Google Adsense and https site

Recommended Posts

Merchant v2.3.4 BS

It appears that Google Adsense and a https store are not compatible. The ads don't appear. Is there an add-on that solves that problem or some other way to have adsense funtion correctly?

Not true! I have ad-sense ruining fine on a number of sites all https. What you will find is that ad-sense is now prioritizing mobile friendly sites.

I found that after installing new osC I had to make a number of small changes to make google happy with site before it would start showing ads.

Simply use chrome browser dev tool to review your site and remove all issues it finds. You should then find that ads will just start working.

Also check your site on mobile device and see if ad’s are showing. I found they appeared mobile devices first.

If the ads that Google is serving you use http in their addresses, such as for images or Javascript, many browsers will suppress their appearance ("mixed content") due to http (non-SSL) content on an SSL (https) page. You should be able to see this by the icon shown next to your address in the browser address bar. The proper solution is to specify that you want SSL content in your ads, so that everything on the page will be shown by all browsers. I don't use Adsense, so I can't tell you how to do this.


If you are running the "official" osC 2.3.4 or 2.3.4.1 download, your installation is obsolete! Get (stable) Frozenpatches or (unstable) Edge. See also the naming convention and the latest community-supported responsive "Edge" release

If your site is fully ssl compliant then Googe will only serve ssl compliant ads to your site, So mixed content from google ads is not an issue.

Short answer for an established business no! I personally only use it on my hobby sites. On these it works very well.

However in reality it depends on what you are selling and how established your store is. If your selling hobby stuff which is not easy to get or stuff you make your self, then having others that sell similar stuff place ads that may be of interest to your customers can help.

You may find you have competitors that target your site with ads but google allows you to block them. So it's all down to what your selling and how you use it.
