Speaking of Google testing new types of AdSense ads – Dave from DaveDevelopment just emailed me to show me a new type of ad that he’s seen Google experimenting with. Here’s how it looks (click to enlarge):
It’s a 728×90 banner ad with pictures inset into the ad next to the text of the ad and with tabs along the top that seems to be titled ‘related’ with some tabs after it under the headings of ‘searches’, ‘web pages’ and ‘video’.
I’m not sure how these ads work as I’ve not seen one live in action – but they seem to be another ad format that lets readers of a site choose what they want to see (similar to Chitika’s eminimalls).
This will be an interesting one to watch!
