    Hi,

    One of our domains parked with namedrive has the following showing:

    This domain has been blocked

    Anyone else ever had this problem?

    Regards,

    Laura

    You normally get that when google has told namedrive that they will not be showing ads for the domain, for legal/offensive reasons etc. If it was that though Namedrive usually email you and inform you.

    Hi Grant,

    ND dont email to tell you that, I had a few "google" bittorrent" names which also showed the same, i just happen to try them one day and they was banned - I just moved them somewhere else and alls well.

    I did email ED about that - they really should let you know straight away.

    I've had emails informing me in the past so assumed they emailed you every time....Like you say, they should really inform you.

    I concur with the above - I had the same message for one of my, erm, "offensive" domains. It turned out that Google had said that they weren't prepared to serve adverts on it.

    If I remember rightly, Ed dropped me an email about it shortly after being notified by Google.

    Hello Laura,

    Sorry for any misunderstanding on this. I sent you a mail on Monday about the domain. I've resent the mail and sent you a PM to make sure :)

    If a domain shows "this domain has been blocked", it means it is done by us or the ND system - in which case a manual email is sent out - usually by Yours Truly.

    If a domain shows "blocked by advertiser", it means that Google, in all their wisdom, have decided to block the domain. For the last 10 weeks now or something now, these trigger an automated mail.

    Hope this clears up the situation.

    Ed
