Site Authorization and Management
Since the publisher id can be misused by just replacing it in any ad code, Google allows publishers to authorize websites that display their AdSense ads for their publisher’s id. Publishers will not earn revenue from the ad click generated from the sites which are not authorized in their AdSense account. In order to authorize your sites, login to your AdSense account and go to “Account settings” tab. Under “Access and authorization” section click on the edit button against the option “Sites authorized to show ads” to add the sites displaying your ads. Once the sites are added they will automatically be added into your owned sites list under “Site management”.
