    Hi,
    SEMrush
    Is anyone experiencing this? 250x250 boxes appear blank white on my main page.
    Plenty of content on it, has most of the website's traffic. Still, 1 250x250 box is blank, the other ones has ad.

    If I refresh, they might both fill with ads, but quite often one of them is blank.

    Other strange thing is when both show the same ad!

    Anyone experiencing this?

    What solutions are there to treat the problem?

    So far i never experienced such kind of problems. If you show your blog we can check.
    Feel this lot of times. I'm using two 728*90 ad units on my blog and lot of times both ad units shows the same ads.

    I think you there may be few targeted 250 x 250 ads. Try testing 300 x 250 or 728 x 90.

    If there are few, even showing identical or unrelated ads wouldn't be bad. I guess it hasn't crossed Google's mind.

    It can happen if you have a very niche site, with very few advertisers bidding for an ad spot based on your content. If Google cannot find an ad based on your content, then it could remain blank. I have had that problem on one of my sites.

    Another issue could be very less content and a lot of ad units. You can try to diversify the topics you write on, and write longer posts. That could be one way to ensure Google has some ads to show on your blog.

    Test these tactics and report back if they work.
