What happens if someone use my adsense code.

I was wondering if someone decided to open up my html code and then copy the adsense code on a site and then make repeated clicks on it. Will Google penalize me for that?

As a precaution i have decided to be placing my adsense codes in php files. What do you think about this?

How will PHP help you?

The code still ends up in HTML that can be copied.

I recently reported a page I found stolen to AdSense, complete with my AdSense code, tracking code and everything. AdSense support shut the ads on that page down ASAP, very nice of them.

Best I can recommend is installing some AdSense tracking scripts on your pages so if they're sloppy when they steal your pages at least you'll see your ad tracking code loading via a 3rd party server and get a clue where to go looking to stop them.

Pages get copied, not to mention cached, translated, displayed through proxy sites, etc. every day, and thus your AdSense code is already appearing on lots of different domains.

Thre's no way to give a definitive answer to every scenario that could occur, but I'm sure Google is well aware of this possibility.

Will not securing your websites via not permitting right clicking help.?..so as they can not see the source code.

Easy to get around that. View/Page Source in Firefox, etc., etc.

I have thought about this but it's not a foolproof method, people can always save the page and open it up in MS Word for example.

Disallow right clicks will only annoy your users but doesn't help anything in any situation. Please don't make your site worse by purpose.

Back to topic: I wouldn't spend too much thoughts on that, this is Google's job and I think they are aware of that.

You can put your adsense code in a .js file. ONLY allow access to that .js file if a page from within your site calls it. No one can see the code at all.

Well, I'm not a big player. Maybe a medium player.. certainly not small but I'm gonna take a shot at this anyway. What I do to "protect" my stuff is nothing at all. Get caught up in that mindset and you'll drive yourself crazy and in the end you won't have accomplished anything.

Why do you need to protect yourself?

Anyone anywhere at any time can get to your code. They don't have to copy it. All they have to do is find one line and paste it into their own code and they'll be able to do what you're talking about doing. You can't protect yourself from that. You can't guard against it. If you have the type of website or run with the sort of people that would require you to guard against this then don't be surprised if google bans you anway - whether you're responsible for the invalid clicks or not - just to get rid of you and not have to deal with it anymore..

There's a saying, "you're known by the company you keep."

I'd say that's especially true on the internet.

Totally ridiculous.

Javascript is executed in the browser. If a browser can access your scripts, then anybody who wants to have a look at them can see them.

They might need to save the page or use Information > View JavaScript in the Web Developer extension for Firefox though, so your method may slow down the process by two or three seconds...

Actually it's not a terrible suggestion. It would certainly stop most people from seeing the code, but:

(a) It would also stop maybe 10% or so of people from seeing your ads at all. There's no reason to cut your income by that much over a minor issue like this.

(b) It's against the terms of the AdSense agreement. Google don't allow you to change the code in any way.

Putting your js into an external file? How?

The referrer. If their browser isn't configured to send a referrer then they can't access the file. I think that's what the poster was suggesting.

Oops. Of course.

How about if your competitior(s) decided to do that?

Yeah, the referring URL isn't your domain, it can't be accessed. I've seen it in action. :)


(b) It's against the terms of the AdSense agreement. Google don't allow you to change the code in any way.

That's a good point, but technically, you're not changing the code. With Google, you WILL lose that battle though.

Aren't your competitors really part of the company you keep? In my area, I seriously doubt that any of my competitors would turn to dirty tricks to win out over my site or other ones.

In other areas, the competition may be much dirtier, and if you're in such an area, and being click-attacked, hacked, and so on, it's certainly possible that Google or another PPC company might not want to work with you. They don't want high-maintenance accounts.

Can someone enlighten me on what area,s might be bad neighbourhoods apart from porn and warez sites.?

whatsdoin,
Online Gambling sites hahaha

porn or free Porn is bad but the warez is worse

warez sites: what they do is pirate popular commercial software and sell to the public via Internet. Use and distribution of warez (wayrss) software is illegal ( win a free lunch in Dayton prison )

But nothing "on-par" with worst online gambling sites.
