    Hehe. I think it's OK.
    SEMrush
    I imagine that it is now a little more visible to site visitors.

    Also, it's a bit of a laugh.

    I would bet a few hundred bucks that a main reason for this change is so that the ads are not mistaken for content. This may lower the CTR but increase the Qualtity of Click

    You guys did not hear that they were going to change the name of the company if this is successful? They want everyone to argue over how many O's are in Goooooooogle, do you know?

    You future could depend on it :eek:

    I hate it. Not only is it unprofessional, it looks really stupid. It certainly takes away from the professional appearance of a well designed website.

    Really it is not that big of a deal, Goooooooogle is just trying to see if they get more clicks on the tag line to bring more ADSENSE users into the program with the bigger tag line.

    It must be working because it is being run above for the first time.

    This probably gets slightly more clicks than the traditional Ads by Google, but I also think it looks unprofessional, and assume publishers would rather have their visitors click the actual ads and get paid.

    A bad idea IMHO.

    Well I sent in my feedback and let them know I'm not a fan. Has anyone else contacted big G to let them know if you like or don't like it?

    Good luck, they are doing this as a test of the tag line to see if they get more clicks from those wanting to place ADSENSE on their sites.

    It is nothing more than a tactic to see if they can get higher CTR on the link.

    No big deal, what are folks upset about?

    I think it draws too much attention to the ads and therefore makes them stand out as ads when I've gone to a lot of work to try and seamlessly integrate them into the site so they don't stand out. You can bet I'll be watching my CTR...

    I'm not surprised by this at all.

    Simple marketing really . Google will change things up from time to time to prevent ad "fatigue".

    Here is a thought, having all the Ads by Google links on everyone's web page was starting to hurt Google in their own SEO algorithms? Everyone's page was matching for the term Google, switching to Ads by Goooooogle moves the Google term out of the mix for all of these pages.

    Adsense ads are not indexed, and don't have any effect on seo that I know of.

    The Googlebots (And any other bot for that matter) won't/can't read the JS that the adsense ads use.

    Also, Google will never be outranked for that search term by anyone else...

    At least I don't think they would - It would be fun trying to though.

    Although, I'm not too sure where I could get the millions of links necessarry to do it.

    Here's my thought on why Google has put "Ads by Gooooooogle". Obviously its longer and catches the eye easier and then people are going to remember it easier.

    I was also wondering why is so many people talking about this but no one mentioned it once when Google changed the "Ads by Google" from the bottom of ads to the top? But they still have it on some advertisements like their Leaderboard and Banners... Dunno, just my thought
