Ghost Adsense Pageviews on Expired Domains superdomweb 7/31/12 2:46 AM
Hey Guys,

Thanks a lot for taking the  time to do this.

Some of the domains I owned in the past and have since expired, (and remain available for registration even today) have started appearing in my reports.

No clicks, just a ton of page views. Though there aren't any clicks, I'm getting a little uncomfortable with this, as I don't this to turn in to grounds for Adsense to ban my account.

Other Information:

1) Google's search index has no cached copy of these domains
2) These domains were active websites which did have adsense on them back in 2010
3) Only Pageviews appear, erratic really, no pattern as such
4) Webhosting account that held these domains and sites is not active anymore, I've moved to another registrar

Any advice or anyone willing to share any similar experiences are welcome!

Thanks in advance guys,
S

Can't explain these ghosts in the machine, though many report them including myself, however if you have activated the allowed sites feature and have not listed these domains in there, any activity, however suspicious, will be totally ignored by the bots.

Thanks, I really appreciate the response.

I have authorized only a few sites, but was still concerned about the page views appearing.

Thanks a ton!
