To my knowledge, we hardly show any PSAs. New pages get site-wide ads a few seconds after uploading; and these pages get targetted ads a few minutes after they become live.
So the 20% you are quoting -- in our case at least where PSA is 0-1% -- could be considered a significant aberration.

I'm right there with alika.

I don't think I've ever seen a PSA on my site, so 20% PSAs wouldn't be normal for me. Whether it's normal overall is hard to say; in any case, averages are meaningless since different topics and subtopics will perform differently.
Is your site new? If so, you may see better targeting after it's been around a while.

Nope, the site in question has been around for 8+ years, and has been showing AdSense since July.
Experienting with layout and looking for "trigger" words has no effect. I've contacted Google before but got a somewhat canned response. I may gatyher more data and try them again.

I have about 8% of PSA accoring to the stats of alternate ads. I am using CJ.com for alternate. Many of the pages w/ PSA, I think, were not visited for a long time and haven't been visited by Media bots. I think the visits by users trigger the mediabots' visits.

My site is very new to google but I have found I get PSAs on only pages with non-content pages (such as the about us page, contact info page etc...).
I put cj.com as my alternative and tried to find some merchants who cater to my client...
I dont really expect too much revenue from the alt ad though
