Authorize your verified sites to display ads

Site authorization is an optional feature that lets you identify your verified sites as the only sites that are permitted to use your Google ad code. If you're particularly concerned about malicious use of your ad code by others, you might want to use this feature as a precaution.

What happens to sites that aren't verified?

If a URL displaying your ad code is not on your list of verified sites, ads will still show on that URL, and impressions and clicks will be recorded. However, advertisers will not be charged, and you won't receive any earnings for that site.

Our systems might attribute a few impressions to sites that you do not control and that do not directly have your ad code on them. Learn more about the possible reasons for this.

If you don't add a site to your list of verified sites, and you place your ad code on it, ads will continue to appear on the site but you won't earn from them. Therefore, please enable this feature with caution to avoid missing out on valid revenue.
