I just saw a 300X250 ad and there were no mistakes - Wonder if google is cutting off words in other sized ads.

Your right. Google is cutting off words. It's a new ad type they have so I guess it's going to take come tweaking.

I'm waiting for the one that says "Learn to Overcock" Thats the gift that keeps giving. Encite watch out HWC forums has entered the male enhancement arena.

Seriously though do you guys have to pay for these google ads or is it like a banner swap thing? Pretty weak of them to just cut your ads to fit.

I doubt that it's a case of anybody "cutting" the text to make it fit. Probably more along the lines of an auto-resize function without a auto-wrap/text-resize feature for the text.

Google has just recently started up a bunch of new ad services for things such as flash and interactive google ads so kinks are still getting worked out. I don't know all the details - but I believe you basically input and give some basic info and images for the ad - and they take care of the rest on their end. This allows the info to get put into ad's of all different sizes, exactly like a text ad, without having to create the dozen variations.

Apparently though, still some niggles.
