AdSense adds 200×200 Ad Unit

Jen points out that AdSense have added a new 200×200 ad unit size for publishers.

I always love it when they add a new ad size as it presents new possibilities.

The 200×200 ad unit is called ‘Small Square’ and is available in both text and image ads. Here’s examples of how they look in terms of size.

They look like being a handy size actually – probably will sit well in a lot of sidebars.

    Another possibly good place to put that ad is an inpost entry, floated to the left or right.

    I like that these ads don’t look much like ads(at least they wont for some time) and it is very easy to integrate them to your site.

  3. Nice and good locking indeed. Anyway I’m awaiting from google to come with a custom ad format :)

    Regards

  4. They are okay allright, but the half banner already is quite good. This 200×200 box is bit high in some purposes. Perhaps it’s just me thinking :)

    It is good for sidebar i think :)

  6. Ben Uy says:

    This is just the right size i was looking for! Good thing google decided to come up with this

  7. I love the size. It is a great size for many different places on our blogging network. I do hope that YPN gets on the ball and starts getting some new things going soon.

    This is just what I needed, good for wide sidebars :)

  1. [...] Update: Darren just let me know that Google has added a new 200×200 Ad Unit. Google AdSense has just added a brand new 200×200 “Small Square” ad unit size to their regular ad unit line up. So new, in fact, that AdSense hasn’t announced it yet, and it hasn’t yet made it into their ad format page yet. [...]

  2. [...] Neues Format bei AdSense Der Beitrag wurde am 22. September 2006 von Oliver Karthaus veröffentlicht Lange war es Still bei AdSense, was neue Formate angeht. Jetzt gibt es endlich wieder ein wenig frischen Wind für alle Publisher. Das neue Format ist ein 200×200 Pixel großer Ad, in dem Text-, Video- und Bildanzeigen geschaltet werden können. Auch die Channels wurden komplett überarbeitet. Es tut sich also was bei AdSense. Ein Screenshot der neuen Ad-Unit gibt es bei Jojo zu sehen. Persönlich hätte ich gerne mehr solcher kleinen Formate. Auch die MTV Ads, die Google gerade gemeinsam mit einigen Publishern getestet hat, würden mich interessieren. Mal schauen, was da in Zukunft noch so kommt. via JenSense Abgelegt in Adsense & Co. | Tags: none [...]
