Enable Allowed Sites in Google AdSense?

I set my own domains on Allowed Sites in Google AdSense last 2 months. Somebody was trying to sabotage me by clicking lot of the ads. I had no choice and enable own domains to be counted in Google AdSense only. However, I discovered that it was not a perfect move. Yes, it does stop the sabotage act but it also reduces my Google AdSense earning. Why?

Okay, not every visitor will come to your website directly. For example, a visitor translated your website using Google Translate. Google AdSense does not detect your website address but Google Translate address. Therefore, the earning is not counted there. Besides Google AdSense, Nuffnang also use that method to display its ads. But we can’t do anything here.

Funny Chinese translation 😛

I already set Google AdSense back to Allow any site to display ads for my account. Let’s see the earning will be up or not…

  • To suppose you have a small site, with Google AdSense activated and set only your domains for Allowed Sites. If somebody start to click many, many times on your site ads, Google will penalize you or what happens? Of course Google will not pay you, but will he penalize you?
    Is it a way somebody to “sabotage” you?
    Have any idee from your experience or from others?

  • Wow, didn’t aware of this factor. Anyway I didn’t use translation anymore because all the contents will sounds weird :p

  • SK

    I do hope you find whoever doing the multiple clicks on your sites.

  • This is a good finding. But if we enable adsense in all sites, then how to prevent the invalid clicks like what you encountered last time?

    • So far I did not see any unusual click after enabled all sites back. Don’t know how to prevent it now. But earning still the same. 🙁

  • emm..so, still good or not after you have done that tricks?

  • i am really very thankful that Google launched the Adsense program. this enables most of us who owns several websites to work at home.

  • i see. This is nice tips.

  • i love google Adsense, it enables me to earn money on the websites and forums that i have put up several years ago. if you got tons of websites, you can earn a lot from Adsense alone

  • If “the earning is the same” I think is better to use Alowed sites option in Ad Sense.
    Anyway you will be informed if other sites (not from the allowed list) try to use your ads and you can check them. If is the case ,latter you can ad them to your allowed sites list.
