I have 300×250 ads in my site too. One tips that I can add is to put an image near the ads to improve the CTR. See my site Adsense Cheats

Additionally, you can place image near the adsense ads to improve the click through rate.

Yea I am aware of that trick. But it does not work for 300×250 very well. If it appears deceptive, Google may consider it against their TOS, so got to be a little careful.

I also like the idea of using “chameleon” type ads that change color each time the page is loaded.

This is a good way to combat ad-blindness in repeat visitors.
