Ads troubleshooting

Can't see my AdSense for content ads


Why aren't ads showing up on the page?

  If ads are not showing on your site after you've added the AdSense code, make sure that the ad code is correctly implemented in your site. You can do this by viewing the source of your site from a browser and double-checking that the ad code looks exactly like the code we provide you in your account, and includes every line of the ad code.

The most common reason ads don't show

  Your account was previously disapproved

If your AdSense application was originally disapproved, our servers were instructed not to serve Google ads and AdSense for search functionality to any site associated with your account. While we update our servers about the change to your account status, you can expect a delay of up to 48 hours for Google ads to appear, and up to 1 week for AdSense for search to function on your site(s). We appreciate your patience.
Browser and ad blocking issues

We recommend that you clear your browser cache and delete your cookies before trying to access your site again.
Your AdSense code has not been properly implemented.

To verify that your AdSense code has been properly implemented, first, open your site in a browser and view the source code (select 'View' then 'Source' or 'Page Source'). Next, compare the AdSense code in your page source with the code from your AdSense account. Your ads may not appear if you see any of these issues:

  • The AdSense code does not appear in its entirety
  • The code displays all on one line
  • The code has extra HTML tags within it

Because every web editor is different, we're unable to provide you with specific instructions for resolving these issues. However, you might find it helpful to visit our Code implementation guide, which guides you step-by-step through the process of adding the AdSense ad code to the HTML source of your web pages.

You signed up through an AdSense host partner and implemented the ad code on your own domain
If you signed up through an AdSense host partner (like Blogger or YouTube) and would like to also show AdSense ads on your own domain, you'll need to submit a one-time approval request from within your AdSense account.
You have not entered your PIN

If you do not enter your PIN in time, your ads may disappear. To enable targeted ads, you'll need to enter your PIN. If you have trouble receiving PIN, please visit the 'Address and phone verification' tab.
Are the ads inside nested frames?

While you can choose where to position your ads on your pages, be sure to avoid embedding the ad code in excessive div tags or nested frames. Depending on your browser settings, implementing your ad code in this way might prevent ads from appearing correctly.
Is JavaScript enabled in your browser?

Ensure that you have JavaScript enabled in your browser, as this is necessary to view ads! If you're having trouble seeing the ads, please also check for any conflicting JavaScript on your site that might prevent ads from showing.
