Awesome Ads has earned me a bundle (I think--I've got finalized earnings in line with my experience thus far, though I haven't gotten a payment yet). The problem: after eight days, my AdSense ad units go "Idle." The only way that I can keep my account active and continue to get credit and money for clicks is to make sure to create another ad unit every week. Such a unit will appear as "New" and then will go "Idle," and I'll get no credit for a click or an impression.
I notice that all I have to do, or even can do, is put in a pub ID. I cannot specify an Ad Unit ID.
For that matter, ads do not appear on my Home Page. (All of my posts have More tags so that more posts and excerpts will appear in the main column.) Ads do appear in posts--every post, and in proper context. (And I know that people are clicking them.)
Why does AdSense take down an ad unit as "Idle"? Why do I get "no data" in an Ad Unit performance report? (However, my Ad Type performance report has plenty of data, in line with the overview.) Why do I have to make sure to create another ad unit every week to make sure that I will always have a "New" ad unit on-line, in order to get credit and money?
