My Adsense Not Showing Ads in a few pages ?
One of the major queries we face are related to Adsense Ads are only showing up partially. That means, A part of the website or A Page or A particular Post alone not receiving or displaying the Google Ads. In the same time, the rest of their Website contents showed Ads without any issues.
For instance, I myself have faced this issue in the beginning of my career and You know – The Issue is almost resolved now with little or more deterministic effort from user’s end.
Why Google Adsense Ads are not showing up in a few pages / Posts ?
As you know, One of the main objective of Google’s Adsense program is quite evidently, to protect the Advertiser’s brand, reputation and Trust. This is one of the main reason Adsense is the most preferred Ad Network among the Advertisers. So how Google protects the Advertiser’s brand name and Trust?
Consider a case :
Publisher A is owning an excellent website where he shows Adsense Advertisements. The website is all about Children and Young Parents. So by filtering the keywords, Web crawlers understand what the website is all about and start to show Ads of a infamous Infant nourishment product for sales. Mr. A happens to write an article about young parents who are living separately. In that post, Knowingly or Unknowingly he mentions a few facts, incidents and Opinions which are no way socially acceptable or not advisable to discuss in public.
Now think if the same Reputed Brand’s Ad is shown in this post as done in the rest of the website, What would happen when a reader goes through this content? It would negatively impact the brand as people are tend to relate the Advertiser as an sponsor of that page and the improper content in has. Isn’t it?
So, what is the better way to handle this situation?
The Web crawlers decode those contents in advance when they get a Ad request and Flag the Page RED. Hence, no ads are pushed by Adsense to display on that page. That is, Ad request from that particular page is denied. Resulting in an issue “Google AdSense not showing ads on few pages of my site”.
The moral of the story :
If Ads are not showing up in a particular post or page, that means, Web Crawlers have flagged that Page RED for improper content.
Adsense / SEO Stop Words :
We saw earlier that the Web crawlers decode the contents and Flag RED if there is anything unacceptable. How an automated program or a Robot can do this? What could be the Source for them to interpret if the content is Abusive or Offensive? How it does all these flagging stuffs ?
Well, The answer is simple : Keywords.
They have classified that certain keywords are potentially unsafe and rude to be used in a content. But the question is How one can completely avoid those words if one such word is an essential element of an excellent Social write up ?
So the answer is : Keywords are added with certain weight-age based on their severity.
How the Adsense Stop Words logic might work ?
Crawlers read the Keywords and fixes them in context as best as they can. In case of any content violation, they pick that particular keyword up and assumes its weight-age. Also It starts to sum up such problematic keywords in that page along with the weight-age of them. When the cumulative weight-age of those keywords exceed a certain threshold – then the Page is Flagged RED.
How to get the Ads showing up in the Adsense Stopped Pages or Posts?
There is only one way to go :
- Remove those offensive contents without disturbing the post’s bottom line.
- Hence the cumulative stop score reduces and falls below the threshold with repeated such corrective attempts.
Its not always guaranteed that the Ads will resume by itself once you removed such content. Because, at times, that particular URL can be flagged permanently based on the severity of content violation before. So once clearing the contents for safety, one might need to rename the URL in order to get evaluated by the crawler once again and further to get the Ads back.
