    Look at the source code and see if it's the same that you inserted on your page, follow the image source see if it comes from Google.

    Hello Dzi,


    Guess what, I was browsing the net today and by pure coincidence landed on a site that experienced the same thing as you, and like you said, it's random.

    I guess, "G" is testing.

    Don't worry!

    Testing something.... icky. Not that I'd suddenly get all uppity, start a petition, or write letters of protest based on just a test.. but I can say that as a publisher, I wouldn't really want Google's (or anyones) logo appearing in a text based ad. Defeats the purpose of "text-based", for one. For another, as a publisher I like to advertise for advertisers, not for the ad network itself.

    Hopefully, this won't become a mainstream thing.
