Ugly Ads

doesn't get uglier than this

My 250x250 ads got so ugly in the last 3-4 hours.
Most of them contain only 2 links.

What the heck is going on? Is Google losing advertisers to Yahoo and other competititors or what?

I can confirm I'm also seeing the same thing. My leaderboard ad on my home page which usually lists 4 links, is currently showing 1 link. However other pages under this are showing the full 4 links.

Mind you, the home page is a summary of my site, whereas the child pages are content specific, and all run the same leaderboard ad type.

Perhaps G are tightening up the targetting of content based ads?

I don't know zaq,

Although I am glad it doesn't happen just to me, I hope I get my 4 links back on 250x250 ads.

Same situation here. They should take the dynamic resizing away.
