    My competitor used my Adsense code and placed it in a crap blogspot obtaining lots of clicks (which is also done by my competitor). The very worst is I can't identify who did this because they are using blogspot. Anyway I already blocked allowed sites in my adsense account but I want to know who did this to me.

    Did someone here experience asking Google/Blogger to identify who owns a certain blogspot?

    That is why you should always utilize the allowed sites feature in adsense. I highly doubt google will tell you the identity of your competitor. What I would do is email them explaining the situation, and hope you don't get banned..

    You can set which sites to allow use of your AdSense ID in your AdSense options.

    Luckily my friend discovered it earlier, it was so lucky also that new adsense interface displays the sites (whom I don't own) where clicks came from that I think old interface don't have the capability (correct me if I'm wrong). After then I setup immediately the allowed sites in my account, but I'm not alone on that blogspot, those f**king competitor placed 3 adsense code accounts who are number 1(mine), 2 and 3 in Google rankings for certain keyword.

    if you do not own your all subdomains yes put www otherwise all subdomains are also being allowed.

    No www, that is the instructions in allowing sites.

    Update: My adsense account was banned last night with 2.1K$ earnings, supposed to be released at the end of this month... :eek:

    Though the reason was not the placement of my adsense code and click fraud in a crappy blogspot (made by my competitor), I just used a trick that earns 2K$ in one day.
