AdSense: Ad Review Center has gone mad!
Influx of unrelated advertisers targeting my website

I decided to post this now that it's been four days and nothing has changed. When I check my ad reveiew center for targeted ads, I'm getting 12 or more new advertisers UNRELATED to my website (teeth whitening, spa treatments, etc.), each day. I'm spending a lot of time checking and blocking these ads from showing. Is anyone else seeing this since Nov. 1, or is it my issue?

I only have two channels for targeted ads, and there's not too many in my list. Those ads are also in line with my site topic.

It's talked about on the Known Issues page: https://www.google.com/adsense/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=92365&sourceid=aso&subid=ww-en-et-asblog_2010-11-15&medium=link

FWIW, when this came up a few days ago, I changed my settings to not allow any ads from all these 3rd party networks.

I haven't noticed any changes to the ads I typically see on my sites and I haven't noticed any changes in my revenue/numbers.

---------------------

It's easy to go with what AdSense tells us and assume that having more advertisers bidding will result in more money for us - but that's only true if one or more of these new advertisers are willing to bid more than the advertisers who were there first.

Yup, me too.

Ads that are 3 - 4 years out of date.

A problem for me is that some of these ads are from companies that are also running current ad campaigns that show on my site, and that I want to run.

That leaves me with the choice of doing nothing or spending the time to go thru the list and mark those campaigns as "block this campaign only > other > and then input "ads out of date" as a reason.

I dunno if that helps or not.

Let's say the ad is for www.domain.com
how do i know if the ad is new or old, since the domain is there anyway...

I got a request yesterday for an ad for Halloween cookies! There is definitely something wrong.

Sometimes you do know because of the text like " sale 2008".

levo;

As the last few posts in this thread indicate, the problem has come back for some publishers.

The problem is back for me also. I had about three or four days where everything was fine.
