Just to see what would happen I hit refresh on the page, and google Adsense premium ads appeared in the skyscraper instead of the image skyscraper that was there a minute ago.
I hit refresh again and the image skyscraper came back and the horizontal banner turned into Adsense ads.
Now these Adsense ads were of the premium variety and instead of the "ca-pub..." client string in the url they had "ca-fastclick...".
I wonder if Fastclick is the only ad serving company that has included Adsense in their mix....
This is a little obscure if you serve 468X60 from fastclick and then Adsense you can end up with two lots of adsense showing. One from Google and one from fastclick......
Having 2 lots of Adsense is against the rules....
Makes you all confused....

Interesting... do you know what CPM was offered?
I queried Google about competing text ads right after being accepted into AdSense. The reply pointed to the Adsense policy page, but went on to indicate that it was okay to display text ads which are clearly marked and differentiated from Google AdWords.
"If you already display Google AdWords ads on your pages via an ad network, you can still join AdSense and run ads on your site through our program. However, you cannot display more than one set of AdWords ads on the same web page. This constitutes double-serving, which Google does not support.
It's your responsibility to work out any contractual issues that may arise with your ad network as a result of serving AdWords ads directly."
I believe Fastclick is one of the so called "ad network" that "display AdWords ads on your pages." So I think there won't be a problem as long as you don't put both Fastclick and Adsense banners or skyscrapers on the same page.
