It looks like Google is caving on the policy of not allowed animated images within its AdSense program. According to an article over at DM News named Google Plans Flashier Image Ads said, "A test group will run animated GIF files, though Google said it would keep its maximum file size for image ad units at 50 kilobytes."

While animated image ads must still adhere to the 50KB rule of non-animated ads, it will be interesting to see just how "animated" they are. Will advertisers be allowed to use a "punch the monkey" annoying style of animation? Or will it be limited to two or three slow-moving frames?
