What do they mean when they said "decided to start showing ads only to visitors coming from SEs." I am interpreting this as ads only to people coming from Search Engines. But even if that is correct...how can you control that?
I expect there's some referrer based script that's running. Show ads if the referrer string is Google | Bing | Yahoo | etc.
But of course that would break down with mobile traffic, because iOS now shows search engine referrals as Direct. (You should see what it did to my Analytics this year now that 70% of my traffic is mobile some days)
So it would be harder to do accurately than it was (and I'm not at all sure it addresses the problem in the first place)
