    Just did a search and am many seeing different affiliate adwords ads pointing to the same domain. Some are identical URLS as well.

    It had been posted on the WebmasterWorld forum
    by some that the changes would be implemented
    on the 12th, but there has been nothing official
    from Google.

    5 day old article about the upcoming changes:

    "Affiliates are an important part of our third-party ecosystem. They bring users to valuable content and drive traffic to our merchant partners," Kamangar said. "We need to balance the positives they bring with the negatives of users seeing the same ads over and over. Our focus is on maintaining the quality of the ads."

    Here's another article about it, including some words from Kellie:

    The author seems to think that the changes took place a week ago. The rumor is that they could take place as soon as today.

    I think the changes took place last night. I am noticing my adsense ads seem more relevant and are not repeated.

    The changes haven't taken effect yet. I'm still
    seeing many duplicate display urls. I have
    heard on the WebmasterWorld forums that the
    changes are supposed to take effect today at
    12PM, don't know what time zone that would be
    though, and nothing official from Google yet.

    AdWordsAdvisor, the guy from Google posted over at Webmasterworld that the policy hasn't been implemented yet and he'll post when it does. When it does, i don't know if it'll be instant, might take a few weeks to roll all the way out, don't know.

    Perhaps it's just my imagination, but it seems like searches are coming back with just one ad showing...maybe I'm looking for things that aren't popular, though, and no one wants to bid on them!

    I checked for "ebay" earlier on Google.co.uk and just got one result, which was an affiliate link.
    Innovative advertising with Slimeware Corporation and Telephore. Mail-order fuel with Petrol Direct.

    It is supposed to be posted here once it is implemented:
    https://adwords.google.com/select/news/index.html
    So guess we'll just have to keep an eye on that page.
