    I'm rotating 3 different formats in two different page locations on one of my sites for a total of 6 channels. A random number generator determines which format and location shows up. The ads are making a similar number of impressions: the impression counts are within 3% from highest # of impressions to lowest # of impressions.

    Two of my channels are winning out over the other four in terms of CTR.

    One of those channels is blowing the doors off the other in terms of EPC. Same pages. Same site. Same number of ads in each format. Heck, the exact same number of click-throughs!

    Is it possible that Google places higher-paying ads in the "in your face" ad formats?

    I think revealing that information publicly is a violation of the Adsense TOS.

    Agreed.

    *Against my better judgement*

    In Your Face = Medium Rectangle.

    Most banners/leaderboards/skyscrapers get placed "out of the way".

    Rectangles, squares, etc. generally get placed in the middle of things, hence "in your face".

    @ weisinator:

    Yep, they're about as "in your face" as you can get!

    Also, consider carefully exactly WHERE the ads will be placed on the page. Look at the keywords in the paragraphs before and after where the ad is placed...

    Now that is interesting. The site isn't equipped to handle this kind of test.

    Hah! I wondered why my earnings jumped yesterday. It'll be interesting to see if that continues. My earnings with Google have gone downhill so a little pick-me-up is most appreciated.

    I then broke that record three days later.

    Today is shaping up to be another record day.

    Time to experiment for another week with colors.
