Adsense - Hexidecimal chart for deciding colours of ads

click to enlarge
When you're ready to add Google Adsense ads to your blog, you should create custom colour palettes so that the ads will blend in with your site - but not in a way that would mis-lead a visitor to think that they weren't adverts.

When creating an ad unit, you need to choose a colour for background, ad title, ad text, border & URL. The above hexidecimal colour chart should come in handy for this.

Creating a custom colour pallette
  1. Login to your Google Adsense account.
  2. Click on the 'Adsense Setup' tab.
  3. Click on 'colour pallettes.'
  4. Choose colours for background, ad title, ad text, border & URL. (see below)

Tips & Tricks
I rarely have a border around my text ads. To have no border on your ads, you will need to select the same colour as your background on your blog. Have a strong colour for your ad's title. I like red on a light background.
