Google Adsense: Google Adsense Themed Ad Units Can Brighten Up Your Holidays 

What are Themed Ad Units.  Simple.  They are ads that have special colors and graphics to celebrate the season!  For instance, you might see your ad with orange print with a picture of a black cat for Halloween.  How about red print with a green mistletoe for Christmas?

The Themed Ad Units are specifically tailored to users in the appropriate locations as determined by their IP address.  For instance, a user in the United States might see colors and graphics appropriate to the Fourth of July while users everywhere could see colors and graphics for New Years Day.

Again, it’s your choice and your page.  You can turn Themed Ad Units on or off  by yourself.  Just log in to your account, go to the My Account tab. On the Account Settings page, scroll down to the Ad Type Preferences section and click Edit.  You can now enable or disable the Themed Ad Units.  Click save changes and Voila!  Your selection will apply to all your Google Adsense Ads.

Google Adsense: Familiarize Yourself with the Google Adsense Preview Tool

The Google Adsense Preview Tool allows you to preview the ads that may show on any web page thereby letting you make an educated decision on whether to add Google Adsense to your existing pages.

You can also view sample ad formats and colors which will allow you to see how the colors and formats you want to appear in your ads will look before they actually launch on your pages.

You can also view borders, backgrounds and text colors from the preview tool and by clicking preview you can see how these will look with actual ads.

You can also see geo-targeted location ads meaning you can see what ads users in Canada can see even if you live in Japan.

The Preview Tool is available in all active Adsense languages and is easy to install.  For specific installation instructions,  you’ll need to go to the Google Adsense Support site.  Follow the instructions and click on the link provided and you’ll be a previewing genius in no time!
