All Ad Review Center Ads Disappeared

I used to see few placement targeted ads, if I visit Ad Review Center. Now there is nothing, all ads are gone. Is it possible that all targeted ads removed in a single day? Do you see any problem under your account?

TIA

phew.
Just logged into ARC and no adverts. Came here to see if others had the same problem.

Glad I wasn't alone :)

I never had one since the feature appeared on my account last month. Well, not really paying much attention to it.

Same here.
Just click the "Allowed" tab and they will show up.

Same here.

Seeing that we have had people that no longer have them, and those that do, replying as "same here" doesn't mean much as we do not know what comment you are replying to.

Just click the "Allowed" tab and they will show up.

1: Allowed tab is default setting.
2: The people who cannot see the adverts - myself one of them - already know how to see them. THAT isn't the problem. The problem is that we have adverts in there, but for some reason, all have vanished.

Hello! I noticed the same thing. However, when I clicked on the blocked tab and then re-clicked on the allowed tab, all the new ads appeared. Hope that helps.

Found exactly the same thing as Russ - obviously a google glitch

Same here, as to original poster, sorry.

Just click the "Allowed" tab and they will show up.

That's exactly how I said it:
Click AdSense Setup Tab -> Click Ad Review Center submenu -> NO ads show up -> despite Allowed tab is already selected, click it -> ads will show up.

Is this step by step procedure clear enough now?

Of course if you've asked AdSense to disable CPM ads in the past, by emailing them, you won't even have the Ad Review Center option!

Even though your site may be displaying "placement targeted" CPM ads which you might like to see.

Quite an inconsistency.

And even you ask them to enable cpm ads back again, you still won't see any ads in the ad review center. I don't bother with things like this anymore. I don't even see what ads appearing on my site as I blocked all kind of ads from my pc. I concentrate on getting more traffic instead, now it is more than 1m hits/day. So any ads coming to my site is welcome with my current traffic level.

I did the "click on blocked, clicked on allowed" trick and, sure enough, a slew of ads showed up.

All in French. (!)

(My site is in English. It's a global travel site, but only two of our 73 covered destinations are in France.)

I chose the "50 per page" option, then saw the previous, English-language ads that I'd reviewed earlier underneath the new, French ads.

FWIW, my click-through numbers were awful today, so when I saw nothing in the ad review queue, I thought that I'd lost all those campaigns, giving me a lousy ad mix or something like that. Thankfully, WW was here to let me know of this glitch.

Now, I'm still wondering why my ad click-throughs are down today. Hmmm, maybe a bunch of readers are getting ads in French? ;-)

I usually get 10-20 new advertisers for review in the ad review center each day. Since a couple of days ago this is not the case anymore. I have 3 advertisers stuck in the list now, and if I allow them, they are still in the review list. One of the entries in the list is "empty"; I can see the advertiser link, but not the actual ad(s).

I don't worry too much, though. Apparantly I am not alone having problems with the ad review center, so I guess Google will fix it soon.

Hi all,

we understand that some publishers, who have set their placement-targeted ads to be automatically approved, have noticed that these ads are not appearing under the Allowed tab in the Ad Review Center.

This issue has now been resolved, and you should be able to see your ads should appear under the Allowed tab as normal.

If you encounter this issue again, please let me know and I will escalate to our engineers.

Thanks,
ASA

Thanks ASA

How about enabling the Ad Review center in all cases?

Those of us who opted out of CPM ads do not have the Ad Review center, BUT, our sites still do have "placement targeted" CPM ads. It would be nice to review them.

Lol, you didn't *click* on the tab though did you? Just click on it and you will see the ads...

Hi ASA - this bug is still happening for me (I checked again just now). I missed this thread when I looked so went ahead and raised it yesterday in the Adsense Help pages: Discussions > Account Setup & Settings > Bug in Ad Review Center.

Well, smartarse, go to the ARC and click on the Allowed tab.
You will see that is it NOT an active tab.
You have to first click on the Blocked Tab FIRST.
Then click on the Allowed TAB.

THEN you see your adverts.

Best if you try things first before laughing at someone as if they were stupid.

You don't need to click on the 'Blocked' tab first, just click on the Active tab as Lagonda said in the first post. (just because you're mouse pointer doesn't change, does not mean that you can't click on it...)

as Lagonda later said:
despite Allowed tab is already selected, click it

Best if you try things first before laughing at someone as if they were stupid.

I did, but did you?

BTW, I wasn't laughing at you as if you were stupid, I was laughing because you spoke to Lagonda as if he was stupid.

I did, and for me it is not clickable unless I go to the blocked page first.

Anyway, they know it's a problem so no point going on about it.

AdSenseAdvisor:

I also still have problems with the Ad Review Center. Right now I have only one Avertiser for review (usuallt there are many), and this Advertiser is stuck; I cannot accept it, and I cannot deny it.

The advertiser is in this format: www.domain,com where I have substituted the real domain name with "domain" for privacy reasons.

The point of interest here is that the URL contains a "," instead of a "." before com. Also, I cannot see the real ads of this advertiser, only that the Ad Format is "Rich Media".

"Time before auto-allowed" is also stucked, or it is moving in the range 23 hours 45 minutes to 23 hours 55 minutes or something like that all the time.

It seems I don't get additional Advertiser in for review as long as this problem persists.

My previously reported bug seems to be gone, but I think somethig still is going on for sure.

Usually I get 10-20 advertisers (and even more ads) for review per day. During the last week it has been 0-2 per day...
