    Scroll Arrows On Some Ads
    Looks like something new or just testing out. I have a big 728 x.. banner on my forum and they have some scroll arrows < > on the bottom left of the ad. I can't imagine people scrolling to find an ad they want to click but who knows, could be wrong, will keep an eye on the stats.

    eh, don't see them anymore.

    Here's the latest.

    http://adsense.blogspot.com/2008/04/show-me-ads.html

    When a user clicks on the 'next' button, an entirely new group of ads will appear in the ad unit, giving your users greater control over the ads they see and click.
    This is not always the case. In fact, I just saw a single ad on a 728*90 ad unit with the scroll arrows. I clicked the arrow and then it displayed 4 ads, the first of which was the same as the single ad on the previous pane.

    I think Google has gone overboard with this. I don't like it.

    Interesting. I thought maybe the scroll arrows were some sort of function of a new blog theme I was using.

    I haven't done much with Adsense for quite some time, but just put some onto one of my smaller, newer blogs -- and that's when I first noticed the scroll arrows. At first, I thought I was "seeing things." Nice to discover they really ARE there. LOL!

    Surprised noone pointed out that no earnings will be paid on ads clicked in the Previous or Next boxes.

    G has carved out a space on your pages for free, if the users use the functionality.

    blog quote:
    You won't generate earnings for clicks on the 'next' and 'previous' buttons, but these buttons will help improve both advertiser value and your potential revenue. When users click on the buttons, they begin interacting with the ads and are more likely to find the specific offering they're looking for, which can lead to higher earnings for you.
    Noth, I seemed to skip that part when this thread was first posted.
    How exactly does the above statement lead to higher earnings for the adsense user? I guess G said it will, so it must be true.

    Noth, where in the world did you get that idea?

    buyjewelry, you didn't skip anything when this thread was first posted. The language you quoted which comes from the link I posted last week, was just posted on the AdSense Blog last week.

    It leads to higher earnings if the user doesn't click on the initial pane of ads but does click on an ad displayed on a subsequent screen.

    Wait, do they mean SPECIFICALLY the Next/Previous buttons, or the ads that appear in those spaces?

    I got the idea from the exact quote BuyJewelry posted up there. However, I'm thinking it's just me misreading that statement.

    Ahhhh - oops. Yeah Noth, they are just talking about the next and previous buttons. We must have read it the same way.

    Yup. In re-reading it, I had just read it wrong is all. While it would be proposterous for G not to pay on those ads, nothing surprises me anymore. Of course, G is usually a pretty straight shooter.
