    My adsense report says I have a blocked url that looks like this

    http:/ / images. google. co. kr/ imgres? imgurl= http:/ / z. hubpages. com/ u/ 914948_f260. jpg&imgrefurl= http:/ / hubpages. com/ hub/ Thomas-the-Tank-Engine-and-Friends-Favorite-Characters--books-videos-and-toys&usg= __y3E9RrCgNVuxLb1bdmK3V5b2OI8= &h= 346&w= 260&sz= 13&hl= ko&start= 113&um= 1&tbnid= Ma2YEZnTggSzaM:&tbnh= 120&tbnw= 90&prev= / images%3Fq%3Dthomars%2B%2526%2Bfriend%26ndsp%3D18%26complete%3D1%26hl%3Dko%26lr%3D%26sa%3DN%26start%3D108%26um%3D1%26newwindow%3D1
    Reason Robots.txt File    date crawled 26th May

    Is this anything to worry about? It seems to be a google images problem. The hubpage seems fine and all the images are working.

    I wonder if anybody else has had anything similar happen and are there any consequences or actions I can take?

    There is nothing I can do about a robots.txt file on hubpages or google images is there?

      No. The only thing you might try is to delete that image and reload it.

        Thx I will try that. Although I have to work out which image it is from the insane URL.

          Actually - I took a look and it doesn't seem to be a particular image. I think it is the slideshow. So probably not worth worrying about.

            Glad you think so. I decided to have a drink and worry about it tomorrow. Cheers.

      I am really not sure if I have understood your question well.  From what I have understood is that it says you have a blocked url.

      In adsense after logging into adsense, there is a setting for competitive filtering (in adsense setup tab) where one can block urls.  This is to prevent your competitor from showing ads on your site.  This can also be used to block ads which you do not want to show on your site (which you have already seen on your site).

      I think you have the following url there.  Just delete what is in it and the url will get enabled.

      I think it is something you accidentally added.

      If there are other urls that can earn money, it is worth worrying, else it is not.
