Site management

Your site is inactive

If your site hasn't shown any ads for at least four months, then it's considered inactive. When this happens, you'll see an alert in your account, and you'll have one month to start showing ads again. If your site remains inactive for over five months, then it will need to be reviewed again. You can see your inactive site listed on your Sites page.

Note: Before you request a review, make sure that you’ve placed the AdSense code on your site and that it complies with the AdSense Programme policies.

If you're using other AdSense products

Inactive site alerts only apply to AdSense for content. If you're using a different AdSense product (e.g. AdSense for search, AdSense for games, AdSense for video, etc.) then your ads aren't affected and you don't need to take any action. If you decide to show AdSense for content ads in the future, then your site will need to be reviewed again.

How to request a review for an inactive site

  1. Sign in to your AdSense account.
  2. Click Sites.
  3. Click Down arrow next to your inactive site.
  4. Click Show details.
  5. Confirm that you've placed the AdSense code on your site. Learn more about pasting ad code in our code implementation guide.
  6. Click Request review.

    We'll check that your site is ready to show ads.

Tip: Make sure that you place the code on every page that you want to show ads. After our checks are complete, your site will be ready to show ads again. Learn how to set up ads on your site.
