I have been receiving clicks I can not account for through Adsense and it is driving me nuts. I am pretty certain I have,at the very least, every domain/subdomain my ads could possibly appear on tracked but there still seem to be regular clicks showing up for sites that I apparently don't know about.
I know, big complaint, you can't even keep track of where your money is coming from. But obviously I want to make sure all of my content is always complying with Google's rules and having a site I seem to have forgotten about that is seeing semi-regular attention is worrisome!
Is there any way I can track back where all of my adsense code is placed, or is this a fool's errand?
Umm, how about using allowed sites tab? Limiting the sites to whatever your url channels cover, and then checking in a week or so what "violating" sites it shows?
What Misha said, and then if you do get clicks on sites you've not listed it will actually show you were they're coming from (though you won't be getting earnings from them, but at least it'll narrow it down, maybe even save your butt if someone has just scraped your content whole including your Publisher ID and put it somewhere unsavoury).

In my google adsense, I noticed I am getting more income, even though I am not getting more clicks. At least 42 cents more from when i last checked, and no more clicks.Is this from page impressions?

I have heard people say they track where their clicks coming from, does it show you an ip address of the clicker? I am interested to know where mine come from but can't find it in Analytics(I have linked it to Adsense too)

I track my Hubs and articles on other sites through Google Analytics, of course. I didn't know what I was doing when I started, so I just began tracking them through URL channels. For a while now, I've been noticing Adsense money coming in that's not accounted for in my Anaytics. ...

I was reading that Google will know if you clicked one of your ads from a different computer with a different IP address. For example, you go to work and go to one of your articles on your work computer and click an ad. It's the same as going to an internet cafe and doing it there, basically. I...
