If you’ve got a Middle East based website/blog/etc and use Google Adsense you may have noticed an increase in the number of spam/matchmaking/asian dating/arab dating/escort banners appearing on your site… probably not the first thing you want clients to see on your website.
It’s pretty easy to block these adverts, simply log on to your Google AdSense account, click on the AdSense Setup tab, select Competitive Ad Filter and paste in the URLs you’d like to block. Simple right? Not really… these websites have gotten smarter and have bought a number of domains (with minor variations in the domain name) so for every site you block a new one pops up the very next week.
So I’m compiling a list, which will be continually updated, for anybody out there looking to block these websites. Simply copy-paste the entire block to your Ad Filter list and your site should be spam free!

Thanks @nikhilsoneja, chris
If you spot an banner that you think should be added to this list, post a comment and I’ll update the list.
