    I checked about a dozen of my Hub posts from recent to older to active and the no-index posts too. None of them are running ads - other than the Amazon and eBay which I added myself. There are no ads placed by HubPages. I thought it was just the no-index posts but it seems to be that way on all of them.

    Is there a problem on the site with Adsense?  Or is this just something I'm missing?

      You might email Simone at HubPages. She is always on her game.

        I'm miserable with a cold right now. I think this is one thing I will check again on the weekend. If it's just a glitch it may go away by the time I feel better.

      It looks like you may have an ad blocker, as Paul Maplesden mentioned.
      Please disable any ad-blocking software on your computer.
      Sometimes the software is part of a browser plugin, toolbar, etc.

    Is it possible you have an ad-blocker installed? I know that's caught me out a few times!

      Yeah That Grrl- that's my best guess too. I'm definitely seeing ads on your Hubs!

      I block Flash but not ads. Will have to dig a bit deeper. Thanks for the help everyone.

        Blocking Flash will block many ads as they use Flash.

          I know! I really hate and loathe video ads which open automatically. All those bloated ads push up the cost for my ISP. I'm on the border of  having to pay for the next level of bandwidth so I began blocking anything Flash and as much video as I can too.

    Yup you have a glitch of all glitches. I have all my amazon and ebay ads and accompanied by adsense. Nothing is missing. Hope you get to the bottom of it.
