    I get warnings about the number of ads above the fold on my Adsense sites, and sometimes I get my ad serving disabled for having
    more than 30% of the "above the fold" real estate taken up with ads.

    OK, but when it comes to search results on Google how come they have 9 Google ads above the fold and ZERO organic results.

    Google is supposed to be about the "user experience", so if ads are plastered all over their pages how come its not ok for me?
    They are the same ads, but when they display a full page of ads its "a good user experience" but for me its a TOS violation!!!!

    I just got to call b*ll sh*t on this one.

    I see they are now reducing the top 10 organic results to only 5, the rest is ads,
    How soon will they reach 0 organic results on the 1st page

    The CTR must be going through the roof, But for advertisers, The investment must be starting to look bad.

    Yes its strange because I thought that Google got the majority of its income from Adsense.
    It seems like we need to stay flexible and adjust our business plans quite often.
