    I have a website with adsense on it it works fine on mobiles and computer but when i access my link through instagram my ads arent showing? The space is still there like it knows a ad is there but nothing shows?

    This only happens when i click on my website via my instagram profile?

    I didn't hear of adsense banning for instagram very interesting. Although I haven't tried this, was it working well? before the ban guys?

    This explains a lot.just lost my 3 year old adsense account. Didn't understand why but majority of traffic was social. Still sucks but now at least I have an idea why its banned now.

    Sorry, nothing to do with Instagram or Adsense, but your site configuration, or your Ads configuration. I have mobile sites set up all displaying Adsense ads, and getting clicks via Instagram Traffic as we speak.... look elsewhere for why they are not showing up.

    I do have a mobile ad by chikita on my site though which comes up do you think that could cause it? because i dont think i have to do anything to adsense code as if you read there instructions on it, they say there codes are good for the web and mobile

    I've been running them for months. Bans come from ridiculous CTR not from the fact that the traffic is Instagram. Chitcka and Adsense can live side by side as long as they are not too similar in appearance as per their TOS. I really think you should experiment with the size and type of adsense ad you are running. As I stated, mine show fine on mobile and web devices via Instagram.

    is your page running a mobile theme?
    because mine is a normal theme and it also doesnt work. Instagram changed from opening safari if you click the link to opening the page inside of instagram

    Ahh, those fuckers. That might be the issue. My instagram app was never updated, so still opens in safari. There is a chance that all devices running the new app will now not display Adsense ?! Google and Facebook don't exactly see eye to eye to begin with, and considering the ammount of SPAM on IG, they might as well be "Ghosting Adsense" now also. Strange, I did get several clicks yesterday and today. Might be unupdated apps though. Will need to look into this some more.

    Yes, my adsense income dropped from 30 dollar to 5 dollar per day. Bitches.
    I hope its just a bug which they are going to fix...
