    Hey everyone,

    Does anyone know how to style your ads in such a was that they look like the rest of the site? So I mean the font, text size, link style etc. Because right now on my Site you can clearly tell what are the ads and whats part of the site...

    Any help is much appreciated,

    Thanks.

    Do you have an example of you website we could see. It would be helpful in telling you how and where to place the ads after seeing the design you have.

    If you're referring to the adsense / google ads, you can control that via adsense for that particular block... font, color, etc...

    You don't want to try to be deceptive and try to make people think that they are part of your site - thus forcing accidental clicks - as that might eventually come back to bite you as it's against TOS for most text based advertising programs... :) Just sayin...

    Yep, adsense allows you to change the colors of your ads to match your website. Also make sure you think about where you are placing the ads so they look like they belong in the content and aren't just off to the side somewhere.

    I think the link in the signature is not working for me, but I like your question and will be constantly visiting back to check on the answer to this question.
