Ads troubleshooting

Enable JavaScript in your browser to see ads on your site

To view Google ads on a website, you need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Enable JavaScript in Google Chrome

  1. Open a window in Google Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More More and then Settings.
  3. At the bottom, click Show advanced settings.
  4. In the "Privacy" section, click Content settings.
  5. Select Allow all sites to run JavaScript (recommended) in the "JavaScript" section.
  6. Click Done.

Enable JavaScript in Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari

Review and follow the instructions provided by your browser:

Please keep in mind that upgrading your browser or installing new security software or security patches may affect your JavaScript settings. It is a good idea to double-check that JavaScript is still enabled if you notice problems displaying Google ads. Additionally, if your JavaScript setting is set to 'Prompt', you may encounter a warning about downloading potentially dangerous scripts from a website that displays Google ads.

If you are still experiencing problems viewing the ads after ensuring that JavaScript is enabled in your browser, please check our list of the most common reason ads don't show.
