Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
Just to see I searched my favorite test phrase, "Log Cabin Quilts" on a Google search and sure enough, the ads on the side were all quilt related. This is totally different from a week or so ago when most of the ads were for log cabin houses. What a great improvement. I hope they pass this on to adsense results soon.
I am in Singapore right now checking on things, and I see maybe 1 ad in skyscrapers on most of my pages. These pages had a lot of good ads in the past.
I hope this is not how everyone is seeing things. Maybe they don't like S'poreians and only want to give them 1 ad per placement.........
We should be able to set a threshold before alternate ads come up, like we want at least 3/4 or 3/5 to show up or go over to alternate ads. 1 ad per page is garbage. Get it together already.
When I see a Google's mail on my mailbox I:
1st: piss my pants because the "invalid clicks mail paranoia"
2nd: read the email and I discover new features, new advantages, new improvements...
3rd: check my stats to see how my incomes are going down

I agree that half empty ad boxes look petty bad. I wish we had th option to have the ad boxes collapse to fit around the ads that are shown even if there is just one.
I had a feeling that was the case, that advertisers are not showing ads for Singapore.
Two very high traffic pages of mine that are similar in content (overall theme) show only 1 ad per page here (the same ad actually). I truly hope that this is not the case other places! I don't quite know my stats for the past week, as I am not about the log into adsense form another IP over here and double my chances of invalid clicks, but i am hoping that the numbers have been similar to past days.
It is interesting to see what shows up in other parts of the world, sometimes it is good, and often not so good.
My site gets a large number of international visitors, Europe, NA / SA and Asia are the big three, Africa and Mid East is lacking in traffic, but It was interesting and disturbing to see the geotargeting with my ads. Many pages had 1 or 2 ads in singapore, and they are full in America. I want to start doing some adsense promoting overseas to get my ad spaces filled!
