View Full Version : Adsense and URL problem

05-23-2008, 02:37 PM

Im having a problem in one page of the site on my sig (http://www.famousdeaddb.com/list/)...the ads are not appearing. They don't appear at all or show PSA. They sometimes appears every once in a while.

The thing is that if i access the real page with the .php extension (instead of using the mod_rewrite version) the ads appear every single time.

This is the only page on the site with this problem. I noticed it a few days ago.
No changes to the mod_rewrite rules or anything. I did change the design/layout, but this problem was happening with the old design as well.

I assume there is some kind of problem with that URL ( http://www.famousdeaddb.com/list/ ) but i have no idea what or how to fix it.

I would really appreciate any info or ideas on how to fix this! Im preparing the site for selling it and this problem is causing me some headaches.


BTW: that page has a 301 redirect that i did 1 year ago: http://www.websitepublisher.net/forums/showthread.php?t=7767
I can't imagine why that would be a problem now, but just wanted to mentioned it.

The only time I've experienced orphan pages like that that do not show adsense it has been because a stray naughty word (or something similar) was somewhere on the page.

But with your URL testing that wouldn't seem to be the case unless it is something in the URL itself.

Yeah, i tried changing all the words, titles, content, etc, but nothing worked.
I actually copied the entire content (and meta tags, etc) from the Popular page (/list/popular/) since that one works well, but nothing happened.

I don't want to list the real file (without mod_rewrite) here, but like i said, every time i access it through that URL it works perfectly.

Could it be some sort of problem with a redirection (301) or something like that? or maybe duplicate files?

I also changed the redirection from /list/ to /list2/ and then it worked! So, it's obviously something with that name (list/).

It's driven me crazy. I hope it's just a simple thing that im overlooking.
