One of the PSAs was volunteermatch.org. I believe the other one I saw was for March of Dimes.
What's up with this? They have never mixed PSAs with paying ads before. Also, when they do this, there is no way to run your alternate ad.
Check and see by rightclicking on them to see if there is a tracking number after adclick? I think PSAs do not have anything after adclick?
I ran into the same thing a couple of days ago when I put a link in my homepage asking for donations to the March of Dimes.
There are companies that bid on words like donation and donating... maybe even charity.
I find it a little frustrating because what's the point of having alternative ads if G is still going to populate the banners with PSAs.
I think they should have the ability of showing PSAs for those that do not set up alternate, but I think it is webmaster's choice deciding, which charities if any we will support.
I didn't realize the solid color would replace both empty spaces and PSAs. I thought they were just for when it was all PSAs and I have replacement ads for that. I'll have to try it now on the pages that tend to come up short on ads now and then.
