If your site is linked to a platform partner, the platform partner may partially or fully control certain settings (called platform partner properties) on your shared traffic.
Shared traffic means any ad request where both your publisher ID and the platform's publisher ID are present. If your ad code has the
data-ad-host parameter present, then your ad code is considered to send ad requests as "shared traffic". Or, if your page has the
google-adsense-platform-account meta tag present, then all AdSense ad requests from your page are considered to be "shared traffic".
Check your site's platform partner properties
- Sign in to your AdSense account.
- Click Sites.
- In the list of sites, find your site.
Tip: Use the filter at the top of the page to quickly find sites in your sites list. You can either use the preset terms or enter your own search term.
- Click your site and check its platform partner properties.

Unlink your site
If you want to unlink your site from a platform partner, your traffic needs to stop being "shared traffic".
To unlink your site:
- Remove the
data-ad-hostparameter from your ad code.
- Remove the
google-adsense-platform-accountmeta tag from your pages.
- Either wait for AdSense to recrawl your site, or remove your site from AdSense and then re-add your site.
After your site is unlinked, your site's settings will be updated on the site's page.
