try tweaking your text ... in my view, they've added a whole new bunch of words to the 'stop words' list. what industry/topic does your site cover?

I am having the same problem on my new website. Any way to find out some of these "stop words"?

Just put AdSense up on my site, no problems here. :)

day 9 and still PSA'S up the ying-yang.

all PSAs all the time (except for a couple of pages on one site, which, inexplicably show perfect ads) - tweaking text has not helped. Unless the stopwords are the same as the ad-trigger words, I got nuthin.

I hadn't seen any PSAs for several days, but now they appear to be on every page of my site (at least where I live). As the saying goes, it's like deja vu all over again.

EPV, seeing PSAs on your site from over here in the UK too. :(
Still waiting for my PSA problem to fix. You know, I just wish the Adsense team would respond to the first e-mail question properly without cutting-and-pasting standard replies. It would save so much time asking for clarifications!

Is this a confirmed problem being worked on? Are there reports by Jenstar or ASA on the issue?

from New York, the site is all well selected content ads (May 1, 5pm EST)

> day 9 and still PSA'S
No offense intended, but don't you think you should have added an alternate HTML page for your sites about 8 days ago?
I have an alt on every site with adsense in case of targeting problems.

I'm not clear on what your advising, Patrick. Can you expound a bit on what you mean by alt HTML page? Thx

Google has been allowing adsense publishers to insert the URL of an alternative page (html) if the adsense bot can't find adverts for a page for several months now (november I think).
If you go to the generate code layout section it is there.
All you need to do it make a little page that displays something in the same format & size as your adsense - be sure to make the link "target=_blank" because otherwise people will be stuck viewing the contents of the link's destination through the tiny inline frame of the adsense advert.

Is your site controversial or so niche that nobody advertises there? If ads show on some pages, what makes those pages different? Dp they show PR but the others don't?
I get ads to show within a day or two (haven't really studied it deeply).

For the past 8 to 9 days, almost purely PSAs and untargeted ads. CTR reduced to near 0%.
Here's a good example. The keyword is men's health and I'm getting ads for yeast infections and women's health!
Hey, traffic has been good though. Hope that keeps rising and google gets things straightened out soon.
It sure has been a lot of income gone down the drain.
