Just looked under "performance reports" and click on "sites" in left column to find a rogue site listed. Obviously someone has scrapped some of my pages with the adsense ad codes.

I have not authorised this site so why is it showing up with page view? More importantly, how do I get rid of it? Help!

Account Settings > Access & Authorisation

You allow or block sites from showing your ads here. Very important to keep an eagle eye on this.

Did check! However, the site is NOT listed in Access and Authorisation... so why are clicks and impression being counted... that is the issue...

Straight from AdSense:

Unauthorized site
Sites that are displaying your ad code which are not included in your authorized sites list. Clicks and impressions from these sites will appear in your reports, but you will not generate earnings from them.


Apparently nothing you can do about the clicks and impressions, you just won't earn from them unless they are in your authorized list.

That sucks.

Yea, but if they're not on your list, you probably won't get penalized for it, at least.

Do these rogue impressions effect CPC and CTR?

Also in webmaster tools I have set preferred www.mysite.com however with adsense I still get mysite.com impressions and click and they are my sites but no earnings... so how do I list them to earn the revenue at adsense... as setting URL only offer one alternative...

Webmaster tools has nothing to do with your Adsense account. What did you allow there. If its dubdubdubdotyoursitedotcom consider deleting the first dubdubdubdot part.

Seen this post so many time, I think something is UP!

If someone took your content and also scalped your ads, let it run!

Free earning for you "well not free, they are using your content, so you deserve to be paid".

Just ignore it.

If you fear, people will click on the ads and it will get you banned "BS" who ever took it won't click the ads, because they will not get paid "you will".


If you dis allow it, Google get to monetize your scalped content for free, while using your own adsense ID.

It's not free earnings.

Read the quote above I took off the AdSense site, they count the impressions and clicks, the earnings are discarded.

It's a DMCA issue at a minimum.

@incrediBILL, I presume CMidd means don't use the allowed sites feature, or add the site to your allowed sites.

I would never risk my AdSense account like that - it's not only clicks to worry about, but anything that could get you banned (e.g. inappropriate content on their website).

I have the same issue.

I wish they would simply allow us to delete ads. This would be the cleanest, easiest way of dealing with it in my opinion.

The fact that they show up in the reports make me think they are effecting the rest of the account as far as smart pricing and overall stats.

I don't think it would kill google to let us delete/disable these ads.
