Updated Adsense Text Ad Format To Give More Control Over The Ads

Many bloggers have noticed the adsense text ads with scrolling arrow buttons. Google Adsense team officially announced about this updated text ad format.

Adsense text ad format has been updated to include 'next' and 'previous' arrow buttons for cost-per-click (CPC) ads. 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.

While the ads the user initially sees may be relevant to a publisher's content, they may not be precisely what the user is seeking -- for example, a user may see ads about cheddar and brie cheese but would prefer more information about Swiss cheese. With the 'next' and 'previous' buttons, users can view more cheese ads until a Swiss cheese ad appears.


All text ads will now appear with these arrow buttons. You probably have noticed below test ad on this blog.


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 adsense publishers.
