Blank AdSense Ads Spotted

Have you noticed a Google AdSense ad that reads “Blank Test Ad” lately?

What the purpose of the ad? Is it a marketing ploy or a real ad test?

Here’s how the ad looks like.

Try putting in an ad banner in place of the blank banner in your adsense panel, and see if you see it again.
