I woke up this morning, and my entire website is completely devoid of Google ads (two per page). My ads.txt file is on the server, and no changes have been made. Does anyone have any guesses as to what the problem might be?

What does it say in your AdSense account? Any policy violations? Are there any impressions being reported? What is the coverage that is being reported? Have you tried to contact AdSense Support?

Thanks for the replies. No policy violations at all. I checked all over the console, and then found a place where you can toggle any of your sites on and off. My site was off - set to grayed! I had not touched it. I toggled it back to green, and an hour later the ads began showing.

Azinda, where is this place that you speak of where you can turn on/off adverts?

I think the reference above was for the Allowed Sites list found at SETTINGS >> MY SITES >> OVERVIEW.

Sounds like it was mistakenly grayed out (allowed sites have a green check mark next to them).

Ah, that's the authorized sites part. Thank you. I thought it was a separate thing.

azlinda, I thought you were done with Adsense? Is it performing better for you now?
