Adsense Themed Ad Units Launched

    I've just noticed themed ad units. I think this might do well. I think there are many pros and cons. As far as drawing attention goes it'll definately draw more attention. I enabled it, allthough it doesn't show right away.

    Anyone else care to comment?

    Hi

    I just read the FAQ (Fryman, sorry, didn't see that thread!) and it states that the themed ads gets served geographically based on your IP address. So only peeps on the US will see Thanks Giving ads and probably Halloween ads too (and 4th of July ones). I'm not sure whether anyone outside the US can actually see themed ads at all (probably just on the day). Anyone care to comment? I'm not going to post this question in the other thread too...

    No one has seen the xmas themed ads yet... I have a xmas site and still haven't noticed any difference.

    The info Adsense gave about this is pathetic. For example, what kind of banners will be themed? Some people say that all of them, others say that just the skyscrappers.

    I guess we will just have to wait

    From what I read, the themes are based on "geo-location".....
    So I guess until "geo-location" can eventually zone in on religious/idealistic beliefs, then I guess it is still "pot-luck".......

    I don't think that Christmas would be targeted by geo-location...

    You mean to say that Christmas Themed Ads would be shown to "The Whole World" ?

    At least to like 99% of the world, it isn't such a regional tradition as thanksgiving or halloween

    I agree, but this will probably just be a US rollout, so much more difficult to determine which holidays to promote where?

    ooooooooo, these may not be politically correct. There will be those who object to to themes only about the "C" holiday.

    I just noticed the leaderboards on my site have a similar look:

    I emailed Adsense support to see what's up.
