I'm very confused. I'm trying to get my site (let's just say www.example.com) approved for Google AdSense. I submitted the application using "www.example.com" and I got a reply from AdSense saying my application was rejected because "dev.example.com" was unavailable.
"dev.example.com" is my local virtual host that is set up in Apache and my Windows
hosts file. It is NOT a public URL and will not work anywhere except my computer. My site uses relative paths, so "dev.example.com" is not in the source code anywhere.
My two questions are HOW is AdSense getting my local virtual host URL, and WHY is it using that URL for approval instead of the URL I submitted in my application?
