In the past we discussed adding Image Ads Above AdSense Ads. Now it looks like some creative people are placing the ads in a vertically aligned fashion. What might be pushing it too far, in my opinion, is how they revamped the "Ads by Gooooogle" part.
The images themselves are not clickable, nor is the "ads by Goooogle" on the left but it is clickable by the Google default, at the top. I wonder if this will fly, I am sure CTR is pretty high for this type of layout.
