Mashing up google ads using java script?

    Locanto looks like a recent AU gumtree clone that likes local subdomains.
    What do you guys think of these ad blocks above and below the classifieds.

    http://sydney.locanto.com.au/Pets/T/

    I have pasted in some code source snippets below. They are cutting up the ads using java script and placing them into their own format that blends with the classifieds are they not?

    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
    <!--

    var loc_lang = "en";
    var loc_max_num_ads_header= 2;
    var loc_max_num_ads_footer= 5;
    var loc_max_num_ads_not_found= 5;
    var loc_min_num_ads= 2;
    var google_adnum = 0;
    var ad_count=100;

    function google_ad_request_done(google_ads) {

    var s = '';
    var i;


    if (google_ads.length == 0) {
    document.write('&nbsp;')
    return;
    }
    s += '<TR class="entry-adsense-header"><TD colspan=2>&nbsp;<\/td><td><div style="font-size:8pt;">' + '<a href="' + google_info.feedback_url + '">Ads by Google<\/a>' + '<\/div><\/TD><\/TR>';

    if (google_ads[0].type == "image") {
    s += '<TR class="entry-adsense" id="resultRow_' + ad_count +'" onmouseover="DoNav(\'resultRow_' + ad_count + '\',\'highlight\',\'entry-adsense\')"><TD colspan=2>&nbsp;<\/td><td><a href="' + google_ads[0].url +
    '" target="_top" title="go to ' + google_ads[0].visible_url +
    '"><img style="border:none;" src="' + google_ads[0].image_url +
    '"width="' + google_ads[0].image_width +
    '"height="' + google_ads[0].image_height + '"/><\/a><\/TD><\/TR>';

    } else {
    if (google_ads.length == 1 && loc_max_num_ads > 1) {
    ad_count++;
    s += '<TR class="entry-adsense" id="resultRow_' + ad_count +'" onmouseover="DoNav(\'resultRow_' + ad_count + '\',\'highlight\',\'entry-adsense\')"><TD colspan=2>&nbsp;<\/td><td><a href="' + google_ads[0].url +

    '<\/span><\/TD><\/TR>';
    if (google_ads[0].bidtype == "CPC") {
    google_adnum = google_adnum + google_ads.length;
    }

    } else if (google_ads.length > 1 || (google_ads.length == 1 && loc_max_num_ads == 1)) {
    for(i=0; i < google_ads.length; ++i) {
    ad_count++;
    s += '<TR class="entry-adsense" id="resultRow_' + ad_count +'" onmouseover="DoNav(\'resultRow_' + ad_count + '\',\'highlight\',\'entry-adsense\')"><TD colspan=2>&nbsp;<\/td><td><a href="' + google_ads.url +

    } // end of for
    if (google_ads[0].bidtype == "CPC") {
    google_adnum = google_adnum + google_ads.length;
    }
    }
    }
    SEMrush
    document.write(s);
    return;
    }
    // -->

    Hard to say though... it looks like they've pretty much changed the way adsense shows itself. While it still includes all of features of normal adsense (like "Ads by Google" and having the URL under the description), they've changed how it's spaced and other formatting. And on the right side they've made the URL as small as possible.

    What bothers me most are the Adsense blocks at the top and bottom of the list. They've changed the spacing between each link and hell, you can even select the text, which isn't normal in itself.

    They perhaps should have just gone another step further and made ads that click on themselves.

    I know premium customers can do things like this to their ads. I wish google would allow us little guys to be able to do it too. Out ctr's would be so much better, thus earning them more money.

    That is a bit unfair. Especially as the ads seem so blended with classified links. How much revenue payola does it take to become a premium publisher?

    Right or wrong, It's a clever bit of coding and 'blending'. I bet they get a high CTR.... :)
