I just saw this new feature in my AdSense account. It's just like a peace of mind for AdSense publishers.

Not sure why someone would use it?
Please explain why/how this is usefull.

I, too, am glad this feature has finally come to the masses, after being announced several months back. I immediately enabled it upon learning about it here this morning!
By the way, I was fascinated to read on the set-up page for this that if your ads are run on sites other than allowed sites, that ads will still show, but the impressions and clicks are just ignored. Isn't there still a possible downside to this? Couldn't unscrupulous people be putting our adsense in places Google wouldn't like it to be seen?
However, at least now we (webmasters) are indemnified against possible damage from those kind of situations!

Many webmasters in the past have had circumstances where pirates have copied and pasted their web pages into the pirate's own site, many times without even taking the Google adsense code out. This would mean adsense with OUR adsense publisher ID would appear on THEIR site, leaving us liable for whatever Adsense TOS violations the other site engaged in.
Having the ability for us to limit where our publisher id is valid eliminates the possibility of being liable to this scenario.

Just activated mine and I am so glad for having this modicum of control!

One word: Outstanding!

But if you are on a subdomain.isp/mysite you have to allow the whole isp because folders or paths are not allowed! Other than that its great! But I have to allow my ads to run on a few of the biggest isp in the country! Oh well better than nothing.

Fantastic. Thanks Google.
Another good thing - "If you put your ad code on a page not on this list, ads will still be displayed, but impressions and clicks will not be recorded" - presumably means we can now test ad placement and see the type of ads which would appear on a new or unlaunched site without artificially inflating page impressions. If so, then double fantastic. ;)

But how can we be sure that they still dont log ip adresses and think you are stealing revenue? I hope they thought about that possibility!
And if so we could use the sites ip instead and view and test and see the ads destination online. But you try it first! :)

The Allowed Site option is gone now. It was there this morning. I just looked again and the link is missing. I guess they're working out some bugs.
I think I won't try this feature for at least a month. My motto with software is, never install until they've released Service Pack 2.

Still there and working fine here in the UK?
| 1:23 am on Aug 29, 2007 (gmt 0)|
Well I never activated it. Maybe that has something to do with it. However no one else has mentioned this yet so it's hard to say if this is a problem with my account or browser or?.

Huh? I don't get it. Who thinks who is stealing from who in this scenario?
| 1:33 am on Aug 29, 2007 (gmt 0)|
I activated it as soon as I saw it was available, but now the link is gone!
Hope they fix any problems the new feature might have.
BTW, the url was [google.com...]

Aaah, the perils of living on the edge ;) Mine's gone too.
| 9:56 am on Aug 29, 2007 (gmt 0)|
Mine's gone to :(
Thanks a lot Google, for nothing. You should let us have the feature WITHOUT the BUGS or not let us have it at all....You should not lift our spirits up like that on a false pretense.
That is no way to win friends and influence people. :)
| 12:12 pm on Aug 29, 2007 (gmt 0)|
You guys should know better, we learned with the cpa program not to test any of googles new "features" for at least 60 days lol.

On April 16, 2007 Google had a tip for publishers about new payment option via Western Union but so far no words from Google about this feature. Now Google Popped up with "Allowed Sites" feature and its gone now. I hope Google bring this feature back asap, because its a very usefull feature for publishers.
| 3:01 pm on Aug 29, 2007 (gmt 0)|
So is it coming back?
And has it already saved my preferences and partialy completed list of URLs?
If so then some of my earnings are currently being ignored! And I cant add the others to the allowed filter because its err, gone...
And if it does come back will it have saved my URLs or preference and continue as I left it? Or be blank...
| 3:49 pm on Aug 29, 2007 (gmt 0)|
Well I managed to get all of mine in it and guess what? One of them is now getting clicks but no money! That has never happened to me and I am upset about it, thank God it was one of my lesser sites instead of the flagship....I emailed adsense support about this but stll haven't heard back.
| 4:29 pm on Aug 29, 2007 (gmt 0)|
Marvelous! Mine too I suspect.

I'll agree that it wins no friends, but certainly does influence people. In this case, negatively.

This would be a great feature, if it was back online..
I wonder if this had anything to do with yesterdays incredible Adsense slow down..

Genuine1, I said 'look at' not 'click on'. Big difference. No-one's stealing anything. :)
I've no doubt Google would continue to log all clicks from all IPs no matter what they say to the contrary. I'm certainly not advocating anyone click their own ads. No no, never never.
I do however sometimes add the code briefly to a new site before it goes live in order to get ad colours right or see what types of ad might appear, (can't use Preview Tool, doesn't work on a Mac) and this artificially inflates page impressions.
If this new feature (when it reappears) stops this happening, that's a good thing.
| 6:41 pm on Aug 29, 2007 (gmt 0)|
where you guys see it.
I can not find it anywhere?
| 6:45 pm on Aug 29, 2007 (gmt 0)|
That's because it's not there anymore...
| 6:58 pm on Aug 29, 2007 (gmt 0)|
It came, and it went...
| 7:26 pm on Aug 29, 2007 (gmt 0)|
so what all this show?
Did it show all sites which have your adsense code?
it just give you option to add list of sites you want to show adsense on?
