    I read somewhere else if you make the url in the ad use all 32 characters, it will make the add bigger, and the rest of the ads on the same page too. And the click thru rate is almost double.
    Try typing 'credit cards' in google to see what i mean. The ads takes up 1/3 of the page.

    Not sure what you mean here - you get the same amount of space regardless of URL length, as far as I can see.

    I just tried that and that's the first time I've seen ads on the right at google (if that's what you're referring to).

    So smaller search terms give smaller ads?

    I just tried it on my ad. What you do is edit you ad where it says 'url to display' and use the maximum 35 characters. This will make your ad and all the ads on the same page your ad appears on bigger. The ad will take up 1/3 of the page.
    Jay - yeah i mean the paid ads on the right.
    If you want the ad bigger just use all 35 characters in the url to display box. I've heard the click thru rate is double. If anybody has Google Adwords give it a try and let me know what you see. You don't need to change the actual url, the only thing you need to changes is the url to display. You pay the same but get more ad space and higher click thru rates.

    You also make all of the other ads the same size, but it definitely seems to help CTR. Surely Google is going to fix this bug soon... then again its apparently been working since at least March...

    That's great but the real winner is this person; www.secured-unsecured-low-interest-credit-cards.com/

    I wish I could pull that off.

    Markymark, you won't see the same results because Google knows you're in the UK and will feed you UK-specific ads.

    If you go through Megaproxy you'll see the US results.. and they *are* bigger [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    As unbelievable as it sounds I get no Adwords at all when I type 'credit cards'?

    What Dynamoo said, it seems you can't see it if you're not in America. But the Megaproxy is a nice site. I've made mine bigger by doing this and also the people(my competitors)whose ads show up on the same page as mine, you're welcome. And i have noticed a slight increase in CTR.
