad program earnings) dropped by two-thirds yesterday yet I have the same amount of traffic as always. This has never happened before. Did I miss some kind of FYI that the page restructuring was going to affect Adsense earnings? This is bunk.

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 know. Many of my hugs were carefully crafted to ensure this ad appeared above the...

I'm curious which ad program works best for you? Has anyone figured out why either AdSense or HP ads does better for you? Is it content related possibly?Every time I turn off HP's ads and allow just AdSense to run it seems like I make only a small percentage of what I make with both HP and AdSense...
