Adsense only shows PSA's anymore



1:41 pm on Oct 5, 2004 (gmt 0)

Does someone has a clue what might be causing all my google ads on almost every page on my site to display only PSA's anymore?
If it were all pages, then I maybe could think google banned me or something, but a few still have normal ads.
Normally the PSA's just come sometimes on some of the pages, and now there everywhere all the time.

Well, I'm getting PSA's only on my Home Page for 3 weeks now :( But other pages are fine. Also there was a blackout in AdSense yesterday - I couldn't see any of my ads at all in IE and MyIE/Maxthon.

It's happening again - IE doesn't show the AdSense ads and I can see them just fine in Mozilla.

I get only PSA's as well on my main site, forums etc. is ok...i wrote google about it, here's the answer:

"Thank you for following up with us. It appears that you are getting public service ads because of geo-targeting issues. Specifically, because you are
viewing your site from Denmark.

The Google AdSense program draws ads from our AdWords program to display on your web pages. Although the number of advertisers in the AdWords program is continually growing, we may currently have only a limited number of ads that are targeted toward your content and your country. This may result in less than the full number of ads being displayed, a reduced
rotation of ads, or public service ads.

Because advertisers can choose which countries they would like to display their ads, there may be a shortage of ads for your particular site content
and for your country. Please note that we are able to see targeted ads because we are viewing them from the United States, and any of your site visitors stationed from the U.S. will see targeted ads. We appreciate your understanding in this matter and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused."
