    For the longest time I have been using an AdSense font size that matches the
    font size that I have on my website. However, I have read in multiple locations
    that a larger font size will increase your earnings regardless of whether or not
    that font size matches the size and format of the content on your website
    .
    SEMrush
    With that being said, I am curious. Has anyone increased their earnings with
    a larger font size? Also, what font size are you using?


    I was using small, but I am now testing the large.

    I leave the adsense font size at the default... Maybe I should try bigger and see if I get a better CTR

    I wasn't aware that you could change the font sizes in your adsense ads.

    However the best font to choose is debatable, but blending the adsense font with your sites default links seem to have the best affect.

    For me I will go with Adsense default font style and size and I think it's better to use medium size fonts which is better for you as it gives better CTR then large ones or small ones!

    I don't think larger fonts means more earnings.
    Go for the fonts which blends with your site's fonts.

    Should we be blending our AdSense ads with our site, or should we use a
    medium sized AdSense ad and blend our site with it?

    Why We Should Use a Medium Font Size and Blend Our Site with that Size AD

    The Medium Font size should be used for AdSense ads and our site should
    be made to match the size and family of that ad. This way, ads appear
    bold, but are still the same size to match the content of your site.

    After creating the larger font size, match your site to that AdSense ad.
    This is a fast process if you're using CSS.

    Once your site's content matches the AdSense ad's Medium font size and style of your choice, your
    AdSense ads will appear bold to the reader, enticing them to click the ad.
    (Bold usually means important).

    In the screen below, I decided to use a Medium Font Size, with a Family of Arial for the "this is better" image.

    Personally I do my best to blend ADsense fonts with font of my site. Also color/background and position of adsense is important.
    You don't loose anything if you put some adsense near some download links :)

    You are right, if the adsense font size matches with the font size of the content, it does look a lot better. I was about to say that font size probably doesnt matter, but your graphics convinced me otherwise.
