Ads gone wild?!?!

Ads from Google seem to have gone nut, and have NO relevancy to my content!

Okay... I noticed that yesterday, the ads placed on my home page have
NOTHING to do with my content. It has been perfectly fine for a long
time. I've been with AdSense for years.


The ads should be about pets, reptiles, bearded dragons, or related
stuff. But I'm college educational programs, UCSD banner ads (nice to
see my alma mater, but not relevant), Jet Blue, AAA, Chicago Equity.

#*$!? Has Google AdSense lost it's mind?

The only significant change to the content of that page was an
addition of an article summary about a pet shop burning down.

Consequently, I've seen the performance of the Google ads on that page
drop massively. Note, that if you click it and you see a non-Google
ad, I do rotate time slices for different ad sources.

Is anyone else seeing this? I've sent a support message to them, but I find that takes a while for a response sometimes. *sigh*

Not yet, but I am planning to. When Google emailed me back, things seemed to have been fixed. I still plan to go through much of the content to add hints and clean it up a bit (technically).
