    Has anyone heard of the AdSense Advisory Council before?

    It seems some publishers are being invited to join it to help shape AdSense.

    LOL - hehe, does sound a little bizarre - but it's actually serious. The email came from a reliable source who wouldn't make this up.

    I've never seen Google ask for anything like this by email before - its always been a checkbox on the website for which the user is registering. Not that that necessarily means this is fake, just slightly unusual.

    Darren,

    This seems to be legit, I got one of these emails from Google in February 2006 on their beta advisory council. :)

    This looks legit - Google generally sends email via when requesting feedback.

    As I posted in your comment section, Darren, it sounds legit. The email address is in usual Google-form. It would also be difficult to just email the top earners/contributors, without spamming everyone else. The email also doesn't ask for any more info than just you returning that statement.

    No idea - seems to be publishers who have significant traffic/earnings.

    yeah looks legit. I did a quick google for that email and look what i found some new info on PSA ads :D

    http://www.google.com/services/charity_ads.html

    and this page says;

    I didnt know PSA ads are more than the usual hurricane ads. There are other formats. Check the above link.

    Reps appreciated!
