One site is not displaying any ads at all, others fine

Anyone else having problems with ads not displaying? I have 10 sites running ads at the moment, and they're all fine except for one site, which is showing no ads on two pages out of three total, including the home page. Can't see anything else wrong (and it was working fine yesterday, with lots of clicks) No messages in my account, and all the other sites (and the one working page) are fine.

Yes. Reports indicate a serious lack of Adsense impressions today on my site, and yet other sources indicate real traffic as normal. I wonder if the Adsense server has had some difficulties?

What I'm seeing is dead on for what I would normally expect to see on a Wednesday. I'm not particularly liking it but it does look pretty normal.

My earnings are fine for all the other sites - it's just the one that wasn't showing any impressions at all. So I looked in the logs, and there's been plenty of traffic. So I looked at the site, and there's just blank holes where the ads should be. Fortunately the design is such that it doesn't look bad (albeit a little heavy on the white space) but... I want my ads. And the one page is running them just fine. All the pages are formatted exactly the same, the code is there in the source, and they all use the same php include to serve the ads. So it's gotta be on the Google end.

Meg: Check your content for possible "stop words". It's possible Google has disabled that site because of your content. This has happened to me several times over the years, all times I removed or changed the offending text and contacted Google, and they got ads going again on the site within hours.
Sometimes these words are hard to find, and it may be a "misunderstanding", a word on your page innocently, that was misinterpreted by the Google filters.
