Slot id stores color, size, font & corners options. If you specify a slot id for the ad you have added, it will get all those settings from the ad you created.

One great advantage of using slot id is that, if you change the colors from Manage Ads panel in  Google Adsense control panel, color scheme will be updated on all ad units using same slot id.

CHANNEL ID

Channel id allows you track reports of your adsense units. Every channel displayed seperately on adsense reports. You can see your top channels on Reports Overview.

It is good practice to use definitive channel names like: w3forunetSidebar OR w3forunetTopBanner.
