Been an adsense publisher for quite a few years now.

Today adsense is not displayed on any sites. I have checked messages and last one was three days ago saying that they'd looked at my main site and 34 pages were not showing as many ads as they could. No other warning messages or emails.

Should I just sit tight or should I contact Google? Or should I try the Google adsense forum?

Have adsense on a wide variety of sites. They do not have any scraped or spam content. It's all written by me, no forums no user generated content. I'm extremely careful not to click on my own ads and don't tell other people about them in case they decide to click to "help me out".

Just to add a couple of further questions. If there is a problem that I'm not aware of is it likely they will let me put it right or is it likely I'm banned for good?

I'm having the exact same problem, and have spotted another thread like this on a different site saying the same. At the moment im thinking its a google issue. Hopefully

Just checked yesterday's metrics and they're well out of sync with my logs with Pager Views at around 60% and looking more like a poor weekend day.

Yet another foul-up, they're doing well this year aren't they?

Just heard from Adsense that there is an Adsense bug which is being corrected [no eta for a fix yet] and many sites have been affected including all our sites.

We can relax and wait for it to come back - we've not been disabled... phew.

I went to Adsense forum and posted but nothing helpful has come up yet.
Unfortunately Roycerus hasn't yet come back yet and informed us of his source.
There seems to be half a dozen of us with this problem. Guess I need to bite the bullet and contact Goog from the form on the adsense control panel. Wish me luck!

Well, for the first time ever I've used the "report an issue" link. However it only takes you to a feedback form that says "we might get back to you"

I've also submitted a question via the adsense help section. The automated reply says they should be abck to me in 24 hours. Will keep you posted.

Just another Google bug, I wonder if it's related to the CTR bug amongst other issues I have with these bozos?

It was verbal confirmation from Adsense directly. Don't worry, I'm sure it'll be fixed soon.

Going by my numbers I reckon this has been down for a good 10 hours, excellent Google, your profits increase whilst my earnings diminish to the point for me wondering why the hell I bother with you any more...ah, I know why, you have absolutely zero competition in my sector therefore you can screw me as much as you like and I have absolutely no alternative other than to launch my own ads.

If you think I'm pi$$ed off you're damned well right, time for an appointment with my local MEP.

I really like the timing of this. Yesterday they announce the new ads-to-content ratio algorithmic change and at the same day, the bug appears. This is adding to the uncertainty.
