Nowadays it is very difficult to get Google Adsense account, but you know even more difficult comes when AdSense 403 Forbidden Error arrives. Solving this problem is a major headache.
In this post, I will tell you the steps to solve this problem.
When does AdSense 403 Forbidden Error Arrive?
403 Forbidden error is mostly for new AdSense users. Users who have previously rejected the AdSense application and then later approve the application of their account get this error. You will get Adsense approval message in the email which will say “Your account has been approved and ads will go live within few hours”.
But even after 48 hours, they do not see the ads. A blank ad appears there. If you check on your website by right-clicking -> Inspect -> Console then you can notice 403 Forbidden error.
Why does AdSense 403 Forbidden Error come?
This is a technical error of an Adsense server. Actually, when your application was rejected earlier, the Adsense crawlers were instructed not to show ads on the website. But you applied again and this time your account has been approved, but maybe by now, AdSense crawlers are allowed to show ads. Has not been instructed for.
How to fix AdSense 403 Forbidden Error?
1) Check the Adsense code:
First of all, you should check that the AdSense code is exactly the same that was created when creating the Adsense account. You will get AdSense code by right-clicking -> view page source (Ctrl + U). An HTML page will open. Now use the find option and check whether the AdSense code is the same.
2) Add your website in Adsense account:
Go to your Adsense account and click on Gear icon -> Settings -> My sites -> Manage sites and add your website. Click on the three dots icon and select authorization and check that “Only Authorize my verified sites to use my ad code” is off.
3) Check your hosting service:
Many hosting services such as Namecheap apply a mod rule of theirs, if you tell them about this issue then they will whitelist your domain.
4) Switch off Cloudflare Rocketscript:
If your website uses Cloudflare, then switch off Rocketscript because Rocketscript does not allow AdSense code to be displayed.
Go to the Cloudflare account, then go to the Speed tab and check if Rocket Loader is off. If it is on then turn it off.
5) Report Adsense forum
You can also report in the Google Adsense Forum. There you start a new thread for this issue. So that the experts could check that there are no other problems in your site.
Visit Adsense Troubleshooter and fill up the questions asked. So that you can file a ticket. The AdSense Officer will directly contact you via email. Now they will check your issue and approve your account manually. You will see ads appearing on your site within 24 hours of being approved.

The first 5 steps are common steps which AdSense experts follow to resolve any issue.
If you directly file the ticket and the Adsense officer explain the entire issue, then he will ask you to do the same 5 steps one by one. All of these will take several hours.
