The really sad thing is that I really like the way Adsense Beautifier made my post pages look… regardless of the increase in clicks.Â So, rather than get rid of the beautifier altogether, I changed the image to one solid block of a windsurfer, which I thought looked pretty cool too.
Will clickthroughs suffer? Maybe. Does it comply with the new rules? The image isn’t lined up, or related to, the Adsense ads, so I believe so, but I’ve asked Google via email to confirm.
Sigh. So long funky beautifier pictures.
