URL cannot contain a Google host

Google just opened up Knol to the public. Knol is also serving up AdSense advertising on the site. Authors on Knol can enter their AdSense data into Knol, and will get the regular AdSense payout for every click on an ad. This seems like a smart way to reward users who write the best (or most popular) content, while still making money for Google, because the cut Google already takes from the advertising through AdSense anyway.

Currently, I don't know how may we track ads performance on knol, I tried to add an URL channel, and got error message:

"" at line 1 invalid: URL cannot contain a Google host.

Has anybody any idea of how to do it?

I'm getting this error for host, there is no problem with my blogs at ( or with my pages hosted on

Therefore I tried to create custom channel for IP which is returned for ( command line "ping" ). I didn't get any result for this, will see what will happen...

Crazy good idea. Please report your result.

unfortunately, there is no hit from this channel today, maybe there will appear something in next few days.

Does anyone have something about this?

The fact is that I have tracked all of my adsense resources except Knol + I have several hits which are not tracked, so they must come from Knol.
Another fact is that if you paste IP into browser, you are redirected into Google homepage, not into Knol, so I'm not sure if it's right way of tracking.
is good artikel for ads

Vodafone Router Configuration for Incoming Connection and other Services

This post is about specific Vodafone Home Broadband Router configuration for Incoming Connection and other service on your home computer. This is not a tutorial, and will not be going into details of the services and router configuaration, I just want to point out couple of points you need to pay attention to. 1. Port Forwarding. Vadafone Router has its own name for Port Forwarding, it's called Port Mapping under Port Management category.The picture below shows that I set up web server on my desktop, I map my local address on port 80; and I set up PPTP incoming connection by mapping local address on port 1723. Port Forwarding 2. Exposed Host. If you have set up Port Mapping, you still can't get what you want, then you have to put your device outside the Firewall, i.e. bypass Vodafone Connects (means Router) firewall, in a Demilitarised Zone (DMZ), using it's Exposted Host Function. Static NAT (Network Address Translation) means the Router will translate publi
