I'm glad to hear that it's not just me. I'm flooded with PSAs today.

(that's the best thing about this forum - knowing you're not alone)

I don't know if its related but today i'm missing a massive amount of clicks and revenue. I have a bad day once in a while, have an awful day every now and again but today is in a different league to anything I have had before.

even GG SERPS are not showing Ads sometimes today. Something is broken in the plex I think. I even took a look at EFV website which ia very good player and saw 90% PSAs.

I'm getting lots of blank spaces - cause I don't do PSA's. I came to see if anyone else was seeing it - and you are!

Likewise. Suddenly, all PSA's. I wonder if this has been happening on and off for a week or so. Our revenue has been down significantly for the past week?

At first we thought it was because we just regenerated and uploaded the whole site. Thought we "broke something". Glad to hear we didn't.

My revenue has been consistant for the week (and month), however, I am seeing 3% of normal revenue and clicks today.

Today, I am also getting LOTS OF Public Service Ads and I never had them this many in the past! In fact, in the past, I can't even remember when I saw PSA last time on my website!

I'm seeing nothing but PSA for hurricane relief at the moment.

Pages which normally show three well targeted ad blocks are showing one PSA and two blanks.

Odd thing is on some of those pages I'm getting highet than normal click through rates, but of course I'm not earning for those clicks. I guess the novelty of the PSAs are making people click on them.

Yes, same here. My link units seem to work fine, however. Can anyone verify?

Yep.... a large number of PSA's today. My CTR was very low yesterday as well.

what's going on. It's almost 5:30pm and I made $33...this is the lowest i've seen in 2 months...all i have is Hurricane Relief ads!

My link units are doing fine too - it's just my other ads which are mostly text_image format

I am a hurricane victim, so maybe the PSA's are not a bad deal?

Thread merge called for? Adwords Outage [webmasterworld.com], or maybe just more reading than usual needed by most of the usual adsense posters. ;)

Glad I'm not alone.

What is going on?

We are seeing the same thing with the PSA's. Right now that is all we have.

One thing I'll note that is interesting is that we began to notice some problems on Wednesday. On that day, our ads were not listing as many links as they usually do. It seemed to mostly clear up on Thursday, and now its all PSAa.

Maybe China does not like Adsense?

No PSAs here, but earnings down by 21% than normal.
Observed PSA on many MFA sites though!
Interesting.

I'm along with all of you in the boat with the PSA'S. I have a couple of pages with ads, but I'd say 80% of the site is PSA except for pages which I'm using link units (which are very, very few). Yes, something must be wrong at the Plex as I've noticed no ads at all when doing a normal search. Hopefully this will pass soon - I was having a great month.

All adlinks, when clicked, say "sorry, we have no ads to display on this topic" so clearly there is a major problem going on.

Has Google said anything about the problem?
