Mysterious AdSense Impressions

Postby James » Fri Aug 28, 2009 5:26 pm

I created a niche Blogger blog two months ago and for the last 30 days it has around 30-40 unique visitors per day. I slapped AdSense 2 weeks ago and it was all good, around 40 impressions and 10% CTR. But last 5 days, I get more than 200 impressions daily while my Statcounter shows the usual 30-40 uniques daily. And the CTR is now 2%.

Does anyone have similar experience with AdSense impressions out of nowhere? I don't mind low CTR, since I am not in smart price and the earnings are fine from the real users clicking the ads. But I don't know where are those impressions coming from and I am not sure can they hurt me (meaning, losing my AdSense account or something).

What say you?

You could try including the blog's URL in the list of URLs allowed to show under your account (in your adsense a/c config) to prevent 'extra' impressions on other sites that might have taken your ad block code?

You're right, I could do that. It just didn't cross my mind that someone would take my ad block and use it somewhere :-?
