It's really not nice, not knowing. I have doubts about it being the ads, largely because I have 1 ad on the pages that are hit. All pages that use the same page layout, have been hit, minus a handful. We're talking tens of thousands of pages.
The reason I am doubting ads, is because nearly all of the SERPs, have several ads. One has 7 plus popups. If it were ads, I cannot imagine those with a single ad, being hit.
Unless it's down to placement of the ads.
Or as you say, it could be something else entirely. I'd love to see the data Google has on my site, and see what it is, that they don't like. Because I've not breached any rules, it's an aged domain, 1 ad per page max, natural links etc etc.
I do know that it's driving me slowly insane though. I'm tweaking like crazy, looking for any slight possible problem and yet knowing, it's likely I'm not going to find it.
