There could be several reasons for this, including the fact that sometimes mistakes happen. We've also seen a number of instances (more than a few) where people received an approval email, and hours or days later received a disapproval. The mistake was the approval email, which is corrected by the disapproval email. This is not a rare occurrence, but it isn't all that common either. It's just that it does happen, so if it happens to you ... find out why your site was disapproved, and make whatever changes are necessary before trying again.
Other reasons for ads not showing include not being fully approved, or being approved with a host account which will only show ads on host URLs, or a host account that will only show ads on host URLs (like YouTube).
Have a look through the following list - these are a few of the reasons your ads might not show up if you were, or think you were approved.
If you don't think any of these are the reasons, go through the troubleshooter (#9 on the list below). If the troubleshooter doesn't turn up any resolutions, and doesn't provide a contact form (in some cases it will, in others it will not) then post a question in the AdSense Help Forum and see if anyone can offer further suggestions.
Keep in mind when you post in the forum that the people answering questions aren't staff. If you don't provide enough information in your question, they'll have a hard time answering it. See "The First Consideration" below and make sure you include your information.

In this case, ads will not begin showing until you complete the PIN Process and enter your PIN -note that it can take up to 48 hours after entering your PIN/verifying your address before the ads display, so be patient. (See: https://support.google.

Wordpress.com: you cannot place Adsense code on Wordpress.com hosted sites, not even if they have a custom domain. Wordpress doesn't allow it, and the codes will not enter correctly.
Wordpress.org: if you are not using the official Adsense-Wordpress plugin and have placed the code manually, check to make sure it is not corrupt. Some templates will do funky stuff with the ad code (most often what we see is line breaks at the end of each line of Adsense ad code - you'd need to remove those. To install the official plugin if you want to try it see: https://support.google.com/

Blogger: if you are trying to paste the AdSense code into the <head> or after the <body> tag of the template's html you'll get errors. Paste the ad code into an html gadget for blogger (layout page, + New Ad Unit, paste code, position gadget), OR use an Adsense Gadget (layouts page, +New Ad Unit, Adsense Gadget), OR use the earnings tab of your blog to place ads in the sidebar and posts.
Other web builders: if you are using a website builder provided by your hosting company (like Godaddy's web builder, or Yahoo Site Builder) then you should ask for help at the support center for the product you are using. Unless one of the volunteers in the Adsense forum has used these other products, it isn't likely any of us can provide much help with specific products.
