I wish the gas prices had stayed at $3.50 so people would have stayed home.
Even at $7.50 in the UK it seemingly doesn't have any effect!
Usually I am not participating in earnings threads, but now I am starting to wonder - what the heck is going on?
I don't SEE a difference, but as my main site has plenty of pages, all I can do is probe here and there. The targeting seems to be unchanges - i.e. for most pages it is very good. No PSAs other than in the usual spots (I have a few pages that AdSense simply refuses to target, but I never really bothered to find out what's wrong).
With regards to the thread topic - I think that something indeed has gone wild with AS. On one hand, Google seem to launch new features and beta products every other day now - on the other hand, they somehow seem to forget about proper communication of all this, especially towards their publisher base.
Just my $0.02
Been scratching my head for two days now wondering why hardly any visitors to my site.
Turns out the reason is that Content ads on adwords has been disabled on two of my biggest campaigns. And, I didn't do it - they are simply not showing.
If other adwords folks are having the same issue then that could be why you are seeing off-targetting and PSAs - there aren't any ads to display.
I'm advertising in the computer techno area.
My adwords campaigns are OK, both the content and search networks are enabled in all campaigns.
I am from Europe, perhaps G messed up some US Adwords campaigns?
Anyways, if Sailors theory is correct, those of us who make some bucks with arbitrage should consider pausing Adwords campaigns for now. And that will make things worse for all Adsense publishers!
