Google AdSense Ads Not Displaying - Widespread Complaints

I am seeing widespread complaints over the past 24 hours or so from the Google AdSense community that their ads are not appearing on publisher web sites.

There are many threads in the Google AdSense Help forums with this issue but one big one that sums it all up. Meanwhile the folks at WebmasterWorld are complaining that their metrics are all off for the past day or so.

There are literally hundreds of complaints about this but with it being a long Memorial Day weekend, no one from Google has really responded to the issue. The Google Ads team on Twitter is active but the AdSense team is off for the weekend. Google Ads is doing their best to help but it isn't really working.

Here are some of the complaints from the Google AdSense Help forums:

There have been multiple reports by publishers about ads ceasing to appear on their sites without any notification. It certainly seems as if a large number of publishers are affected, however the cause remains unclear.

It would be helpful if you could post here so that the scale and nature of the issue can be discussed. Please share information such as your site's address and any observations you may have.

Same for me. No ads for 3 days.

Google Ads also suddenly stopped appearing on my blog website ( two days ago. I tried following Google Adsense's troubleshooting procedure but still not fixed. What only appears in the ad placement is a blank rectangular blocks.

Just to test if other ad networks will show up, I pasted (Yahoo ad network) ad code and it worked. I believe the problem is only Google Ads.

Hope you can assist me in fixing this.

Adsense ads stop serving as of Friday, May 24. Adsense shows the true value of Pageviews but almost no impressions (less than 100 for a day while page views are above 3K) Obviously no clicks, 0.00 CPC, 0.00% Page CTR.

Here are some of the complaints at WebmasterWorld:

Starting ~14 hours ago the ads on my site are no longer loading. Also, in Adsense dashboard the page views counter increases but the ad impressions counter has no activity. Anyone else having this problem?

Oh, what a joy May turns up to be.

Thanks to the issue with the ads not being displayed at all, as well as the May 2 decline change people described above, May is a disaster for me.

Anyone having the issue causing Adsense not updating the impressions/clicks past few days? The Page Views number seems fine but my Clicks decreased by like 80%

So for now, I wouldn't panic, you are not alone - it is just a shame no one at Google can respond about these issues over a holiday weekend.

Did you hear if Google has responded to any publishers? I see no mention yet from a Google AdSense rep on the issue.

Forum discussion at Google AdSense Help and WebmasterWorld.
