    Why does the Google Adsense URL Filter see


    www.thisname.com

    and

    thisname.com

    and

    thisname.com/

    and

    www.thisname.com/

    all differently? If you want to block thisname and they have each variation in their campaign, you have to block each one or they still get through.

    You can only block a-so-many URLs and that is a waste of 3 right there.

    If you block www.thisname.com, it should block every variation of thisname.

    Just doesn't make sense to me.

    Have you asked Google? They are pretty good about answering inquiries. What did they say?

    I wrote them the end of Dec. and never heard back.

    Maybe I should write them again.

    You might want to post on the AdSense section on WebmasterWorld.com. A couple Google employees frequent those forums.

    Surprising that you never heard back. Their customer service is really incredible for such a large company.

    The problem is - this setting is called a "URL filter" and they're not all the same URL. Depending on how the server in question is set up, they could deliver 4 different results.

    It would be better if Google offered both URL and domain filters (the latter catering for all subdomains and pages within).
