    That is a pretty hard question. That can mean anything. Im pretty sure it means click the ads, but if they ask him he can say a totally different thing. So im not really sure.

    Yepp, this site is breaking TOS.

    once i had arrows (>>) alng with adsense on one of my sites, and I mailed google to ask whether it is okay or not, they said, I can not draw attention by any means to the ads, thus its not okay.

    putting gif like that is violation of TOS,for sure

    Very clear case of "Drawing Undue Attention to Thy Ads", hence I think its breaking TOS of google.

    A little OT, but does anyone know where I can get one of those 'post it' in the right hand corner? I want one, I want one!

    That was what I was implying, that given time you could certainly figure it out by copying (I hate using that word) borrowing from what was done. However, thanx to AboutITWorld's link, I would probably go that route as it looks like a ready made solution. Would make things easier/quicker!

    Good luck!
