Blocking websites from adsense doesn not work

I noticed lots of people who are affiliates of dating sites place ads on googleadwords themselves.

So I want to block all urls from affiliate programmes and only have direct website links.

However the description about how to get the url does not match the url structure:

[pagead2.googlesyndication.com...]
The actual URL of the ad that you will want to filter can be found between the url?q= and the &sa= portions of the address.

There is no?q and &sa on my links....

In the add URL section, just add the domain.ext. If i wanted to ban WW I would enter ...

webmasterworld.com

And it does work. What I did was, I did a search for KW and then took all the domains that I wanted blocked and blocked them.

To get the domain name, you can click on the Ads By Google to get a page of advertisers in that group. DO NOT CLICK ON AN ACTUAL AD whatever you do.

You can also block ads using whatever URL they display in their ad (under the description on certain AdSense ads)

Those are likely affiliates advertising - most will state something like "Aff" in their description. You can just go ahead and block domain.com and www.domain.com and it should block all affiliates for those sites.

Well, those people are assuming certain risks. It is not like they are not doing anything. I think is best to block sites only if you find the target/product/service objectionable. Even then, I think it should be up to the consumer to decide in most cases.

Yeah, I'm a pretty laissez-faire kind of guy myself, but that's his inventory, and in my book he gets to decide how it gets used (within the TOS, etc. etc.).
