[How To] Fix Google Adsense Rejected Ad Requests Error!
For most webmasters and bloggers, Google Adsense is one of their most basic source of income. It’s easy to setup and requires just some basic cut & paste skill and where to put the code into your blog.
Most of the time, part of the income is used to pay the yearly domain name fees, monthly hosting costs and the leftover will be used for whatever reasons that please the webmasters and bloggers.
Another thing is that most webmasters or bloggers have few or basic knowledge about coding and programming since Blogger & WordPress have done such a good job in making blogging or creating websites much much easier with the WYSIWYG format which literally means What You See Is What You Get.
So, when you get this error, most of the webmasters or bloggers will go WTH?
Rejected Ad Requests? For most people, ad requests are good except for XXX stuffs right? 😛
So, how do you really fix this? After I received this alert from Google Adsense, immediately I freaked out. Being a person not coming from a programming or IT background, these things sometimes are really confusing for me. I quickly click on the ‘Learn more’ button and the link brings me to Google’s webmaster’s forum. Click here for the link to Google’s fix for the Rejected Ad Requests.
Frankly speaking, I don’t even understand what Google is trying to tell me on how to fix the Ad Requests Error. And this sentence freaks me out even more: ‘You have rejected ad requests, which will result in lost revenue.’ The red words make me feel even more worried.
After googling around, finally I found a good solution for this problem. The solution is actually doing nothing. ‘Doing nothing? Are you serious?’, you might say but I found out that this a bug from Google Adsense. Click here for more information about the Google Adsense bug. Google has said that they hope to fix this bug within the next few days.
We recently changed the way our system surfaces alerts related to rejected ad requests. This has resulted in some publishers seeing an alert in their AdSense accounts about needing to fix rejected ad requests, though no action is required on their part.
We’re quickly working to fix this so that only publishers who need to take action will see the alert. We hope to have this resolved in the next couple of days, and we’ll update the known issues page when the update is live. If you are concerned about this alert, please check your account after that, and if you still see the notice, follow the instructions in the Help Center to resolve the issue. Note that the vast majority (over 90%) of publishers now seeing this notification will not see it after the fix. If the instructions in the Help Center don’t seem to apply to you, you are probably one of the publishers who should not be seeing this alert notification.
Mine is fixed today, one day after I got this ‘Rejected Ad Requests’ bug. There is no more alert from Google Adsense. Now, my blood pressure is back to normal already. So, just wait for your fix if you don’t change anything to your Google Adsense codes.
Any of our Malaysian webmasters, bloggers or publishers having this issues also? Please do leave a comment. 🙂
What’s your say?
