AdSense offers direct deposit and payment in different currencies
Google AdSense has gone a long way in making plenty of publishers extremely happy, coming hot on the heels of the announcement of the Yahoo Publisher Network (YPN). The new changes could be enough to keep some publishers from trying out the new YPN, that might have considered trying it otherwise.
If you are in one of 15 countries, you now have the option to join the beta payment option of direct deposit. If you reside in one of the supported countries, you just need to login to your AdSense account, and enter your banking information. Currently Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States are the countries supported by this.
Also, AdSense is now offering payments in home currencies to 43 different companies, which include Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, and the United States.
This will save many publishers the high fees they were faced with paying for cashing US dollar checks in their home countries. If you would like your checks in your home currency, you just need to login to your account and specify it.
For the complete run down of all the changes (including the Terms of Service), you can read it here. Other assorted changes include Ad Links, which is a new ad format for publishers, and the fact that Google now allows you to disclose your check amounts. Who wants to go first by announcing how much they made last month ;)

I'm still conufused as to why I'd want to put up an AdLinks box instead of a regular Adsense box.
With AdLinks I'm two click away from revenue, with Adsense just one.

I tried the ad links but removed them after two days. No noticable increase in revenue and a noticable decrease in my CTR. I've been happy with the good old 300x250 so i'll stick with that and work on more content.
