AdSense java applet not being displayed?

It's just whitespace in its place!

When I first placed the AdSense code onto my site, it all worked fine for the first few minutes. Since then, however, there's just been whitespace instead of any ads at all. Not even public service announcements! Nothing... just whitespace :(

I emailed google about this earlier today and haven't heard back yet. It's been almost 12 hours.

Any ideas?

That is very wierd, can't see why it shouldn't be working.

Maybe the MediaPartners Googlebot is unable to index your pages, so can't tell what they are about, that would explain them working for a few minutes then stopping. Are you able to check your logfiles to see if it had any problems? Having taken a look the site appears perfectly fetchable.

I think it's not something to do with Mediapartners bot. If it were to do with the bot, you would have seen PSA's, but since you don't see any banner, I presume that it may be due to some problem on your end. Are you using a firewall software on your computer like Zonealarm pro or something else. When that software is active, I don't see most of the banners on any sites.

Try adding that banner on any file locally after shutting down all unimportant programs from the task manager. You could also check online as well.

Do let me know what happens.

Yeah, those are the kind of thoughts I had. But the ads didn't show for me when I went to look at the site, the code worked fine locally so it isn't to do with the individual account.

I've got a weird non display problem as well. I have put the banner ad one one of my sites. If I view it using Opera I can see the ads no problem. Using IE6 from the same computer, just a white space. If I change the format to a skyscraper I can see it in both IE and Opera.

I'm very confused.

You know what is funny. I use php includes to load my navigation bars, and when I tried to load just the code by itself using a php include, it would only work on Opera 7.11 not IExplorer 6.0 2800

However, if I add the code {still using includes} along with the rest of the navigation bar {category descriptions and internal links} it loads fine in both.

I also noticed today when I got to work, that no ads where displaying. However, it was the IT department changing the security parameters on all of the browsers to {high javascript security and no accessing data from other domains} You might want to change those in your IExplorer.

Even with all security settings on low, the horizantal (banner) version will not display in IE6 yet the skyscraper will if I put that code on the page. The only reason I haven't changed it to the skyscraper is that it will not fit in with the rest of the page layout (and I'm to lazy to change it). ;)
