Blue Arrows On Google AdSense Ads On iOS

Google AdSense logoIt appears Google is testing showing a new form of large blue arrows on AdSense ads when viewed on an iPad and iPhone. I suspect it shows for all iOS devices and maybe even all smartphones and tablet devices.

Although I did not test Android or other smartphone devices, I do suspect this is a new form of mobile ad unit designs.

I was able to replicate this on my iPad and here are a couple of screen shots of it in action.

I should note, the blue arrows are large and pretty bold on the page, especially on sites where the ton is not blue.

Now, this isn't exactly new. Google was testing a different form of these blue arrows back about 9 months ago.

Maybe now Google made it official?

This stuff is showing up on regular pc's as well. Until they go away, I'm removing them from my site. It looks like crap.

I am getting dotted arrows on google ad sense ads. No idea why they are appearing. On a normal pc. Tried changing the code, but it is of no use. Looks like google ads have something different about them now.
