The Google AdSense forum has started publishers complaining that their AdSense ads are no longer showing on their websites. There seem to be hundreds, if not thousands, of ailments starting this morning or last night.
I don’t see a response from Google yet and I’m not sure if this is a bug or some kind of quality adjustment by publishers. Personally, I can see AdSense ads on a few websites including the one ad unit I have on this website.
There are also complaints about this on Twitter and other social networks. Again, I didn’t see a word from Google about it, but here’s a screenshot of just some of the complaint threads:
Again, I see probably over 1,000 complaints on hundreds of threads about ads not loading or showing on their websites.
Do you have any problems?

Update 3: Google sent us this statement: “It was a minor bug that affected a very limited number of AdSense publishers.
