Are the AdSense team actively encouraging people to make their ads misleading?

I log in to AdSense this morning and see a little tip from them;

"Match the border and background colour of ad unit "xxxx" to improve performance."

Now, what other reason is there to have same border color as background color other than the fact they think ads that blend in and look like site navigation rather than ads get more clicks?

Why don't they just say out straight "put an add with same color links directly under your navigation and hopefully people will click them by mistake" as that is effectively what the hint applies.

Clickable Phone Numbers in Meta Descriptions in Google Results Pages

Never noticed this before, but when using Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 a telephone number in the Meta Description creates a clickable link in the Google results pages.

Doesn't appear to do a lot of good as clicking on it brings up a pop up box asking if you want to switch applications, and if you say Yes it just opens up Chrome.

How can it be that a video as good as this gets only 27,000 views in just over a year?

It would never really cross my mind to write a review about a store like TK Maxx, but for one thing, the friendliness, professionalism and helpfulness of the staff in the Stratford branch. The store itself is well laid out, items are good (nice and cheap), store seems to always be clean, but it's the staff that make it, they really are a credit to TK Maxx

The beauty of Shipston Pizza & Kebab house is I can get away with having a kebab without getting too much of a rollicking from the wife. The reason being the kebabs are far more health than your usual kebab house (or at least that's what I tell her) Service is always very friendly, food is always fresh and packaged, delivery is always on time.

Lovely little wildlife park and gardens with lots to see and do. The beauty of Cotswold Wildlife Park is it is compact but without being crammed which enables you to have a pleasant stroll all around with out missing anything. Set in lovely unspoilt grounds even the children's adventure playground blends in nicely as it is mainly wooden climbing frames and slides nestled in the shade of the trees. The restaurant is basic but prices are reasonable, ice creams and drinks don't cost an arm and a leg like comparative attractions. The trip on a miniature train is a must as is the children's farmyard area and the star of the show has to be the playful Asian Small-clawed Otters

Broadway Hill is the 2nd highest point in the Cotswolds and with Broadway Tower being 55ft tall it means when on top you are the highest point. What's nice about Broadway Tower is the three floors have been divided in to different sections depicting different eras of the tower. One floor is dedicated to previous owner William Morris, another gives a more general history of the tower and it's connections with Capability Brown. From the top you can see 12 counties on a clear day and with high upstands you feel totally safe, even if you don't like heights. The staff are very friendly and will tell you more history of the tower, and it also has a nice little gift shops selling all the usual things you would expect, plus a few you wouldn't "Chocolate coated deer droppings!" Set in a lovely location Broadway Tower is lovely for just a short couple of hours visit and on a lovely windy day it is even nicer.

Lovely little gift shop with a nice atmosphere, nice little gifts & cards and nice friendly staff. Set in a lovely old building in Shipston town square, Ivy Heart is perfect for those last minute little traditional gifts, nice wrapping paper and nice cards when you don't want to drive to the bigger towns.

Good old traditional butcher who prepares joints to the customers request. Always friendly and provides helpful advice on the best joints to use if ask what is best for a particular meal. Plenty to choose from and the preparation of chestnut stuffed turkey crowns for Christmas is 2nd to none. Nice selection of traditional sausages and in the better weather also supplies ideal barbeque titbits

Great service, great product, great price. I had been putting off getting a new kitchen but then decided at the last minute to go for it. I called in at Howdens in Stratford on the Tuesday, took a couple of samples home, ordered kitchen on Wednesday and it was delivered on the Friday. One length of worktop and 4 or 5 door fronts were out of stock, but I told them my carpenter was booked in for the following Monday and Tuesday so they did some chasing around and got them to me 1st drop on Tuesday morning from another branch. Very pleased with the finished kitchen, the quality is better than I expected and the price was a good £500 lower than I expected. With the saving I had made I decided to get some up stands to match the worktops and a nice pewter coloured glass splash back for behind the cooker and thankfully these were both in stock and ready for collection. The staff at Howdens were very friendly and helpful, I received a price on the same day I dropped in the initial measurements and they also did me some mock up 3d views and scaled drawings so I was sure I was ordering right kitchen. All in all a very pleasant experience with great assistance from friendly knowledgeable staff.
