      Font size matters - Inside AdSense
      I am only including that link so that you can see how the
      size is supposed to work for each setting.

      The problem with the settings, is that google will change them
      at will to fit the ads shown. Plus, not everybody's
      browser works the same.

      It's a moot point.

      Google has default settings for a reason.

      I know back when they introduced them, I fiddled with large.
      The problem is, if the ad block is full, the font size still is small.
      If one ad block gets one ad or two, the large font size looks out
      of place next to the smaller font in another ad.

      I like uniformity. The default settings keep most ads balanced about
      the page.

      Just do a test and try them both. You can't tell which one is better because different audiences, ad placements, site themes will alter the results. You need to figure out which one is best for you.

      If there was 'the best' ad layout, but now it would have been used too much and it wouldn't be effective. As I said, play around with it and see the CTR rates. However, give them time to show their results. Some days will have naturally lower CTR rates than others. That doesn't go to ad style.

    The "best" one is usually the one that most closely matches your body font. That is usually Arial. Hence the reason it is default.

    Still using ctr theme!!! I use thesis with arial font small, one banner ad just below the navigation and one skyscraper in sidebar, one big rectangle at the end of article. This usually gives me ctr about 7-9% with a good looking site and low bounce rate around 50% and good avg time on site 2-4 minutes.

    It depends on the design of the site you are putting it on, some people make their ads blend in and swear that produces high results, some people make their ads stand out from the rest of the site's design and they too swear on it. Test out a different look and feel every day for a month and use the highest converting version

    Yeah Google really messes up the ads in different browsers, sometimes real small with 4 of them in one rectangle, sometimes out of the ordinairy with only 1-2 ads in the block. Very annoying if you ask me.

    Like others said, it depends on the font that you use at your website and just chose the best matching one. CTR also depends on the colours that you use, some say you have to make it natural so that it looks the same like the rest of your site, while others say to use different colors to make the ad jump out of the rest. Not sure what to follow. The only way to know is by split testing things.
