|Should I contact Google about this? |
Yes, right away.
Yeah, contact Google so they can be aware of it, but also be sure to contact the school and get them to take the page down.
Contact Google now. Who knows what else this little thief is going to put on that page.
There is another thread on here with someone who has had the same problem. Maybe worth sticky mail to him and find out if there are any common features between the two of you that have made you both targets.
Got me real worried though - I have thousands of pages - on numerous sites - could be happening all over the place!
Is this a new scam that is going to blight us all?
It would be nice if we could add a list of our sites to our adsense account and google could flag any adsense code that shows up on another site for us.
It seems (without being the one to have to code it) that it would be fairly simple.
I quite agree. Surely it would be in Adsense interest to stop this fraudulent activity before it gets too much of a hold. Has anyone else out there had this problem?
But why isn't Google adding this option? Should be fairly easy to implement and will get rid of problems like this for good.

Get a grip. Some college kid saved a copy of your webpage to a directory that happens to be publicly accessible. That's all. This kind of thing happens every minute of every day.
Unless you have some reason to believe something nefarious is going on, I wouldn't worry about contacting either the university or AdSense. If Google can't handle a situation as simple and common as this, we're all in a lot of trouble.

This is one of the things about the program that is the hardest to fathom. I think if we go back on this board we'd find publishers asking for this for a couple of years.
Kind of a unique situation, publishers asking for something that will strenghthen Adsense and Google, besides not addressing the request, just totally ignores it.

Perhaps, we are missing technical aspects of this?
