FIXED! Adsense Ads not Showing in Homepage of Blogs or Website

Problem Solved! have you experience your Adsense ads not showing on homepage? Ads are showing on other pages except for homepage, well just this week I had a hard time figuring out why my ads are not showing in homepage.

I have another blog that is using Adsense ads. After a day of fixing almost all my template errors still the Adsense ads are not showing so I tried to search for it on internet.

Some forums will tell you that it is about updating your privacy policy pages, well I did that also but there's no effect.

The solution is very simple just navigate to blogger setting or wordpress seo settings. I'm focusing on blogger since my blog is in blogger platform.




Go to Blogger settings ->> Search Preferences->> Enable search description. Click yes then put your sites description and save. That's it! reload and see the magic :D
