I've just finished updating all of my wizzes to the new format and boy do they look good.  Whew, that's a lot of wizzing around to get all my wizzes up to Wizard Standards.Tongue out

We else has changed all their wizzes, adding text to the new text module in and around the google Adsense Ads?  What a great opportunity!

I gotta say it again, Atta Admin!

I've only changed over a couple wizzes so far -- but I plan to finish up more tomorrow!   Yes, it's a great opportunity!

Okay check back and share with us when you do.  Lets keep each other motivated.  I did all 75 of mine.  They just look so darn good and the value of it is HUGE Wink

Well done, Katie! I'm about halfway through. I should think it might take a couple more days as I don't get much time for writing at the weekend. It is worth it :)

What are we supposed to be doing to "update to the new format" ?

Yes, I'm clueless.

I've embarked in a similar epic update, but this one is born out of me being a noob. :p

I'm new to this whole monetising your articles malarkey, but fortunately Humagaia has stepped in to give me a few pointers. I've been systematically going through every one of my articles altering how I display the advert modules.

Without counting, I think I've done about 40 out of 60 so far. It's exhausting!

As for the new lay-out, I'm so undecided at the moment. I agree that it looks great with Adsense, so if that was mine, I'd be updating precisely how you are right now.  But it doesn't look so hot with Chitika, as the adverts are bigger. I'm currently experimenting with ways to achieve the same 'content above the fold' goals, but with Chitika.

Congrats everyone who's made it through the Great Update!

I've been doing some editing and stuff like that as well on the rest of the Wizzle.

We have a new format, you'll notice now in the title and article description module there is an additional module to add your text to, this will show up right beside your adsense ads, a very nice strategy.  One I've been waiting to see for some time as it always made sense to my marketing mind.  There's a post in the forum about it.  Very top portion, admin update.

Good Luck

Jo, So true, It will be interesting to see how this works out for you, do keep us posted.

As for everyone else YOU GO GIRLS, notice there's no male wizzes here yet.  Hey boys where are you??? Get jiggy with it!

<-----  male. wizzing. jiggying.

Pam, you don't HAVE to do anything. But if you want to fill the white space next to the top AdSense block, you may now add some intro text---an extended description, so to speak---into a new box provided in the title module (click edit).

That text will appear next to the ad block and thus add more useful content "above the fold".

Just finished - phew!

I basically dropped everything else this weekend to get it all done. So sorry to other Wizzley authors that I haven't been doing the usual round of looking at new pages.

At least with new articles, I'll automatically fill in this extra space while I'm writing.

It definitely looks better for people visiting the page and hopefully if it's better for readers, will also be seen to be better by google!

Time for a well earned tea break now. Where's the butler gone :)

Did a few, but not going to rush around changing stuff.  I will do what I can when I can.  Rather spend my time making new ones.

Okay, Thanks Chef - I will check it out.

I was lucky. I just started here a week ago and only had two wizzles to update when the change was made.  It's funny how I suddenly noticed the white space next to the AdSense ad.  I already see a few bucks in my AdSense report for Wizzley. Didn't expect any earnings that soon. So that new format with the ad block on top must be doing the trick.  Smile
