AdSense Adds Link Unit Ad Previews For Higher CTR

Google recently updated their Adsense link units to include thumbnails in the ad pages  in order to improve publishers' performance. From now on link unit ad pages will show previews of advertisers' landing page in addition to the usual text links. Tests conducted by Google showed thumbnail images generated higher CTR (Click-Through Rates), leading to increased publisher revenue and more conversions for advertisers.

Good news I have always found Google Adsense to be one of the best affiliate programs. In fact I have dropped most of my other programs, less is more sometimes.

I think this will definitely increase CTR. I myself have been wary of clicking certain adsense links in the past.

wow, new look for link unit :)

I added link units on my site. But do you think it is safe to click the initial link unit just to test how it looks like? I will not click the link on the second page, just the ones that initially displayed when viewing a page. What do you think?
