Google Ads on BLF Larger than Ever?

The size of Google Ads on BLF is new to me:

May be related: some days ago I noticed that adblock on my phone stopped working on BLF… (on PC I use request policy, do I don’t have the issue).

Hmmm, that’s weird. I haven’t changed anything in the Google Adsense configuration for a while now. But maybe Google did. Technically, the Google ads come directly from Google’s servers, using their own code that gets loaded separately, so they could technically make a change that would make an ad blocker no longer recognize their ads. But the size shouldn’t change. For what it’s worth, this is what I’m seeing. (For some reason, it’s repeated, and in the wrong language, and not at all relevant):

Totally inconceivable, google adds are now larger than your signature.

Not seeing any ads here. Smile

The only thing I’m seeing is your giant signature, raccoon city. Smile

EDIT: Nevermind, I fixed it. Smile

Google's really getting their money's worth...

@raccoon city: That is a bit excessive… First time I’ve seen that. I wouldn’t use that ad banner size if I knew it could inflate that much, but the problem is that everyone gets different ads based on their interests, so it’s hard to know what others are seeing.

The good thing about Google Ads is that it's frequently something different.

They rarely advertise anything I'm interested in, but I'm glad they sponsor the site.  :THUMBS-UP:

Google seems to be very good at throwing ads at me for stuff I have already bought.

Good idea. The white space didn’t collapse, but at least there’s nothing annoying now.
