Google is killing off Adsense?
I just got this email today:
We’re writing to let you know about some important changes that will be happening to AdSense on Google Sites. Starting on August 30th, it will no longer be possible to make updates to AdSense on your Google Site.
Any ads that you currently have running will not be altered or removed. However, it will no longer be possible to edit or add new ads to your existing site or new pages.
This change does not require any action on your part and will not affect the current implementation of ads on your site.
To read more details about this change, please visit the help page.

You have received this mandatory email service announcement to update you about important changes to AdSense on your Google Sites account.
So I went to the Adsense website and I got this terse notice:
Some important changes are coming to AdSense on Google Sites. By August 30, 2013, it will no longer be possible to make updates to AdSense on any of your Google Sites.
No change is required on the part of AdSense users. Any ads that you currently have running will not be altered or removed, though you’ll be free to delete ads yourself. However, it will no longer be possible to edit or add new AdSense ads to your existing site or to new pages.
There is no other explanation. There is no indication of what if anything will replace it. Inquiring minds want to know!
