I’ve shrunk the annoying ad to a small box now. I personally don’t like web sites oversaturated with ads. I know this is a very good opportunity for many sites to make money with their ads, but it also decreases the value of appeal of the site. I usually ignore ads when I see them. But many sites are making money with ads now, it would be a wasted opportunity not to gain some revenue. However, you would want to make the ads subtle and non-intrusive. Like Cap@StopBuyingCrap.com says, have your ads “blend in your site template or layout” to make a compromise between appeal and revenue.
I tried my best to match the ad background color to my blog’s. I can’t seem to find the exact code for the color palette, but it’s close enough now. I hope it’s all easier on the eyes now. Also, I can’t add the ads on the right side of my blog, under Sponsors. Does AdSense limit the number of ads you can put up?
I’ll report the AdSense revenues tomorrow.
