Want to delete old sites from your Google AdSense accounts? For example, I recently sold one of my WordPress blogs, and I had to scrub all my information from the blog before handing it over to the new owner.
I removed my Google AdSense code, Analytics, and other info that could be linked to me or my other sites. Students and new users who have gone through similar situations or may have deleted a blog and want to remove the blog’s info from AdSense can follow the guide below.
Remember that one can not delete sites from an AdSense account as long as the sites have historical financial records.
One can not delete sites from a Google AdSense account, and I believe it’s because sites with historical accounting information must be kept for a certain length of time. I don’t know. To prevent unauthorized use of AdSense code, one can validate (verify) all working sites and invalidate (unverified) sites not under your control.
Verified sites are those you identified and can use your Google ad code. If you’re concerned that someone may use your ad code maliciously, you might want to use the verified sites feature.
Even if your Google ad code is used on sites you do not verify, it won’t hurt your standing with Google, and those ads won’t generate earnings. So, the safest way to protect your AdSense account is to invalidate sites you have no control over and only permit your ad codes to be used on verified sites.
Authoring your verified sites in your Google AdSense account
To authorize all your verified sites, log on to AdSense and select Settings on the left, as shown in the image below.
Next, click My Sites, Manage Sites page, click the More options, and select Verify sites.
Then, check the boxes next to all the sites you control and uncheck the ones you don’t control anymore.
Next, click the Manage Sites option again and select Site authorization
Finally, turn on site authorization and save.
Save, and you’re done. This is how you configure AdSense, so you’re not a victim of malicious behavior. The site verification feature will only allow users to use your Google ad code. If an official site uses your ad code, it will still show but won’t generate earnings from them.
