Broken Ads? Is Adsense running ok on your end?

Something is not right...

Hi there, I'm seeing (1) US$0.10 - US$0.20 earnings daily for the last 3 days. This is not common on my side, that's way too low. I already checked my sites, server, etc and everything is working fine.

Except Adsense? Apart of the (2) terrible recent ads some pages (3) took too long to show ads, (4) some didn't get to show any. I've been trying to check the (5) Ad Review Center only to see blank spaces, urls but no ads, tried several times on diff internet connection and no luck so far. My internet is working fine, I can access everything, it's the Ad Review Center that is failing to show ads, some take a lot of time to lad only to show text (and broken images).

So, 1+2+3+4+5 doesn't sound good. I'm also clicking on the ad (on the Ad Review Center) only to see blank spaces, no nothing, just empty.

All look normal for me, or I should say look "as usual". Because, yes, I do see "myself" (doesn't mean others do) empty ads, where my backup ads are not even called. This is not normal, but it's like that since some years. (there is no reason the backup ads page is not called).

Now, about the Ad Review Center, it's "frequent" that I see empty ads. But, I noticed that this is for advertisers which are restricting their creatives to a given country. Like for example, if I click on the URL, i'll get a page with message saying the offer/service/product is not available in your country. So I assume that, the Ad review center is applying the geo restriction rules, and therefor not showing creatives in that case. (which is not right, since it's to review the ads!). Also, it happened that "empty" ads showing is because the advertisers was banned between.

Something you can check, is to use the "console" of your web browser (under Development tools), and check the error messages. From time to time, I see big error messages related to the ads (not my own pages). This can be Javascript error message, missing files, infinite loop, wrong MIME type, etc etc...). I miss the time where an ad was one image, one text, one URL.

The backup ads have never been consistent for me either. My backups ads will "hide" the unit. I really wanted to try adding 2 or 3 MORE adsense units and switching the ad blade down to 60% or so. I think this would have amazing effects!

Thank you @justpassing + @Steven29, it's now working, really slow but working. Low earnings remain.
