[resolved] Adsense Denied (8 posts)

    I attempted to put adsense on a website I just purchased and it didn't work. For some reason it simply wouldn't show though I could see the code in the source. (I have been coding for a few years, it was all set up correct). This bewildered me so I contacted adsense and was informed that they have disabled adsense on worpress.com subdomains and that I need to contact wordpress about this. Well my site is not a wordpress subdomain. I host the site on my server. Have they blocked wordpress websites entirely or is it specific to wordpress.com subdomains? This will certainly make it clear if I can continue using wordpress for my sites.

  2. disabled adsense on worpress.com subdomains

    For WordPress.COM blogs: You're in the wrong support forum, we don't support WordPress.COM here. Try http://en.forums.wordpress.com/ instead.

    For an explantation of the differences please see http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    BTW WordPress.COM does not permit you to run your ads on their blogs. See their support forums for clarification.

    For self-hosted WordPress.ORG installations (which is what we support here) there is no blanket Adsense block. That does not mean your specific site(s) are not prohibited by Google but that's something you will need to speak with Google about.

    I take that to mean a self-hosted .org install.

    Yes, I downloaded wordpress and installed it on my server with all of my other websites. It is not a subdomain of anything. It is a standalone website.

  5. It is a standalone website.

    Cool! Then what I wrote earlier applies.

    For self-hosted WordPress.ORG installations (which is what we support here) there is no blanket Adsense block. That does not mean your specific site(s) are not prohibited by Google but that's something you will need to speak with Google about.

    Your self-hosted site would not be in a sub-domain of WordPress.COM so you have nothing to worry about.

    I already tried adding it and it didn't work. I already emailed adsense and they said this software was blocked and that I need to post here. I am posting here and you are telling me I don't need to worry about it because I am all set which tells me that you are didn't comprehend what I wrote in my first post or you simply didn't bother to read it.

    Google emailed me back and said that my site is blocked because of wordpress and that I need to contact wordpress. tell me how this isn't an issue for me again?

  7. Sorry, but I did read your entire post. My own WordPress blog has Adsense on it as do many other self-hosted WordPress installations on the Internet. If it is not working for you then either you are doing it wrong or it's an Adsense problem.

    If it is an Adsense problem, how exactly do you do you expect a staffed by volunteer support forum to assist you?

    I and the other unpaid volunteers are trying to assist you, could you provide more information other than "it's a WordPress problem". A link often is the first step.

    How are you adding those codes to your site? Are you using a plugin, adding the code via a widget, editing files, or what? Can you provide a link were you have added the Adsense code so that others can see?

    Once you've provided some information then perhaps someone could offer you advice to solve your problem.

  8. To clarify something - AdSense won't let you use 'WordPress' in your ads (i.e. I work for DreamHost and we can't have an ad like 'DreamHost! Where the WordPress Half-Elf Lives!' )

    But Jan's right, you can have Adsense on your site. Any site. If they decide your content is a problem, then the problem is the content, but it's not that you're using WordPress.
