Fix Google Adsense Not Showing Up

Hello. Just so you know, this article is recovered from previous version of octalforty and will not be maintained.

So your Google Adsense decided not to show itself up on your blog? I’ve had similar problems for the past few months. At first I thought it would take a few weeks for the Adsense to show up just to get the appropriate ad that matches my content. So I waited… and waited… until I gave up.

But today, it works flawlessly! With the help of some of the few Google Adsense Support Team of course. I’m surprised how I didn’t managed to come across this “fix” all these months of “google”ing countless websites on how to solve this.

So let’s see how you can make you Google Adsense start showing up too!

First of all, refer to the Google Adsense Support page. You’d be amazed at how much information you can find there that will help you. Here’s a few basic things you should know though, just for your easy reference, taken from the Google Adsense Support page :

When will Google recrawl my site?

At this time, we’re unable to control how often our crawlers index the content on your site. Crawling is done automatically by our bots. If you make changes to a page, it may take up to 1 or 2 weeks before the changes are reflected in our index.

Why are ads not appearing on my site?

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.

So, you’ve referred the support page, enable JavaScript, disable all your adblocking software and firewall, and 100% sure that you have not been disapproved on your AdSense application within the past 48 hours.

So what could you do? Below I listed two extra solution that might help you in solving your problem, as it did with mine.

  • Check HOSTS file
  • Go to %WINDOWSINSTALLPATH%\system32\drivers\etc\, open and edit the HOSTS file with WordPad.

    Look out for these lines below, and delete them :

    FYI: I deleted all URL I could find related to Google Adsense in the end, just to be on the “safe” side 🙂

  • Re-register JavaScript
  • Go to Start > Run. Key in (without quotes) “regsvr32 jscript.dll” in the field and press Enter.

There you have it. My Google Adsense showed up after I did those above steps. Hope this helps!
