Rules for how many Google AdSense ads will appear
1. You need to be showing 6 topic sections for all three ads to appear on the front page. For further information please take a look here.
2. In addition, AdSense will only allow three ads to show in total for a paper. They consider a topic section page in the same count as the front page, and only will allow a total of three ads per "page". So if you have three ads showing on your front page, your fourth (topic section) ad will not appear unless you refresh when you are on that page.
