Right now I'm seeing PSA's on every Adsense sites I visit. I'm also not seeing any ads on the Google search site. Can anyone else confirm?

Seeing the same on my site, although if I refresh enough times, I do get some real ads once in a while.

PSAs confirmed on multiple sites, both regular and premium publishers are affected.

Same here - just a sporadic adsense ad, except I use a color to replace PSA's.

I get some ads if I refresh several times. Do you suppose some is playing with the magic PSA toggle switch :)

I saw one or two pages with ads now. Then back to PSA's.

I wonder what google is doing.

I'm seeing PSA's on every single site i visit.... Looks like they took adsense down so they could put in the new PSA's

Seems like everyone is in the same boat... and it's not so buoyant.

Pharm sites have been out (with the same real ad once in a while phenomenon) for about 72 hours now.

anybodys guess really. I did get an 'adsense is down for maintenance' message for all of two minutes the day before yesterday... who knows.

ads seem to be coming back for a few seconds then vanishing. I'm seeing totally different ads when it does come back though... Some thing is up

I can sometimes get ads on reload, but not on the first view of the page. Boy, are these new PSAs ugly. I have never had a problem with PSAs, so I never bothered to set up alternative ads. But this will definitely prompt me to.

Not a single real ad on any of my pages. This is absolutly rediculous.

Why are the new PSA's so strange looking? They do not fit in with anything on my site. I take time to ensure that adsense looks good, and then they change these PSA's to stick out like a sore thumb. What is the deal with adense?

I completely agree, Chris. The new PSA's are ugly and really are not a step in the right direction.

Google needs to straighten out their act.

maybe they won't show more than a couple of ads per ip since they probably don't pay for more than 2 or 3 clicks per day per ip (pure speculation). I see ads on about a 1/3 of my pages...quite strange.

I agree,

It's not so much that the ads are ugly in general, it is just that they do no fit into many site's color schemes. Why not use the color schemes we have already developed that work with our individual sites? Sometimes I question Google's logic. On a pleasant note, I'm sure the noneprofits are getting a nice boost in traffic :). It also seems a bit two-sided that Google sees fit to be showing all of our visitors these PSA's right now but they are keeping their search ads blank.

Something is screwy in Googleville.

Still PSA's in Texas. I agree that these PSA are very ugly. Really makes pages look bad when real ads are not present.

All my sites are showing pure PSA's. Almost had a heart attack.
