    One of the regular visitors to my site emailed me today and asked, "What up with the Ads by Goooooooooooooooooooogle thing? Did you do that?"

    Which makes me think several people are probably thinking I've lost my mind and gone around putting extra Os everywhere. They don't realize I don't have control over it.

    I said, "So you noticed it, huh?" and she wrote back, "How could I miss it?" hehe.

    Ah rellaaaxxxxx guys. Seriously, it's not the end of the world.

    If no one likes it, I'm sure that it will change. In the meanwhile, it won't destroy your site, so make do.

    Like I say, it's not the end of the world. You've got to expet G to try new things.

    The GOOOOOOOOGLE shows on all my ads on my page. I hate it. My users think it's dumb and serves very little purpose.

    Dunno. I think it might depend on category of your site content.

    Maybe sites that are more related towards entertainment get the extra o's while business related sites don't show it.

    Just a guess. No real testing to back it up.

    Could it be the size of the ad that's chosen to show on a website? Shorter ads; like the tower; get a short google. Longer ones get a long google.

    Size would make sense, but I guess they could shrink the font to make the extra o's fit.

    In all honesty, I really don't see why they did this.

    I definitly prefer the original shorter oooo version and ideally would like the entire "ads by google" gone (like that would ever happen). The more the ads can be integrated into the original look of the web page the better the click thrus, IMHO.

    Google is no doubt testing this for potential future features.

    Every pixel space counts nowadays. :D

    There is only one reason to do this, to test to see if folks will click on the Google tag line more with the longer word.

    It makes No difference to the end user, they could not care less, I think the longer name is there because folks try to use contrast so much to make the ads fit into their page.

    This is just a test.....This is just a teeeeeessssssttttttttttt. Which one would catch your eye first?

    Yeah, but would you click it.

    Someday, however, I do think google will likely sell that text link space as well, thus giving them 3 ads in one 468x60 banner.

    Why would they sell that permanent text link back to the Adsense interface?

    They are all ready running so many of their own banners and text ads within the program right now that it smacks of silly self promotion.

    How much more overkill do you need to get folks to understand the program?
