Did Google Shoot Their Foot?

Aword impressions appear to be down? Am I alone?

I signed up for adwords and adsense and have been runing both about a month.

Adsense can't make sense of what the test site page is about. Plenty of text, but it still can't figure it out. So, adsense just presents the public service ad. Not so impressive. Maybe I need to act more like a directory for it to make sense of the page.

Adwords for my target phrases has very low impressions compared to what I recall it having last year before all the changes. No clicks yet. Test site target adwords are in the form of 'state profession' and 'city state profession' etc. Just not much impression traffic. Is the word getting out about Google results and causing searchers to look elsewhere? Or is my test page results (low impressions using adwords) unusually low for some other reason?

This is a serious question. Please unload your weapons before firing. :--) Thanks...

You might be better to post in the adwords section, Shak and the others guys might be able to help.

Adwords is going through a difficult phase at the moment, with new products being launched, etc.

As for Adsense, I get the same thing occassionally, even for heav text (500 word+) pages. Maybe google are just being charitable....
