Are filters for example.com and www.example.com different?
It seems that we should set both.

Hello, on the ads filter page https://www.google.com/adsense/filter-edit
it is written that
example.com filters all sub domains.

However, after I set the filter for example.com a couple week later I noticed the ads from example.com again. More exactly it was www.example.com. It was the same site, however the page ranks for the example.com and www.example.com were different so probably Google saw them as different pages.

However the filter should filter the domain and not the page.

Does Google considers www.example.com and example.com as different domains? Should we set the filters for both?

P.S. I have the same problem with another filtered site so I have two real samples.

Hmm, that would be pretty bad if they didn't filter it on the domain side and considered any host name to be different.

I have been curious about this myself.

Oh! //www.yoursite is actually a sub-domain of //yoursite

Need I say more?

Yes, I need to! Loads of screwed-up domains for SEO purposes all over the Net!

I have just check them with wget.

www.examle.com and example.com seems resolve to the same domain and the same page for the both cases. So I still cannot understand whyh Google does not filter www.example.com with the filter set to example.com.

Optirex, are you saying that filtering http://example.com resolves this issue?
Got a few http://www.example.com's in my own filter...

If you block example.com, ads will also be blocked on www.example.com.

However, if you block www.example.com, ads will not be blocked on example.com.

So, there is no need to filter both, but make sure to remove the 'www' if you want to block ads across the entire domain.

Hope that clarifies!

Thanks ASA! Got some work to do with my filter!
It appears I have been doing this wrong all the time!

If you block example.com, ads will also be blocked on www.example.com.

Unfortunately, AdSenseAdvisor, I have two specific examples when it is not so.
Example.com does *not* block www.example.com

Could it be the spammers' tricks, Google bug or what is it?
