Adsense will not Work on my blog! (7 posts)

    Hello. I converted from Blogger to WordPress recently. First, I started with wordpress.com and realized I needed to do self hosting with wordpress.org. I purchased hosting with bluehost and sent my wordpress blog there. Now, I have tried since Wednesday morning to get my google adsense to work and it will not. It displays a blank box where an ad should be as you can see here:
    Please note, the blog isn't finished it is in starting stages and on hold until I fix this adsense issue.

    I have contacted BlueHost and Google and they have told me nothing on their end should be preventing my ads from showing up. I have tried plugins and they don't work either. These ads are from html codes in for my ads in widgets. I have also tried regenerating new codes. Nothing works! Empty boxes nonstop. I don't want to close my bluehost account and wordpress and go all the way back to blogger because my blog refuses to show my ads. It's very frustrating and I have spent so much time the past 3 days researching and troubleshooting this problem and trying so many things. Any ideas? I was wondering if maybe it is because I still have a wordpress.com blog running...when I go to wordpress.com, for some reason my bluehost wordpress blog shows up as my blogs on the .com site?

    Confused, anything at all much appreciated.

    the adsense code is showing in three locations in your site; i.e. there is nothing wrong with the coding on the WordPress part.

    do you have adsense code working anywhere else in any other sites?

    have you checked your adsense account, if you fullfil all their criteria?

    possibly check with adsense directly if you are breaking any terms & conditions, or have enough content, or ...

    @TheAldiMom - as alchymyth pointed out, the code IS loading if you view the source code, and also not outputting any errors. I can almost guarantee that Google is not loading any ads because you're viewing it from an IP domain instead of an actual domain. Once your site goes live on an actual domain, more than likely ads will start displaying within a couple hours once Google refreshes its system and/or crawls your new site. Additionally, are the ads new specifically created for your new site? New ads can sometimes take a bit to start showing actual ads until Google can crawl the site properly if it hasn't before.

    Thanks guys! I'm trying to understand, if I forward the IP domain to my actual AldiMom.com address, do you think the ads will start working? As far as content goes, I have more just waiting to try and get kinks worked out before finishing up the site.

    And yes, it is still showing the ads on my old blogger site. I transferred my domain AldiMom.com from Go Daddy to BlueHost and it has been accepted and everything, so I'm surprised at how the old blogger site is still the domain.

    And no, the ads on the new wordpress are newly generated, not the same as the old site. :)

    I am trying to figure out how to get my IP address to be a normal address. I purchased several domain names, do I just redirect the IP website address to the domain name address? Sorry, not a super experienced webmaster here! Appreciate the help.

    1) I won't guarantee the ads will show up, just "almost guarantee" hehe.

    2) when you transfer a domain, the nameserver settings transfer with it. So if your nameservers are still pointing to the godaddy hosting account, it'll continue to point the that host until you update the name servers.

    3) You have to point the domain to the server by updating the domain to the nameservers of your host. On your host, the domain has to exist as well otherwise the server doesn't know where to point the domain to.

    For example... you create a hosting account at BlueHost for the domain AldiMom.com. You point the domain name servers of AldiMom.com to the nameservers that BlueHost provides. Within 72 hours your domain should point to your new host.

    You also have AldiMomRocks.com, and you add the new server's nameservers in the registrar settings of the domain to point to your new server. No matter how long you wait, (unless you use a forwarder instead) AldiMomRocks.com will not serve up at your new host unless you add AldiMomRocks.com as an alias/parked domain of AldiMom.com.
