Right now I'm seeing PSA's on every Adsense sites I visit. I'm also not seeing any ads on the Google search site. Can anyone else confirm?

Winfreecash,

When you wrote them, how did you phrase it?
Just curious. Did you mention just the psa
issue or did you also mention poor targeting?

Are other people still seeing much lower impressions than usual? (by like half)

I am going crazy thinking my sites are having problems displaying ads. Am I trying to fix a problem that doesn't exists?...is it them?

My impressions have been very stable overall for the last month, with only a couple of low end days, which is normal for me.

New one for a site of ours... PSA's on home page only for the last few hours. The topic for all pages are pretty much the same so I mostly see the same ads on internal pages as the home page, which are showing typical good ads, so it's not an inventory problem. No changes to the home page in months...
Any ideas?

I'm seeing PSAs on a couple of pages that have never had them in four months, and there's no way they should. Hurts big time, too, since I use Adwords to get traffic.

Someone noted that looksmart is an adsense publisher. I noticed today many Looksmart pages showing nothing but PSAs.
