Google Adsense Access and Authorization


Recommended Posts

  • Administrators

I user Google Adsense on several of my sites to earn income off their traffic. A few days ago when I would look over my sites that are earning I saw 10-15 sites that were not mine. I browsed to the site and viewed the page source and sure enough they were using my PublisherID.

 

I don't have a clue why they are doing it, as I see their earnings showing up in my account. Either way I don't want this going on, what if they put my Adsense code on a site that isn't compliant with their terms of service? I don't want to risk my Adsense account so I decided to only allow certain sites that I specify to earn from the ads.

 

It was pretty easy to setup, here it is for anyone else that is interested.

 

1. Login to your Adsense account

2. On the left side click "Account settings"

3. Scroll all the way down to "Access and authorization", the first option there you can add any sites you want to allow to earn from the ads. You need to put them in this format domain.com . Do not do www.domain.com or http://www.domain.com ect... Just the domain.com will do.

Yeah, I'm wondering if it's someone I've sold a site to in the past, and they didn't know what it was? They kept it on thinking they would earn money somehow and copied the code to their other sites or something?

If running websites they would have to either be in the wrong career or pretty darn thick LOL

I think there are more people like that trying to make money in cyber space than there are not. That's why one of the best business in cyber space is scamming. There's a scammee arriving in cyber space every nanosecond.

This is indeed a great tip. I have read about people getting their Adsense accounts banned just because their competitors used their adsense code on unscrupulous sites. But we also need to authorize every site that we plan to use for Adsense otherwise the impressions and clicks won't be counted.

That's a frightening thought. Getting an Adsense account approved isn't always easy. To have it banned because some malicious person puts our Adsense code on illegal sites would be a very sad thing indeed.
