Change Font Face of the Text in AdUnits (New Feature in Adsense)

    HI,

    I think adsense team has done with the experiment. Finally they have released the different fonts for the adunits.

    http://adsense.blogspot.com/2009/02/fontastic-new-options-for-your-ad-units.html

    Post your opinion about this change. Will it increase the CTR?

    I think it's a good choice to improve the blending ads into content. It will make our ads more looks like original content :)

    But, everything should be applied and tested within a week to see if the new improvement could help us increased our CTR. Anyway, it looks promising.

    good...but its very little difference for generating more clicks. Still adsense team has to come up with some innovative ideas. what do you think?

    Something I always wondered about. Sometimes my google ads change font by themselves. Even before this new features, some ads would have a clearly different font from the other units on the page. Anybody noticed that before ?

    I have noticed things like that. Even they had some problems like putting different adunits by mistake. It is ongoing tests by adsense team. so, we would see some strange behavior sometimes.

    This is nothing great. Those text ads are crappy no matter what the font family is.
    They can only blend well in a 90s design.
    Let's hope for some gradients, buttons, etc.

    You're obviously not creative enough.

    If I know that then I would be in Google :)
    Since global economy is down, google also facing the presure of less revenue. They have to way to increase the revenue.

    Standard and Verdana look identical. The old standard WAS Verdana. Looks like it still is.
    Ariel is a nice additional choice.
    Times looks terrible. It is too small, and the serifs look muddy, and harder to read.

    So, no change for me. Verdana it was, and Verdana it is.
