AdSense inside the first post v1.4 - AdSenseExperts.com Exclusive
This is another AdSense implementation for your vBulletin 4.0 Forum. This placement is exclusively released for AdsenseExperts.com. You are allowed to use this placement on your own forum, however republishing this modification on other website is only allowed with prior written consent by me.
What this mod does:
This mod adds a Google Adsense large rectangle inside the first post of each thread. It is blended to complement your forum content but is clearly labeled as Ad to strictly separate Ads from content. This approach is taken for the reasons discussed here: Is too much blending bad for business?
Make sure you use the same colors as you use on your forum to optimize blending!
If you use this AD implementation make sure you also try: AdSense inside the last post - AdSenseExperts.com Exclusive
This mod shows the AD only to GUESTS!
If you want to show it to your members as well remove the "AND $show['guest']" condition!
in the template additional.css add:
If you are also want to use my AdSense inside the last post - AdSenseExperts.com Exclusive implementation then you need to use this code instead of the above (css remains the same):
Demo: See this Thread
v1.4: Changed the CSS for bbcode behaviour to not conflict in nested codes.
v1.3: Changes to get it to work with 4.1.10+
v1.2: floatspacer was removed due to ad overlapping text in older browsers. Code Optimization.
v1.1: added a float_spacer so that the text flows around the AD
v1.0: initial release
Of course feedback is welcome and if you have suggestions to further improve CTR please let me know!
ps: Older Versions of this mod are attached as txt file for reference. It is not recommended to use older versions.

Hi, you can't ask people to ask you for autorization to implement a div float right, it's too funny, you have no copyright on any ad placement :-)
Anyway, it was just a comment on the funny side of your text, but I have a question is why do you translate ANZEIGE as DISPLAY ?
It should be ADVERTISEMENT, no? DISPLAY simply looks strange and doesn't explain anything in english as to the nature of the sponsored links below.

In German the word "Anzeige" is used for Advertisings as well.
I used "Adverts" for this English version.
However you are free to change the text Adverts to any text you find appropriate.
The copyright notice is for the whole modification.
There are many vBulletin modification sites copying my AdSense Modifications and
releasing them on their forum. I don't want that for the exclusive releases I made for
AdSenseExperts.com unless I give them permission.
I know you can't really copyright CSS styling but it is a friendly reminder to at least
be polite and ask me for permission.

Ah ok, I thought you were talking about someone wanting to use your ad placement on a site. But in fact you mean a webmaster wanting to copy and paste your article on his site, this is understandable yes.
About the word DISPLAY I'm talking about your exemple here:
To all newcomers: Welcome
Perhaps it's because I have a browser in english, but I see the word DISPLAY on the top right above the ads.

I just released the new Version 1.1 of my AD
Implementation inside the first post.
I added a float_spacer which lets the text flow
around the AD which makes it even more blend
in with the content.
Thanks to JamesColin for the Idea

CTR went up more then 300% (still below 2% though) and eCPM went up 350%.
I compared a time frame of 12 days for this comparison.
It is not very representative but that suggestion was gold
Thanks again JamesColin.
What this shows is that you never should stop optimizing your ADs.
And even a small change can mean a lot more money!
That is what AdSenseExperts.com is all about
So if you are using version 1.0 I strongly suggest you upgrade to version 1.1
Before the float_spacer:
after the float_spacer:

Is it perhaps possible to add the float spacer (So that the text flows) at the adsense code itself, and not in the CSS?
I am using digitalpoint's hack for this as yours unfortunately does not work for me. I have BBCode notices in some of my posts and when I have these inside a first post the add overlaps the notice.
I hope you understand what I want to do. At this stage the add is placed in a random place in the first post, and I centered it. But I would like to get the same affect yours have. Thanks.CreativX - Specializing in custom designed Windows 7 & 8 Themes.

That is why
Please register to see this code!
With bbcode present the text with the quote will start below the Ad.
There should be a similar css definition for code.
My guess would be: div.bbcode_code
