Adsense Referal Ads not being displayed?

Discussion in 'AdSense' started by HotSauce, Jan 9, 2008.

    Is anyone having this problem or is it just me? Today my adsense firefox referrals just disappeared and are no longer being displayed. I am located in the US so I shouldn't be affected by the new "rules" as per the adsense blog:
    http://adsense.blogspot.com/2008/01/upcoming-referrals-changes.html

    I hope I'm not the only one with this problem...

    I hope this is a temporary issue. They said that it would still be available for those in North America, so I wonder why it's still down :(

    Huh. I had a long post I made earlier this morning on this thread, but it seems to have disappeared.

    Text links are still showing, but other referrals are missing. I get a lot of pack and firefox referrals. I noticed issues last night, actually -- ads were still showing, but no credit for conversions.

    Looks like I'm still getting the odd conversion but no $$ credit for them -- likely, the conversions are from people installing Firefox and pack software after downloading it earlier. But I should be getting $$ and I'm not. No ads showing now. I just put a text link up -- I'll report back if I don't get $$ from conversions from it.

    I think Google has issues this morning. Hopefully, it won't take them weeks to fix it this time.

    -- Leva

    yep looks like the text link referrals are working--seems to be just the image referrals that are down.

    For me all button-referrals disappeared - whether for adsense or for firefox. I went ahead and deleted the adsense ones - as I don't live in the USA they are going to be gone anyhow. Great - first they cheat us out of a way of making money - then the buttons stop working altogether.
    I wasn't making that much on adsense-referals anyhow, but it still stinks.

    its kind of annoying. I have whole pages built around firefox plugin, its the main reason I use adsense along with my other methods of income.
