Please also do same with themaven.net/ads.txt file.
Google AdSense appears to be highly agitated that this has not been done.
Do you have something on the Maven properties? Why would you want your ads showing there? Your pub-Id should only be on websites that you place your content and on websites you trust. If you have something on themaven, I think the HP forum is the wrong place to ask for inclusion, contact themaven directly.
AdSense is telling me my ads are showing up in all sorts of places I didn't know about. I knew our hubs are showing up on maven.io, etc. But I'd always thought we were already getting paid for them; AdSense says not so. If HP and Maven chat, something will get done.
You would be smart to contact the team about this because if you got this notice, then all of us will get it and we need a way to resolve the issue.
Emails get ignored/buried/misplaced/lost/etc. This official forum thread will not. Maven and HP will figure it out and fix it.
Plus, Google Console already botched up my website; maybe Google AdSense has botched this up as well.
Whatever is going on, I figure everything will be straightened out by the end of the week.
Well, please let us know what happens with this. I'd also like to know if anybody else got this notice. I have not. Also, I wouldn't have the first clue as to how to fix it so will need help from our gurus here if it becomes a big issue. Thanks for sharing this info.
This will only be an issue if you have added themaven.net as one of your properties on Adsense. If you did this and do not have any articles on themaven.net your pub-id is definitely not on their ads.txt file. Why will it be there if your ads don't show, right?
I am not sure why OP has added the maven.net to the list of websites. As far as I know, PD has no property under themaven.
Sondra, this won't be an alert you'd see in your Adsense account anytime. Don't worry about it.
I just want AdSense to stop saying:
"In the past 7 days, your ad code has appeared a significant number of times on sites you don't own. To avoid lost revenue, make sure to add these sites to your verified sites list in My Sites."
"Earnings at risk - One or more of your ads.txt files doesn't contain your AdSense publisher ID. Fix this now to avoid severe impact to your revenue."
"You need to add your publisher ID to the following ads.txt files:
But your ad should not show on themaven right? If it is showing there you are better off not verifying it as you don't publish there, correct me if I am wrong. What if it shows on some page that is against the Adsense TOS and you lose your account? Warnings are okay sometimes.
"But your ad should not show on themaven right?"
What with HP and Maven intertwining into a single entity, who knows what the heck is going on?
"What if it shows on some page that is against the Adsense TOS and you lose your account?"
You just made me remember that blogger.com allows p o r n. So I unverified that one. All other verified sites are reputable; namely HP, Maven, and my websites. Come to think of it, does Maven .net or .io have any pages that violate AdSense TOS!?!
RANT FOR THE DAY:
When AdSense says, ""In the past 7 days, your ad code has appeared a significant number of times on sites you don't own."; WHY DOESN'T ADSENSE TELL US WHO THE SITES ARE!!!???!!!
You need to add your blog to the safe list and not blogger.com.
Add paradigmsearch.blogspot.com to the allowed sites.
Again, you have no articles on themaven, up to you if you want to continue worrying about it HP is not going to add your pub-id to the maven ads.txt file, because you have no content there.
My verified sites already included both the blahblah.blog spot. com and the custom domain. com names; all is already well there. At the same time I had also included blogger and blogspot as a catchall; that was dumb. Thread not a total waste; got rid of those dangerous last two.
Meanwhile, as the intertwine continues, checkout https://maven.io/
Yup, I think that's just their search page.
Now check out https://maven.io/ads.txt
Seems like the ad IDs of their advertising partners. There are just 13 Google Adsesne IDs there.
Your searches on the .io domain take you to other websites on the Maven network including the HP niche sites.
The same way you don't have your adsense ID on Google.com you won't have it here either.
Based on my aforementioned conclusions, I'm only going to give one hint and then I'm dropping the subject.
Compare what is with what is not in the ads.txt file.
I have read most of the thread and have concluded that halibut is better than haddock if you can get it and afford it. I think I've got it.
