Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Lately I noticed that some clicks recorded by Adsense not belong to any of my channels. I can't identify where these clicks come from. I am suspecting someone copy my web contents together with my adsense script without even changing the Adsense ID and put in their site.
If this is true, is there anyway for me to trace which site is using my Adsense ID?
I occasionaly get the same thing where my channels don't add up to the total clicks. Not sure where the extra views and clicks come from either.
Assuming that this is the case, and that your content is unique, copy a random sequence of 10-15 words from your page's content and paste it into Google's search box between quotes. You should find whoever copied your sites... and the Adwords as well.
Perhaps you could e-mail support and ask them, giving them a list of sites you put your code on and ask them to inform you of any unmentioned sites that are getting logged with your code.
What is there to worry about, just more money for you
I'd be worried they're doing this to have you kicked from adsense. Are you 100% sure that the clicks are not coming from your site? If so, I would email Adsense and ask if they could trace where the clicks are coming from.
Maybe you have some pages on your site you forgot about?
A tab under account settings named "my domains" or "my sites" where you list the domain names you are responsible from. All click and impression counts from other domains will be excluded.
No headaches, no nightmares.
For your attention Adsense Advisor.
dr_rizwan, I suggest you use a frame breaker. The best way is via .htaccess. Search the forum there's the answer.
The biggest concern with this type of theft. Is that they dont know what they are doing. They are likely to click what they think are there own ads repeatedly and cost you your account.
Check logs........ good luck
