Why are filtered sites still showing?

When you add a domain to your filter list, it may take up to 30 minutes before ads from the filtered site stop appearing on your webpages. If you've waited longer than 30 minutes, and ads are still showing, here are a few troubleshooting tips:

  • Make sure that you've entered either the URL shown in the ad text or the URL of the website. Learn how to find the destination URL.
  • Make sure that you haven't entered a trailing backslash after the domain (e.g. www.example.com/)
  • Enter the domain instead of the entire URL. (e.g. www.example.com instead of www.example.com/path/page.htm)
  • Make sure that the URL was entered into the correct filter list, either under AdSense for content or AdSense for search.
