Troubleshooting Google AdSense on WordPress

You can find it in the URL when you are logged into your AdSense account. It contains the prefix pub- followed by a lot of numbers. You can also find your Publisher ID under Settings > Account > Account Information in your AdSense account.

This section is relevant if you cannot connect to your AdSense account under Advanced Ads > Settings > AdSense or if the connection is lost.

  • Try to disconnect and re-connect your account again
  • The connection might not work when your account has more than 1,500 ads. This is not a hard limit, but something we saw occasionally.
  • Make sure that your AdSense account is fully verified.
  • Check if you connected with the right Google account.

Here you find the most common reasons for ads not showing up. Our aim is that all items can also be checked by less technical users. The most common reasons for AdSense ads not showing up are…

  • The AdSense account or the website is new: Wait 48 hours, but keep in mind that it might take weeks for everything to work correctly.
  • Your website was not added: Go to Account > Sites in your AdSense account and add it.
  • The ad is new: Simply wait 30 minutes and refresh the page.
  • Your site does not comply with the AdSense policies: Review the policies here.

This page explains the most common AdSense errors and warnings and what you can do about them. We are listing the warnings from your AdSense account or error console and the appropriate warning in your dashboard.

The All Access pass is by far the best deal and includes all available tools and functions, including Click Fraud Protection, Lazy Loading, Tracking, Sticky Ads, and AdSense AMP integration.

In a multisite network, you can install and activate our add-ons on as many component sites as your license has activations left. Learn more about Advanced Ads on multisites.

Yes, you can always upgrade to All Access from any add-on, from a lesser to a larger number of sites, or switch to our long-term deal. You will only pay the difference between what you’ve already paid and the price of the new package. Read more about upgrades.

Advanced Ads can only be installed on WordPress sites where you are able to install plugins freely.

However, you can use the ad server feature or the REST API to deliver ads from a WordPress website to non-WordPress websites.

Google AdSense WordPress FAQ

Log in to your AdSense account and navigate to the Ads section. Create an ad unit and choose the ad type, size, style, and other preferences. After creating the ad unit, copy the ad code provided and embed it on your website by using a plugin like Advanced Ads.

Use the Google AdSense WordPress ad manager plugin Advanced Ads. After installing and activating the plugin on your WordPress website, connect your website to Google AdSense by clicking “Connect to AdSense” in Advanced Ads > Settings > AdSense. Once connected, you only have to decide whether you’d like to allow AdSense to place ads automatically or assign them to dedicated ad spots manually.

In general, ad scripts may impact page load times. To mitigate this issue and maintain a fast-loading WordPress site, install Advanced Ads Pro and activate its Lazy Loading feature. Go to Advanced Ads > Settings > Pro, check the box for the Lazy Load module, and set the distance from ads at which browsers should load the media. Activate the feature on individual ad placements and you’re good to go!
