If you go into your Adsense account and follow this path (using the old homepage)....
HOME >> Account Settings >> Access and Authorization >> Sites authorized to show ads
You might see a few spammer sites who have scraped your pages and published ads with your publisher number.
There are over 100 unauthorized sites showing my ads. Guess who about 98% of them are owned by????
www.google.xx and www.google.co.xx and translate.google.co.xx and translate.google.xx
They are listed under....
Sites that you don't authorize, and place your ad code on, will still show ads, but won't generate any earnings.
So, why is google showing my ads? They are probably showing yours too if you go into your adsense account and look.
And, why are we not being paid?
What happens if we "authorize" these sites. Will we get paid or will they ban our account for publishin' ads on their domains?
