Google AdSense IconGoogle AdSense announced they have updated the design for the link units and landing pages that those link units end up on.

In short, the link units are now easier to read, have less keyword suggestions and are more spacious.

Here are before and after shots:

As you can see, the difference is pretty noticeable.

They also revised the landing page when you click on the text links in the AdSense link unit to look more like the new overall Google design.

The formatting feels very 'applefied'... should aid click-throughs, though!

if they want to improve CTR they will make the "ads by google" bit less noticeable.

Google has some of the best ideas out there. I know that this will help get the attention of potential customers when they are looking for ads.
