Someone Else Using Your Adsense Ads?

It so happens that it is so easy for someone else to use your Adsense Ad code, this can be a very troubling fact.I have seen many instances where people complain that other websites which they have not authorized are using their ad code.I have also seen many others complaining that their account was disabled due to some policy violations by sites which they had not approved, but were using their adsense ads.So what can you do to ensure that you do not end up in this kind of a predicament?

As you can see in the picture, in your Adsense Account you can check the sites that are running your adsense ad code in the "Sites" part of the report.I had this un-authorized website called 'harrisontechnologies' using my ad-code, now I do not know if it was on purpose or they used it inadvertently, but  I did not want them to use it.

So all I did was got to the allowed URL's option in my adsense account and set only the websites that I authorized to be able to use my Adsense Ads.

Once you have done this, the ads will continue to appear in the un-authorized websites but they will not be counted for any purpose.
