I don't think this is the real culprit for our earnings to drop. IMHO I believe it's smart pricing that has been causing most publishers earnings to drop in the past few months.

Most publishers? Is this a scientific survey?
To the TS, have you contacted Google about it? Can they tell you the day it was removed? Then you can check your stats.

I did contact Google, and they did confirm that the "Advertise on this site" had been removed to provide a better user experience.
But they did not tell me when. (It's fairly recent since they have not updated the help section)

The "Advertise On This Site" link was misleading to potential advertisers. It should have read "Advertise with AdWords"
If AdSense isn't going to offer the opportunity to actually advertise specifically on the site, it should have been removed.

I had to go and look, as it was just there a few days ago.
I'm assuming it will be removed from our reporting interface then?
This is a perplexing move.
It never really converted for me anyway though.

Though not always I also have seen that link gone.
