AdSense acting strangely

Problem with Google AdSense

We've been running Adsense for about 3 weeks with no problems, in fact it's been great, but this morning the 2 most popular sections of the site are acting strangely - one is just showing the charity ads, the other shows just 1 ad in the skyscraper, rather than 4.
Every other page of the site seems fine, and we didn't change anything on these 2 sections - any ideas about what could be going on?

I've found that sometimes when the ads show up slowly, I also get charity ads. I suspect that they have some sort of timeout that gives up searching under high load and shows the psa's.

I'm not sure about your situation, though. Is it repeatable still?

Yes, it's repeatable, but I don't think it's a 'slow loading' issue - the ads load fine, and on every other page, except these 2 most popular sections, they are showing correctly. I'm really confused by this.

There's been some discussion of this phenomenon in the AdSense forum:


moved to Adsense forum / thanks
