New from AdSense: Allowed Site Feature
Tell Google Which Sites are Allowed to Use Your AdSense Code

First, let me say 'thank you' for adding nice feature that identify the domains that are allowed to display Google ads for my account. A few suggestions:

a) if ad spotted on a different domain an email alert should be sent to adsense login email id. So that further action be taken from my side. This is also useful if I forget to whitelist my own new domain name.

b) Please fix help link url https://www.google.com/adsense/support/bin/answer.py?answer=53473&sourceid=aso&subid=ww-ww-et-asui&medium=link

I'm so glad I stumbled upon this feature via webmaster world instead of finding in my account first, I tend to jump on new things without waiting for kinks to be ironed out. For sure going to wait until this gets ironed out a before I butcher my income.

As far as the prepopulating the allowed list argument. I side with idea of showing us everywhere say in the last month our code has appeared that way I don't erroneously cut my google cached pages income, or other legitimate sites that I may not have thought about where my adsense code may appear (ie. old partner projects where I wasn't the domain owner and may have forgot about the project entirely) Then after I do my initial pruning from the prepopulated allowed list I could have the option to make the list concrete (ie. I'll need to go in there and add the domain names of any new projects or the ads won't appear on those sites/pages) or I could set it on a whack a mole type setting where I'll have a box on the allowed page where new sites would appear and I could choose to deny or keep them on my list of allowed sites.

Nice move, ASA, it's a great feature.

if ad spotted on a different domain an email alert should be sent to adsense login email id. So that further action be taken from my side. This is also useful if I forget to whitelist my own new domain name.

I endorse that, I'd find that very useful indeed.

That is really a nice feature, but involves a lot of work by adding the whole network! Really cool would be, if they show all the domains automatically and let me exclude some by selecting them!

P!

Given the global reach of the web there needs to be a "built-in" way to allow or account for the Ads shown on Google Cached versions or Google Translated versions of pages. For those that watch their stats closely I'm sure you have noticed an occasional click from the Google Translate version of your pages. For those in Canada or in the South West I'm sure this number is considerably higher.

A few people raised the question about cached verisons and wether or not to add google yahoo and msn to allowed list but no one seems to have a definitive answer, even though there were some reasonable assumptions. Will adding google.com cover all like google.ca,.uk etc? Any chance of a quick follow up?

Don't forget the cached pages served up with image searches.

I may be wrong, but based on the way it's setup now I would say an almost definitive no. google.ca or .uk etc, are completely different domains outside of google.com and would have to be added separately.

Google and its caches should be loaded by default on the program.

I have turned it off until they sort this crap out, life is too short to have to keep checking your hit list to see if you are losing income.

Eventually someone will make a generic list that will cover all the search engine and major hosts, that we can cut and paste in.

Agreed. I'd like to see where the code is appearing. Sure, we can specify the sites where it should be allowed, but I want to see where the code is being shown to:
a) make sure I don't miss a site that I own
b) catch any funny business

I guess adding them shoud'nt stop them from displaying ads so I added all of them, and if we did'nt have to it was only the waste of a minute.

The Whack a mole list is a great idea, least its a little entertaining that way. They could use nice little animated moles for each domain.

So far this seems to be working ok...but, on some pages the ads seem to load slow (as if it is checking, etc.). I guess that might be the price to pay?

Any word from Ann or Green Grass about earnings stabilizing after turning the setting off?

I have stopped using this feature. Will wait for a month and then start again. Earnings are coming back slowly. May have been an unrelated dip.

I have stopped using it too. It said some unauthorized sites showed my code...of course, it was Google search that showed it. They were both Google IPs and I don't have time to go in and add a million Google IPs, LOL.

Step it up Google. Show us all the domains our publisherID has been used on (with links to specific URLs) so we A) Don't forget to add an old crusty domain making a few bucks here and there, and B) Can fire off cease and desists to any idiot using our code.

Ideally,
It should show a list of all sites using our code and I should be able to disable any site.

Well its been a couple days and seems ok, had to add 72.14.205.104
but i don't know if i can add the range.
Found a proxy server has been displaying my ads, wish i could list it here, more time wasted filing complaints, adding to htaccess, anyone else?

Would you settle for an IP address?

Google is doing that now with a message that says:

"There are unauthorized sites that have displayed ads using your AdSense publisher ID within the last week. Please click here to view them."

Although all of the IP's listed are Google IP's!

Hmmm. Must be cached pages.

Blogs hosted on Blogger / wordpress etc which have 1 or more ads from my account should also be mentioned in the list right?

msg:3446152
 9:34 am on Sep 10, 2007 (gmt 0)

Content Master, if you want to make money from those sites then, I would for sure add them to your list.

That's interesting Celgins. They are reporting themselves as an unauthorized site. So when you click to view the "unauthorized sites," can you select to add them to your allowed list?

I'm not going to consider using this feature until I can see exactly url by url where my ads are currently triggering impressions BEFORE the feature is enabled to block everything outside my list.

msg:3446337
 1:52 pm on Sep 10, 2007 (gmt 0)

No. It's just a list of IP's where Google says my pub-ID appeared over the last week.

I checked all IP's and the all belong to Google. My guess is that it's a cached version of my site, which would appear to Google to be an entirely new domain.

Looks like all the Google IPs listed end with ".104". For example: 64.233.167.104, 209.85.129.104

Maybe there is a way to add mask like *.*.*.104?

I'm not sure this is related, since I was doing a number of other changes at the time, but it appears they may have fixed a previous bug in the process. For about a year now, about since I started using ad_regions, previously the report by pages was showing three times the page impressions if I had three ad units on it (i.e. a page accessed 1000 times was reporting as 3000 page impressions). Naturally this dropped the calculated CTR for that page from say 12% down to 4% for the page. At precisely the time this new feature rolled out, the report started showing the correct number of impressions and my PPC doubled overnight for those pages (presumably because calculated CTR trippled?). Hmm, how long have I been penalized because of their bug?

A few days ago I tried this tool. Earnings dropped drastically. Went back to showing all ads and now only MFA sites and parked domains showing up in ads. Income cut in half. Before trying this feature, we had major competitors (commercial) on our site. This has been going on for a few days now. Are others seeing this or perhaps it's unrelated.

Maybe all those "unauthorized" sites were making you a lot of money. :)

I guess I don't understand the benefit of this option. I turned it on a few days ago after reading this thread, and I now have a long list (~50) of unauthorized sites using my ID in the last week (ahem, 3 days I guess) and a significantly lower CTR for the last few days.
Is that necessarily a BAD thing? Most of them are G IPs, Y, About and MSN subdomains. Question 1: how are THESE sites showing my ads? 2: what if everyone in the world were displaying ads with my ID, as long as I'm getting paid for them, do I really care?

msg:3449425

It says updates take a week so i suppose no ads on recently allowed sites. I am anxious to see an update because i have the lowest impressions and cpm in a year. Also, a few times this week I notice adsense login and reports seemed slow to load. It all indicates this feature is more difficult (and costly) to implement than they expected as Google does'nt earn revenue for non displayed ads either.

You should care. What if ads using your pub id are displayed on site which does not conform with AdSense TOS? You'd get banned one day. This option allows to list your authorized sites.
