AdSense shrinks clickable areas on their Ads
Now, this is going to draw some discussions among AdSense Publishers. Google has now redefined what area in their ads are clickable and not.
It will be a little hard to describe that changes but here’s an image to illustrate that:

Huge difference, huh?
In essence, what Google is trying to decrease incidents of accidental clicks. This usually happens when ads are placed on the top most and the right most side of the page where surfers usually hovers their mouse pointers. Accidents do happen when people try to navigate along the tabs and the scroll bars of the browser so shrinking the areas on the ads that are clickable will likely help avoid this.
Surely, this will lower AdSense revenues of a lot of publishers.
