Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
But sure enough, i am now getting ads on my site that i have added to the filter over 1 month ago.
For those with a few questions.
Yes, i obtained the url from both the preview tool as well as copy shortcut, they are both identical, even when i add to the list it shows in red, DUPLICATE
just how many of these so called filetered ads, are getting through i wonder now, effectively stopping the ads i need and the big biggested problem, affecting clicks and income?
this really needs to be corrected immediately
based on past experience, they will pretty much ignore the problem if you don't provide proof, so use a screen grab program.
That may or may not be your problem, but if it is, the fix is simple: Just strip off everything but the root domain, including the "www."
baptist & babtist almost look visually identical, took me two tries on that one.
foolishurl com net org info biz
foolish-url com net org info biz
foolis-hurl com net org info biz
on and on and on.
Sometimes you have to block half a dozen derivatives to stop them, it's becoming a real problem
Have those of you who are still seeing filtered ads on your sites contacted Google Support?Yes. It was on another similar filter related matter. The resulting response was an email suggesting the problem was from my end.
There's really no point in complaining here if you haven't. It doesn't accomplish anything.
It was this thread that has reassured me that I wasn't going nuts when I previously made my original complaint to Google. Thanks to all those who have contributed to this this thread, I have now been alerted to the fact that the problem is real and still exists.
I would suggest that you rack up a few more posts before you coach other members on what should or should not be posted on a Forum.
I've been a registered member of WebmasterWorld for 3-1/2 years and was a very active poster in 2003-2004 using the screen name BlueFin. Unlike any other forum in which I participate, this one deactivates your registration after not posting for a certain period of time.
I've been an AdSense publisher since 7/1/2003, one week after it launched to the general web community.
I have seen bad adverts as well,and I havn't changed anything on my site at all!
Also the ecpm has dropped through the floor over the last 4 days which suggests low paying adverts have snuck back in.
Surely the problem is at googles end and the fixing of one site should resolve the others.
We are not the only discussion on the net at the moment on this topic, there are at least 2 other sites where the same situation if being complained about
Scurramunga, if AdSense Support said the filtering problem was on your end, what specifically did they attribute it to and what did they ask you to do to resolve it?
Why did you wait until a post came up that you disagreed with before providing this limited information?Does it really matter?
Regardless of whether I had experienced this problem previously or not the fact remains that threads such as this one DO alert members to problems that could otherwise pass unnoticed.
Why would the problem suddenly be at the webmasters end when we all have the same issues?
The problem is that the filter is not working...
This is the response from google (3 days ago)
<snip>An email acknowledging that the filter isn't working</snip>
In december I was hopping that the new quality landing page will kill MFA, but now MFAs are stronger than ever..
P.S. I would really love an option to ban *.info domains!
I have a feeling that there is no useful domain with INFO tld...

We just have to realize that MFA's are here to stay and another prudent method must be explored of how to deal with these guys.
