On Adsense, you now also have to verify your sites, not so that the ads will be shown, but to actually earn the revenue off the ads, the ads still get shown regardless. So now, you have to add or at least it appears you have to add each and every blogspot domain to receive any click through advertising. Using Analytics and Adsense reporting, I am now up to 43 domains added to the list of verified domains.
I don't know how many there are, but Google not making this very end user friendly. They could have at least let us use wildcards, so I could simply add http://qatar-is-calling.blogspot.*
I haven't found any specific guidance on dealing with blogger country redirects and adsense site verification
Something to be aware of if you are doing something similar and haven't looked or checked for a while!
It sounds like a total crap!!!
If ads are shown, but you do not get credit for because of different domain names (created by Google), than I even tempted to say: 'Don't be evil'[^]...
By the way - have you added 'co.il'?
Skipper: We'll fix it. Alex: Fix it? How you gonna fix this? Skipper: Grit, spit and a whole lotta duct tape.
I had actually seen this in a couple of places when I was investigating options for managing this, I have since added these things to the template to see how it changes things...particularly in the analytics and adsense reporting.
I knew a French guy who spoke absolutely perfect English, unlike Mercans, without even a trace of an accent. Whenever a lady of the female persuasion was in earshot his speech would *miraculously* switch to a Gallic drawl with plenty of shoulder shrugging and "how you say"'s.
For fun back in my university days I used to do an Aussie accent and got quite good at it. I was thinking of emigrating there from the UK (at that time - this never happened) so I was also researching all things Australian, the culture, the geography, flora and fauna, etc.
I eventually stopped doing this when at a party a friend introduced me to this very pretty girl with, "Hey, you should meet Bob, he's Australian!". It turns out this girl was very interested in all things Australian and my friend thought it would be a great jape for me to pretend I was from down under!
I ended up going out with her for two weeks, keeping up the pretense all this time. It got to be really hard work. I was supposedly from Dalby, New South Wales (randomly picked from a map) and had to describe life there and everything! She was an amazing girl and I wanted to continue my relationship with her indefinitely so I had to "come clean" and hope she forgave me!
She didn't. End of relationship and of any "foreign" accent games!
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
