I haven't seen this before. I've got a 468x60 unit below the first paragraph on the page, which has two regular ads with title and description. Those I want - those 2 ads.

Now there are 4 additional links showing up underneath, left justified and just to the left of the little "Ads by Google" logo. - not regular ads, but (JS) text links using keyword phrases as anchor text.

Those I don't want; besides, if that's what the 468x60 will look like, it should be indicated in the Adsense interface. I feel like I've had a bait and switch pulled, and that I'm being spammed with text links by Google Adsense.

What are those?

Thank you moTi, I didn't realize that the Google Adsense ad format bait and switch SEO spam was the topic of that thread.
