Is anyone else experiencing this? None of the adsense ads on my sites are showing up, but I can log into my account and view my earnings just fine.

please check the other browser.

there may be ads...some browser will not show google ads due to some html mismatch.

It's the same in IE and Firefox, no ads, but I was able to see them earlier today.

Amanda,
Can you see AdSense ads on other people's web sites?
Does your earnings report show new pageviews, clicks & earnings?
Did you modify your pages recently?
Are you able to see ads using the AdSense preview tool?

I haven't modified any pages within the past week. And I can't see google ads on any other sites. I'm not sure what preview tool you're talking about, where can I find it?

Oh and I do have page impressions and clicks w/earnings today so it must be just me that can't see them.

Amanda...

The URL jatar_k pointed you to is likely your problem. I've seen this happen numerous times, but I can't recall which spyware/malware program created the issue.

Eventually, you'll need to remove those IP/hostname pairs from your hosts file. If you're using Windows XP, the file is likely located here:

c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

You're right, that was the problem, I found something with google in the hosts file and deleted it and saved it and now I can see all the ads just fine. I'm not sure what would have caused that, but my sister was on the computer yesterday, so I don't know if it was just a website or a program that was downloaded, but it's fixed now. Thanks!

I'd scan for spyware if I were you. Your hosts file didn't change itself.

In the future I'd probably also restrict my sister's computer time.
