What is this URL from display network?

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

Hi folks,

 

For my automatic placements on the display network I see a handful of URLs that look like this: "a4f2860b19279d5e.anonymous.google"

 

And the # impressions is not bad for my small soccer school!  

 

Anyone have insights regarding where the ads are showing?

 

THANKS, Chris

Hi Chris,

 

From this page:  http://support.google.com/adwords/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=2471191 here is a snippet that may answer your question.

 

"You might see placements marked as "123456.anonymous.google" in your results. Some publishers choose to offer placements anonymously and not disclose their site names to advertisers. Even though the publisher and website remain anonymous, you will still have access to the reporting statistics from the ad placement."

 

Hope this helps!

 

-Tom
