Yes, same here. It was 2 until morning for me, I don't check too often but after reading here I went and check some of my pages with the ad layout and the good ones are showing 4 again. I also have some pages short of content, these are showin 3 Ads, but looks like the 2 Ads experiment is over by now.

yeah me too.
Most are showing 4 ads, and sometimes 3 ads.
But they look MUCH MUCH better than 2 ads already.
Lets see how would it affect our earnings again.

Oh - I wish! I'm down to one ad in a huge block at the moment. However, when the USA wakes up that usually changes.
My opinion on the expanded ads flips between like and dislike. I don't like the clonky format of the ads, but they do seem to improve the bottom line $$. However, I personally think that seeing the same two ads all the time is a bit tedious, and can't help wondering if a bit of rotation between advertisers and flipping the format between expanded and non-expanded as the visitor moves between pages would be a better proposition.

I am in the middle of rebuilding the mother ship and started seeing those beautiful ads. It's good to see them back.

Lordy, I'd just given up on rectangle ads and converted my whole site to skyscrapers! :o

YES! CTR, eCPM increasing. Almost back to normal.

Jen had posted something on her blog ... I was wondering why earnings increased today ... and now I know.
I wonder why Google switched back?
All I have to say is, "Thank you for changing back."
