Ad blocker detected, you need to disable it in order to setup AdSense

If you receive this message but you do not believe that you are using an ad blocker in your browser, it’s likely that one or more of the plugins installed on your site is blocking ads. Follow the Using Troubleshooting Mode guide to identify the issue.

Ads not displaying

Check source code

If you are not seeing ads on your site, first check your source code to ensure that the AdSense snippet has been successfully added by Site Kit:

<script>
(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({
google_ad_client: "ca-pub-3467161889682403",
enable_page_level_ads: true,
tag_partner: "site_kit"
});
</script>

If you do not see the snippet on the site: 

  • Disconnect AdSense by going to Settings > Connected Services > AdSense > Edit > Disconnect AdSense from Site Kit
  • Reconnect by going to Settings > Add More Services > AdSense

Confirm your AdSense account is approved

To check your AdSense account status:

  • Go to Settings > Connected Services > AdSense and click the Check your site status link. This will take you to AdSense.
  • In the Sites table, find the site that you have connected to AdSense via Site Kit
  • If it says “Ready,” the account has been approved and should be displaying ads
  • If it says “Getting ready…,” your account is still under review and your site will not display ads until it has been approved

Contact AdSense support

If the AdSense snippet is successfully embedded on your site and your account has been approved but your site is still not showing ads, contact the AdSense Help Center for assistance.

AdSense approvals and timeline

If you are new to AdSense and you connect it for the first time via Site Kit, your new AdSense account will need to be manually reviewed and approved by the AdSense team. Check out this guide for more information about the approval process and timeline.

If you have questions about your site’s approval status, please contact the AdSense Help Center.

Not enough ads

When connected via Site Kit, we strongly suggest using auto ads, which scans your site and automatically places ads for you. While you can’t customize auto ads placement positions from within Site Kit, there are configuration options for auto ads in AdSense including the option to increase or decrease the ad load, and you can also use AdSense to exclude specific pages on your site from showing auto ads. If you want more control over how and where your ads display, you can choose not to use auto ads.

If you have more specific questions about how and where your ads are displaying, please contact the AdSense Help Center.

Your Google account does not have sufficient permissions to access AdSense data

Insufficient permissions in AdSense

This error, which appears within the AdSense widget on the Site Kit Dashboard, occurs when the Google account that you used to set up Site Kit does not have access to the AdSense account that another administrator used to connect the AdSense module in Site Kit. 

To resolve this, you must request access to the connected AdSense account from the administrator who previously connected the AdSense module. Once access has been granted to the connected AdSense account, you will be able to view AdSense data within the Site Kit Dashboard.
