List of Blogger Country Domains for Adsense

Recent changes to Blogger has meant that blogger blogs are being redirected to the country in which visitors are visiting from. For instance, my address was previously Because I am Australia, it redirects to Google Support states the following:

Why does my blog redirect to a country-specific URL? (ccTLD)

Q: Why am I seeing a URL change?
A: In the next few months the website address of a blog you're reading may be redirected to a country-specific domain. For example, if you're in Australia and viewing [blogname], you might be redirected to [blogname] The country-specific domain should correspond to the country where you're currently located.

Q: Why is this happening?
A: We are doing this to provide more support for managing content locally. If we receive a removal request that violates local law, that content may no longer be available to readers on local domains where those laws apply. This update is in line with our approach to free expression and controversial content, which hasn’t changed.

Can't Access Your

You can still access your the .com version of your Blogger blog by typing: http://[blogname] – which always goes to the .com version of the blog. The “no country redirect” (ncr) will temporarily prevent Blogger from redirecting readers to the local version of the blog.

What does this mean for Adsense? 

You have to authorise your sites with Google Adsense otherwise the ads that are displayed. E.g. at I will not receive a commission because I have not authorised the site. I am particularly hurt by this as a significant amount of traffic comes from Malaysia. This should increase your Adsense page views, Clicks and Page CTR. Google Support explains it best:

What happens to sites I don't authorize?

If a URL displaying your ad code is not on your list of authorized sites, ads will still show on that URL, and impressions and clicks will be recorded. However, advertisers will not be charged, and you will not receive any earnings for that site. Our systems might attribute a few impressions to sites that you do not control and that do not directly have your ad code on them. Check possible reasons for this.

If you don't add a site to the authorized sites list, and you place your ad code on it, ads will continue to appear on the site but you won't earn from them. Therefore, please enable this feature with caution to avoid missing out on valid revenue.

How do you Authorize sites to display ads 
Site authorization is an optional feature that allows you to identify only specific sites that are permitted to use your Google ad code. If you're particularly concerned about malicious use of your ad code by others, you may wish to use this feature as a precaution.

How to Authorise your sites
1. Sign in to your account
2. Visit the Home tab, then Account settings in the left hand panel
3. In the "Access & authorization" section, next to "Sites authorized to show ads," click edit.
4. Check the box marked Only allow certain sites to display ads for my account.
5. Enter the URL of the sites that you want to authorize, then click save

Your changes should take effect within 48 hours.

Use the following complete list as a guide to adding all the blogger country domains. Also note that if you add invalid domains the page will tell you. Do not edit these manually. CTRL + F then replace all dishingtech with the name of your blog with a text editor. Do not add http://. I have also added a number of other ones that get used quite frequently. Another good place is to see your traffic stats and you will know from where you are getting traffic. Unfortunately you will miss some because of some websites will use iframes and you code. However, if you do this 99% of ads that are clicked should generate you more much deserved revenue.

Worried about Not Listing Authorised Sites?
Google Adsense will let you know on the home page if you are losing revenue because you haven't authorised a number of sites by displaying this message:

Your ads have recently appeared on websites you haven't authorised. To avoid lost revenue, make sure that you authorise any sites where you display ads by visiting your account settings.

Be sure to check regularly and authorise them^

Note that many do not exist yet, but they may in the future (e.g. CN = China). Better to be safe than sorry :) 

Other Useful Ones (For Myself and Others)


  1.  You have included in other useful ones. This number is also shown in my account as unauthorized site but when we don't exactly know what is this, how can we authorize it. Can you please tell what this number represents.

  2. Hi Droy, you can simply type that url in your favourite browser to find out what it is. All websites have an IP Address style directory. But people remember names and words better. It is the Microsoft Translator:

  3. Do you know what is for and why it shows our ads?

  4. Pretty sure it is when our sites are framed inside of facebook. Similar to an iframe. It just shows where the ad was placed. I strongly suggest you add this one.

  5. most of the "*" in the above list are not working/dead or don't exist. is there a better way to figure this out?
