I would like to include the IP addresses of these spy sites in the IP Exclusion...anyone doing this as well?

If so, can I have your ip list?

 

thanks

Rob

Hi Rob,
Unfortunately, you'll have to create this list yourself from your own data. There's no list in a repository or anything like that.

Also, these guys change their IPs frequently so it's almost pointless with a static list. As most of them don't generate any clicks, just quality score reducing impressions, it's difficult to use your own data. We just have to trust that Google is doing it's best to filter them out on their end.

Alternatively, you could contact them all and see if they'll give you a list of the IP ranges that they use. I know I'd pay for that list!

Good morning.

 

I'm not sure what you mean by "spy sites" but if you block the AdWords crawlers, your website will appear to be nonfunctional and your ads won't be eligible for serving.
