I have created a new website and have set some ads. For some unknown reason, FireBug tells me that I get 403 errors on Google Adsense requests. I have checked my AdSense account and it does not block my new website.

When I open the pages from my PC, the ads are displayed, but I when I try from the website itself, they are not. I can't find much relevant information with Googling.

Does anyone have experience with this? Do you know what is happening? Does it go away by itself? I have also left a question on the Google forum, but did not get an answer yet.

After two days, Google Webmaster start sending messages with more information about the issue. It tried to fetch robots.txt several times, but failed. In the mean time, I logged a ticket to my provider and they finally solved the issue.

Apparently, the 503 was sent to Google Bots only. Were Google bots too aggressive? Was the provider's server too sensitive? I don't know, but the issue is solved.

    Can you tell me if that issue returned and if for different reasons ? I get similar errors for many months already.
