I was just noticing the sites on my allowed sites list. I have always chose the option of picking the sites I want to allow for my ads. However, I'm wondering about the benefit of allowing *any* sites.
What do you guys do and why did you pick what you did? Is it really that important?
Basically, it works the opposite way. Allowed sites is about excluding sites you really don't want. The value of ads can go down with too many restrictions, so you will probably want to allow all sites as the main rule.
I think you mean allowed sites as in the domains adsense is allowed to run on with your Adsense ID.
This is a very safe way to go, and in no way affects your earnings. It simply means that no one can put your adsense ID on a site which is against Google Adsense ToS in an attempt to get you banned.
Yes... the actual "Allowed Sites" tab on the Adsense thingie. I have always been allowing only on hubpages and shetoldme. I kept thinking it was safer to do that as I have been doing, I just didn't know quite how having otherwise would be unsafe. It hadn't occurred to me that allowing any sites could get you banned.
It's very unlikely, and to be honest you would have to have someone VERY vindictive trying to take you down.
Chances are you would not be banned, or you would get reinstaetd, if anyone tried this. If you only work in a small group of websites however it is easy to set up, and why take the risk?
adsense allows most sites except Wordpress due to a change in plugin.
Allowed site is the best way to protect the adsense account.
