I just received a link request and when I got there I noticed what appeared to be contextual advertising. Thinking it might be a new player in my area I went to check it out. Turns out it was adsense. I thought maybe they had figured a way to hide the text but I couldn't find anything. Then I checked the source for the Adsense JavaScript to find that this part was missing
<a href="http://services.google.com/feedback/abg?url=http://www.example.com/&hl=en&client=ca-pub-XXXXX&adU=www.example.com &adU=example.com&adU=www.example.com&adU=example.com&adU=www.example.com&exp=Ads+by+Goooooooogle&done=1" target="_blank"><script><!--
nw='#000000';nw=nw.slice(1);if('')document.write('<img border=0 align=right height=13 width=13 src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/'+nw+'_new_ico.gif" alt=""/>');//--></script><font style="font-size:11px" face="arial,sans-serif" color="#000000">Ads by Goooooogle</font></a>

Is this something the webmaster figured out how to do or something Google is testing?

Is it possible that they're a Premium Publisher? For them, special rules apply!

I know a guy that's a premium publisher. His site still shows "ads by google". (no, he's not a fresh premium publisher)

You might to want to cut and paste the code in an email to adsense-abuse@google.com.....I think that is right, check it out on Googles site before using that email. Maybe someone else has a better memory than I?

From Googles webmaster guide:

If you believe that another site is abusing Google's quality guidelines, please report that site at [google.com...] Google prefers developing scalable and automated solutions to problems, so we attempt to minimize hand-to-hand spam fighting. The spam reports we receive are used to create scalable algorithms that recognize and block future spam attempts.

If that is the source from the AdSense javascript, it is nothing that the publisher can manipulate.

I did not mean that no premium publisher has the text "Ads by Google", but some don't.

As Jenstar says, this isn't something that publishers can normally manipulate (at least not within the limits of my technical knowledge!), so I assumed it would have to be something else; "premium publisher" was the only thing that came to mind.

They may be a premium publisher, but not on the basis of this site. I doubt if they would have gotten permission since they seem to be doing it to blend the ads in (hide) more effectively. When premium publishers get permission to remove Ads by Google the ads still must be labeled as advertisements, right?

I'm pretty sure I've seen premium publisher ads that are not labeled at all that do not have the "ads by google" link.
