Hi all,

Im pretty new to adsense, only started last week. One question i need to ask is can i block my own adwords adverts from being displayed on my site via the filter or is this not allowed.

Cheers

Not a problem, Google blocks your ad automatically. The system will not allow your AdWords ad.

You can block it via the adwords interface or you can block it via the adsense interface.

Re: the previous response that it's automatic? Uh, No.

My concern is that I really hope Google uses our filter lists to help determine smart pricing. In this case adding your site to the filter could conceivably hurt you.

lol ... it is automatic. Assuming your Adwords and AdSense account is setup properly with the same user login.

Care to provide some documentation on this?

If I'm wrong, it will soon be proven in this thread as others post.

One of the reasons for Google to not allow your ad’s to display is to discourage manipulation by publishers of the market price for ad’s that show on your web site. I think one of the reasons Yahoo! has recently changed their ad display from the “highest bidder” to now include CTR data as a factor, is to become more competitive with Google in the content network, by becoming less easily manipulated.

I have at times had my own ads showing on my own site. Things have probably changed now, but I was previously told my logins could not be the same (probably over a year ago). As it is now i have my Google Account login (everything except Adsense) and my Adsense login.
