Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Pharm sites have been out (with the same real ad once in a while phenomenon) for about 72 hours now.
anybodys guess really. I did get an 'adsense is down for maintenance' message for all of two minutes the day before yesterday... who knows.
It's not so much that the ads are ugly in general, it is just that they do no fit into many site's color schemes. Why not use the color schemes we have already developed that work with our individual sites? Sometimes I question Google's logic. On a pleasant note, I'm sure the noneprofits are getting a nice boost in traffic :). It also seems a bit two-sided that Google sees fit to be showing all of our visitors these PSA's right now but they are keeping their search ads blank.
Something is screwy in Googleville.
