Perhaps it's just me, but twice now I've seen my Adsense Ads with a border. This happened on two different domains.

What is strange, is that I did not make any changes to the ads and I originally set them up without a border. In both cases, they go back to borderless ads if I refresh. If I refresh again, it won't happen and seems to be simply by chance that I'm catching it.

Anyone else noticing this?

And I thought my revenue decreased because of the holiday :)

Ha. I'm seeing it all over the place. Not only that, despite my settings to the contrary, I also see it trying to put other ad shapes and sizes into certain ad units. And I also see it trying to take ad units from the footer (which is on the bottom) and occasionally put them in upper page ad units. I just assumed all of this was a bug in the AdSense code. but yeah, its been happening for a few weeks now, so likely it is testing.

You know this is odd. Probably a couple months ago in the Ad Review Center, Certified Ad networks, there was a network called "Google Test"? It's gone now, it was definitely there, but there are other unusual networks:

Google Display Network: Reserve
Google: Teracent Corporation

Perhaps one of these is a renamed Google Test network? They are block-able as was "Google Test".

I didn't block "Google Test" nor have I seen borders, BUT, I have had an inexplicable step decline in earnings since Oct 14th.

I see the blue borders too, especially when I was working on my design and did a lot of refreshing. Also sometimes the font changes ..

After a quick test with the old code I still saw the borders and (sometimes now) font changes so I don't think that's why it's hitting some sites.

Just noticed a blue border on my ads, just popped up once and went back to my colour scheme again. Have also noticed font changes from time to time and those arrows sometimes change colour. I use an off-white background so that they are a subtle grey instead of a bright blue. I wish they'd stop messing around, things are bad enough as it is.
