Stop Misuse Of Your AdSense Code Immediately!

STOP MISUSE OF ADSENSE BY OTHERSFor the last few months several AdSense Accounts were banned. Some of them were those who were ignorant of the malicious use of there Google Ads code by others. Newbie bloggers who are new to content generation and distribution field often display dummy ads on their blogs to put a better impression on their visitors. Sometimes they even run your AdSense Ads on their sites without letting you know.  This is what happened with us. While distributing free download copies of MONOP Template I forgot to remove the snippet of my AdSense code from it. As a result our AdSense Ads shown up on several test blogs of our readers with me completely ignorant. After one week I realized that I forgot to remove the code from the template and immediately took action and informed readers about the new updated monop copy. Unfortunately it was too late because the ads were running on several BlogSpot blogs, which were publishing duplicate content.

We recently received an email from Google AdSense team where we were notified that AdSense Ads have been disabled on one of our site that was running a content which is in complete violation of Copyright laws and their Terms of Service. This is what the letter said:

Google AdSense ad serving has been disabled to your site

You can clearly see that a BlogSpot blog was running our AdSense Ads without our permission and neither were we aware of it. The result was such that Ad serving was blocked to that blog and luckily our Account still stood active and we had enough time to react and inform AdSense Team that the URL mentioned in the Notification is in no way linked to us and we don't own the domain mentioned. I also asked them how to prevent people from misusing our AdSense code to which they gave a pretty precise, useful yet satisfying reply:

I understand that you recently received a notification that a site or URL
displaying your ad code was in violation of our program policies. If that
site or URL is not in the Allowed Sites List within your account, no
further action is needed and this issue won't negatively affect your
account in any way.
To add a site or URL to the list of sites that can display your ad code,
just follow the instructions in our Help Center at ( ).
It usually takes about 4 hours for any updates to take effect. However,
under certain circumstances, it may take up to 48 hours for your changes
to take effect.

  1. Mohammad,

    I'm surprised that you didn't use that Authorized Sites filter earlier. A lesson learned nonetheless. Be more careful next time, okay? :)

  2. Yeh homebiss its true I under-estimated the Ad code use and thought it wasn't important but thankfully the lesson was taught in a harmless way. :p

    I will get back to your for the +1 snippet display issue. Tried several way but didn't work. Your snippet code is appearing below every post title once it is added to the Template above data:post.body
    Lots of questions but I am sure we will arrive at a good solution.

  3. hey bro had a question. in my blogger stats i keep on seeing hits recieved from a url domar. ru i tried to open that site but it redirects somewhere else. i am worried that those hits night be by some automated system and google may ban me for that. how can i prevent it?

  4. There is alway's a way , so you can be safe , best of luck!

  5. i have 6 website,when i us this option after see that article hare ...enter all my website in that box one by earning was stop i remove that box make very much bad experience with me .....

  6. @harsh shah

    You may please look into this How to stop an IP from visiting your site?

    If it didn't work then please write an email to Adsense informing them about the domain. The URL is given in above post.

    Indeed it is buddy. :)

    Adsense will always inform you when sites are blocked. Keep accepting trustful sites for a week and then your revenue will get normal.

  7. great post buddy! nice to see U again!!!

  8. thanks for this information.

    i got this message from adsense
    "Your ads have recently appeared on websites you haven't authorized. To avoid lost revenue, make sure to authorize any sites where you display ads by visiting your account settings."
    why is it showing this message there any chance of being banned from Adsense. Should i specify only my sites URL in the authorization like you did ...
    kind regards

  10. @Dinesh

    That's perfectly normal. Since visitors to your website come from around the globe therefore they often use third party sites to translate your site. You may authorize access to all such domains that seem familiar. Accept them if they contain words like Google, bing yahoo, translate etc. This notification will bug you for a week or more but once all such websites are authorized then you can be at calm.

    Monitor your revenue too if you found that even after 1 week your revenue kept on decreasing then you may opt this option. But patience is worth it. hope this helps :>

  14. It was very interesting for me to read that blog. Thanks the author for it.
    I like such topics and everything that is connected to them.

    I would like to read more soon.

  15. @admin
    Its perfectly normal for such a drop. Make sure to change all links on your blog to this new custom one. It will take around two months for Google to redirect all your pages. You might also have lost PR but that is ok. On next update all your PR will get recovered.

  16. thanks Mohammad you are indeed a good human being.
    stay blessed.

  17. Can we add in your allowed sites list .Beside your website address ? Because when i added URL of my website adsense told me that you have some unauthorized sites and when i went to authorize that sites adsense told me to add to my authorized sites list .

  18. Your application is still being reviewed. You will see only the background of your webpage instead of live content ads until your account has been fully approved.
