Adsense trick ive not seen before.....

Discussion in 'Placement / Reviews / Examples' started by webdesignlist, Jul 3, 2005.

    i was browsing around car forums as usual and came across a neat way that they displayed an adsense ad....

    the idea has probably been around forever, but its the first time i have seen it.....

    http://www.preloved.co.uk/fuseaction-forums.showdiscussion/thread_id-12569/0d7fb9a1.html

    check the lower part of the page for an orange ad with a non-square background....

    if anyone has seen years ago, no need to act clever and say so :-D

    EDIT...
    I just noticed its sometimes not an adsense ad, but one of their own, so you may need to refresh sometimes.

    I saw it done with a colored rounded background. It does make it look like something other than adsense, and that could help ctr.

    First time I've seen that sort of integration, it's pretty neat, I may have to give something similar to that a go :)

    few errors on your page.

    Personally I find that dominates your page rather than fits in with it. If I saw a page like that I'd assume the site was spammy and click away before it loaded. You might like to check the impressions that others get.

    if you good in CSS, you can make it better. I use CSS to positioning adsense inside the images, but since I'm not so good in CSS, its look terrible in IE. But if you using firefox, its look fine

    That's the idea, ads should not blend in with the site design too much - otherwise they're overlooked

    if it is old why do you post here then, idiot?

    Thats very nice thanks! I guess the nice minus you gave me have nothing to do with this post but just that you do not like me. The fact that you could not state your nick name here. Why did i post a new post here? Well if there is any new tricks maybe we should let people know about them dont you think? instead of creating a new Thread (we should try to avoid that) i wrote something in a old one like it said in the rules and faq? What is that you do not understand?
