Google AdSense Forum

Unauthorized sites using our adsense code to get us into trouble.
Reported them today.

Today, we found that an anauthorized site has put our adsense code on thier site next to a topless picture :o

We reported it to adsense and awaiting a reply.

Adsense gurus, how does google deal this this issue. Anybody could use our adsense code inorder to get us into trouble?

How did you find this?

I am seeing more impressions that are not tied to the URL channels I have created. I am sure this information would be very helpful for everyone.

how did you find the adcode, did you use a html code search engine?

I would like to know also. I have yet to figure out a way to search for my pub id.

From my experience, most of the time when you are getting a lot of impressions from channels that aren't yours means that scrapers were so busy when they scraped your content that they missed changing the adsense account ID ... Strange, but true ...

But is it profitable!

It be useful if you could see a list of domains that had generated clicks, without having to manually add them to the list of channels.

Yet another reason for us to be able to list "Authorised Domains" associated with an account.

The most important or the sole reason I think. This is such a soft stomach!

C'mon Google, we're asking for this feature for a long time here. This should have been done in beta.

A change now would mean no money for us until we realised the feature change! unless it's "all domains until selected"

The thing about notocing unrelated channel clicks, what if they steal the code that is channel specific? Unless its a dramatic increase you would never notice. It would be easy for someone to take your code, throw it on a porn site and then complain to adwords how thier adwords money is being wasted. Very scary, and im sure with some of the characters out thier its happens all the time.

Yes, Greedy. Good idea.

Based on the complete and utter inaction when I've reported real adsense violations that have wasted my adwords money, I doubt this would get anyone banned.

But, you never know. I too would be interested to hear how you discovered the person using your adsense code.
