I just experienced _almost_ the same thing. I changed my 250x250 square to a 300x250 rectangle and my ad count went from 3 to 2 on all pages affected. It looked terrible and didn't contribute anything to my test so I removed them, put the square back, and it immediately went back to 3 ads.

On some pages, I have beside the AdLink 2 ad blocks
first 120x600 or 150x600 depending on space in the content area
300x250 in the navigation.
I noticed several times 4 or 5 good targeted ads in the content area, but only 1 ad in very big letters in the 300x250 and less targeted.

If what ou are seeing is not a PSA, it sounds like it is a site-targeted CPM ad.

Hi there -
It sounds like you're seeing expanded text ads. When our technology determines that a larger ad will perform better in a particular space, the larger ad will automatically be shown.
If you'd like more information, please visit this AdSense Support entry:

Hey, AA... I'm pretty sure the ones I saw were standard size, with large (ad-sized) gaps between them. I've seen the expanded ads in several formats so I'm pretty familiar with them.

Jolly_roger - I think these are still probably expanded text ads. They come in a variety of 'looks'. Sometimes, you'll see 1 ad per ad unit, and sometimes you'll see 2 regular-sized text ads in a format that can hold up to 3 ads.
