Now before I get into this slight dilemma I want everyone to know that I am for public service and love non for profit organizations. Recently I built a mini site and noticed that some of the ads which are showing on this site tend to be public service ads. According to Google when a new site is built it could take up to 48 hours for them to crawl your site to display the appropriate advertisements.
Well its been over 48 hours and public service ads are still displaying on my site. I am beginning to think that I might not have enough valuable content for proper advertisements to be displayed. Its no secret that the main reason why I built this site is to inform the customer with valuable information and monetize it while do so.
Now lets talk about one other important fact. I didn’t mention that this site was built on a (.us) based domain name. Could this be one of the problems? I would have a hard time believing if this was the case because I have never seen anything about a domain extension causing problems with adsense. Ideally I ant to believe that Google is perfect, but in this case they are definitely far from this notion.
In the end all I can do is monitor the site on a daily basis and experiment. Maybe adding more content will help, it certainly can’t hurt to try. For those of you wanting to look at the site that I built, you can check it out here:
