I'm wondering if I've missed a notice about a change in AdSense for Search. This past June, my statistics for search started showing - No data available - for search. I hadn't changed anything, and don't get that many clicks, so I made a note to check later to see what was going on. I've had no impressions and no clicks ever since.
I'm finally getting around to it, and when you do a search on my site, you are redirected to the correct page on my site where the results and ads should display, but nothing appears. No search results, no ads, nothing.
I'm using the custom search box with the transparent "Google Custom Search" text in the box.
I made sure the channel for search was listed in my account, and generated new code and put on my site. Same thing, I get no results. The search channel is showing a status of "New" in the channel listings.
I've noticed the code generated now isn't the same as the code that's on my site, but it doesn't matter as the new code isn't doing anything either. I did notice the new code has XHTML closing brackets " / >" instead of just ">". The pages I have search on are HTML pages, not XHTML and I'm wondering if that's the problem.
Did I miss a notice that AdSense for Search was changing? If not, any ideas how to fix since Google doesn't have any support for things like this?
Thanks in advance.
