Friday we reported that Google is testing new fonts in AdSense ads. Well, I finally found a screen capture of this in action via DigitalPoint Forums.

Here is the screen capture:

AdSense Comic Sans Font

Pretty funky looking, no? If anything, this is a Google test and if they launch this new font, I hope they make it an option for the publisher. Personally, I find the font a bit unprofessional for many sites. But it may work for a specific type of site.

This may show signs that Google may be enabling the ability for publishers to pick a font style for their AdSense ads. If so, that is great news.

totally agree Barry this should definitely be something you can opt-out of.

I would 2nd that! This would not fit in on several sites I'm running AdSense on. But on a side note, the different font may make the ads stick out, since they don't fit in, grab attention and generate more clicks.

So long as I control which font is used on which site then not a problem. Otherwise typographical disaster looms...
