    Adsense Publishers... anybody getting lots of 404 errors?


    I am suddenly getting lots of 404 errors on pages where I display adsense ads.

    I don't believe that my content is responsible for these errors.

    Does anyone know if bad images or media in adsense errors can produce 404 errors in my analytics?

    I don't know if this is connected, but I have been getting loads of 404 errors lately with '/undefined' - the pages all have Adsense on them.

    I'm new to Adsense and haven't looked into the '/undefined' issue at all - a quick Google search might sort it out for me. There doesn't seem to be anything else wrong.

    Thanks Belfast,

    Did your 404's start to increase during the last week of October?

    Mine started then and hit incredible levels yesterday - and continuing today.




    Anybody know what could cause a page with ads to generate 404s?

    EGOL... I have not experienced any inordinate number of 404's on my Adsense pages. Things appear normal to me.

    The only place I see the 404's is via a WP plugin - no data on Analytics.

    They are very up and down, with a general increase - especially today.

    The site has only been running for a few weeks so there isn't really anything to compare it to.

    I have another site - effectively the same theme, plugins and Adsense with absolutely no sign of any errors and similar traffic.

    Just odd.

    Newbie to AdSense as well, already faced that issue. Need to add that today everything works proper.
