Yep, they are doing what most people who optimize adsense have been doing all along "blending". My worry is that it will decrease traffic to organic if I am understanding this correctly.

I guess it will decrease (every click on an AdWords is one click less on an organic result, unless of course the site which advertised didn't satisfy the searcher), but not in any dramatic amount, I don't think so... I rarely click on AdWords anyway, I wonder what are the reasons we click on them? For what kind of searches?

In my experience, the highest consistent click-throughs come when a well known company bids on it's own brand name. You know, the classic "Brand X – Official Site".

I seem to remember a popular example at one time was [flowers]

Jason: that stupidity never ceases to amaze me, why would they even consider a paid result when they're already on top of the organic list? I just keep clicking them anyway, just to waste their money for being so stupid...

They'd buy an ad to push down the ads their competitors bought. Nike doesn't want Reebok's ad to get clicked from a search for [Nike].

My AdSense income was twice the usual amount over the last couple of days. Page impressions remained the same. Can larger ads really be the reason? I've only been part of AdSense for about six weeks, so I don't know what changes to expect over longer periods of time.

AN, this was just the AdWords font size they increased, not AdSense as far as I know...
