[resolved] Adsense ad not showing, but getting hits? (30 posts)

    Dear lord I hope someone's active on this forum to assist me.

    I'm using Google Adsense and with the Simple Ads Manager, I've placed my code into the "Paste code" section of "Edit advertisement" page.

    My preview is blank and there's no ads on my site, however, I can still see the hits from this ad. What in the world am I doing wrong?

    without a link to your site, difficult to tell.

    if you look into the html code of your site in the browser ('view' 'source' or similar) do you see the adsense code somewhere?

    does your browser have ad-blocker activated, i.e. can you see adsense in other sites?

    My browser doesn't have any ad blocking activated. Also, I've checked the source awhile back too and the source doesn't even appear to show any of my adsense code. However, this plugin is indicating that there's activity and hits. That's so confusing.

    All I did was add a new ad place, named the ad place, selected the size of it (120x600), and pasted the JS code that Adsense gave me. I created a new zone named Adsense as well, and left everything else as defaults.

    What am I missing?

    Do you select Code Mode or your Ads Place is in Image Mode?

    I selected Code Mode.

    This thing is confusing... On the "Ad places" page there's a "View Ads" under my advertisement, which brings me to ANOTHER page that's not accessible from the menu it appears. There's no ad in the Adsense places ad, however, even when I tried adding it earlier it still didn't show.

    Just completely lost. I selected code mode and placed my adsense code in there. I'm not sure what else is needed at all for this to appear on my page. Really hesitant about going to another plugin.

    Even tried using an image (my own huge fb picture, still not appearing anywhere on my site..

    Is this ad broken with WP 3.2.1 or something???

    That's what I'm looking for myself. The only thing I've done was Add new place, named the ad place, inserted the code.

    ^ was the first thing I did.

    After I did this, I went back to Ad places. Under my Google Adsense ad that I just created in the screenshot, I clicked "View ads". There was nothing in the next page so I hit "Add new ad". This is what I created in that page

    That's all I did. I know I have to be doing something wrong possibly, but I have no idea what it is.

    How you output Ads Place? Widget, code, sortcode?

    I don't know how to use widget or sorcode. All I did was paste my Google Adsense code in the "Code Mode" box and in the "HTML or JavaScript Code" box. Those are the only two things I've done besides naming the ad place and ad.

    Where do you want place Ads Place?

    1. In sidebar: use widget
    2. In post text: use shortcode or Auto Inserting (customize on settings page)
    3. In template: use functions (API)

    Quick question after looking on that site. How do I get it to appear one very page's sidebar and not just the main page's sidebar? Is that possible in WordPress? This might be something beyond the extension.

    Ad Editor (not Ads Place Editor):
    1. select "Show ad only on pages of this type:"
    2. check all checkboxes exclude Home Page (Home or Front Page)

    That's all

    Sorry, I meant I wanted it to appear on every page, but it's only appearing on the home page.

    It's set to show on all pages of the blog, but when I click on the "About" page, it doesn't show on the side like it does on the home page. Lol.

    Are all checkboxes checked and Home Page checkbox unchecked?

    If I do that, then it won't show on the home page correct? I want it to show on every page. And actually when I set it to everything but the homepage, it still showed on the homepage... Very weird issue...

    Default Ad (patch) must be empty. Your default ad contains code, you must empty it.

    So after I've deleted the Patch code, I just have the adsense code placed in the Code Mode under my ad... But it's still not showing up on any other page.

    Just thought I'd tell you thanks while in the middle of helping me man.

    And then on top of this, placing this widget on the side gets rid of the archive links and stuff... >_<

    You know, it's not just your plugin apparently. Ad Injector does the same thing. On the homepage only but not the rest of the pages. Interesting. Thanks for your help man, I'll continue looking.
