I just logged into my Google AdSense account, and noticed that they updated the terms, and also are introducing AdLinks.

Ad Links are a new form of text advertising that we're offering to our AdSense publishers. Using the same contextual targeting algorithm that targets Google ads to your content pages, Ad Links units display a list of topics that are relevant to your page. Each topic, when clicked, brings the user to a page of related advertisements.

I am pretty sure this is hot off the presses, and I wanted to see what they look I'm posting them right in this entry:

The dynamic frame that's written includes its own styles, some hard coded, some dynamically generated from the Javascript launch code like the color scheme. In addition to having control over colors, it would be great if they provided control over font family, weight, and size. Until then, it looks like we're stuck with 12px Arial.

I think I prefer the way Yahoo lets you embed related links into an article. The yahoo thing is more of a hidden div.

the google frame is also chock full of html warnings when you validate.

I think, for the time being, I stick with the normal adsense links and then use the yahoo contextual links in each blog post.
