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 [google.com...]

Yeah,
It killed one of my sites that I had in it when it disappeared and is screwing up the whole earnings picture! Lucky me! it wasn't the oldest site!

I will probably have to remove all adsense off of it and put something else on it.

Right here at the end of the month...Oh I get it, an end of the month money trap. hmmmm

Maybe if it gets straightened out they will replace the click money for that site....:( It don't help right now as it has caused a biiiig depression in ecpm and ctr as well as take home pay..Google please hurry.

ashii:

It gave the publisher the ability to specify which sites your Adsense is valid on. It's a feature many of us have been asking for for quite a while.

Mr. ASA, was it all a mistake? Can we please have the feature back?

I think they should have at least populated the list with the domains Google already knows about. That way it'd at least have a lower chance of having a domain accidentally left out.

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the delayed update - I've been trying to find out as much as I could about this situation in order to make sure I passed along accurate information to all of you.

We're very happy you're all so excited about the new Allowed Sites feature. Unfortunately, we had to temporarily roll back its release, but expect to see it in your accounts again soon. We hope that it helps alleviate many of the concerns publishers have had about code theft and click sabotage.

In the meantime, our engineers have confirmed that we deactivated any settings you made yesterday, so your ads will continue to monetize as normal on all sites.

Again, we're sorry for the inconvenience and confusion, and appreciate your patience.

-ASA

Thank you ASA,
Please tell me why for the first time ever I am getting visitors and clicks but NO MONEY. We are not talking about massive influx of visitors or even hundreds of clicks so can you shed light on this? It only happened after the allowed sites feature went away.

Thanks,

Ann

ann, if you (or anyone else) are seeing strange AdSense performance that seems to correlate with this Allowed Sites release and withdrawl, you're welcome to PM me your pub ID or account login and a description of the behavior, and I'll be more than happy to escalate it to our engineers for investigation.

We want to make sure this temporary release didn't leave any weird loose ends...

Thank you ASA,

It appears to be back but at a shameful low price per click...at least it is resolved and yes, I do believe it was the new feature that caused it..

The Allowed Sites feature is back!

And it's also doing a new thing, it lists sites not on your allowed list that displayed your adsense code in the last week. For me, the list was all Google and Yahoo.

I just saw that. It is giving me an IP number that belongs to Google and I have to suppose that it is because I use the Custom Search Engine (CSE) with AdSense enabled on it.

So, anyone know if I should allow it by the IP number (which could possibly change) or if I should allow "google.com"? Or both?
