Possible to Block Sites from Using Your Publisher id?
Unauthorized sites copying your content including adsense ads

 3:23 pm on Apr 27, 2007 (gmt 0)

A competitor stolen my content. He grabbed my site and changed some minimal things, then uploaded to another domain.
My original site contains adsesnse ads.
I assume he is not interested in making me win any money, just robbing my content to their benefit is enough.

He didn't use my ads but I wonder what happens if he do?

Is there any way to block sites from unauthorized adsense

May I report that to Google?

I would definitely report it to Google, but I do not know of any way to keep someone from copying your Adsense code.

It would be great if you may "allow" domains to show your adsense ads directly from your google account.

The same way you block in Adwords sites to not show your ads, it would be nice to count with a whitelist of your domains where code should be executed only.

I had the same thing happen to me recently--someone copied my index page and replaced my company's name with their's. But they left my adsense code embedded. I contacted the Adsense team and they turned my ads off on that page.

So the other firm is currently robbing your page still? I have a similar case here.

Myself and others have repeatedly commented that there needs to be a feature in the AdSense control panel where one could list the allowed domains. It would be even better if said feature listed not allowed domains that one's ads were showing up on. It would be a great way to catch really stupid site scrapers.

I agree. Cmon Adsense!

What is theproblem with other sites using your adsence code?

Sure there is a problem with your site being stolen, but at least you are getting income from visitors to that site. Doesn't rank low in terms of losing your site?

If you don't want the income tell the thief to get his own adsence account and change the ID over ...

What is theproblem with other sites using your adsence code?

The problem is when someone places your adsense code on a porn site (or soem other site with banned content). Google terminates YOUR account and you lose all your money because someone ELSE stole your ID. That's the problem.

And I agree, having a white list/black list feature (or at least a list of sites where your AdSense code is being displayed) is a much-needed feature on AdSense.

In my case, some crook stole all my content but replaced the Adsense ID with his then uploaded the content to his website. When I reported that to Google, I was asked to file a DMCA complaint though I thought that this was also an AdSense TOS violation. All I got was clicks to other pages that had links from that page. Not bad but I thought Google should have dealt with him considering he is violating AdSense TOS.
