I just to 1 Adsense click for $37.54. I have gotten the occasional 10 or $12 once or twice a year; but these feels like, someone is trying to hurt me. What advertiser would pay that much for 1 click? The article only has twelve views and one click. Can someone please talk me down!
That's not click bombing. Click bombing is when someone's "continuously" clicking on your ads. Looks like you only got 1 click and that one click gave you $37.54. If it's click bombing you might've had like 188 clicks and 5 page views, doesn't matter how much a click gives u.
that's awesome...Why would anyone want to hurt you ?..I certainly hope they would not..
My website, is about a free program for low income families and individuals. I also have a youtube video, with the site link on it. Sometimes I get very ugly comments about poor people and people receiving government assistance. These are the type of people might want to hurt the site.
Some keywords have a very high competition and if someone is desperate to come up on top of the Google Search results, maybe even the first one on the first page, they may pay a ridiculous amount of money per click. I don't think you have anything to worry about that the CPC is so high. Google always says that earnings may change once they are finalized so maybe this number will be different. Still, i wouldn't worry about it. If you had endless clicks from same IP address and the user didn't stay on the page the ads took them too for even a few seconds then I'd worry.
Oh, that is comforting to know. I was concerned. I guess if is was only 1 click, that would not constitute click bombing. How do you track the ip addresses that come to you site? Thanks lovebuglena
I think you are just lucky! If you were being click bombed then you would see more than just 1 click.
The most expensive CPC words are insurace at around $54 Per click, Loans at $44 and mortgage at $47
But there's a risk there. If Adsense detected false clicks, they might ban your Adsense account.
If they have detected and ip adress that consistently clicks Adsense ads, Adsense will investigate that. Just saying.
If you are really concerned (although it doesn't sound like 1 high paying click is too much to be concerned about) then go to your Adsense reports page and report that you suspect 'unusual activity' via their contact link ( under help at the top right of page if I recall correctly). I believe it is the following link to make a report: https://www.google.com/support/adsense/ … t&rd=2
Once you do this you cover yourself, and if anything dodgy is detected by Google Adsense they won't blame you because you already raised a concern over it. If all is well you will get paid as per normal.
I still reckon you are better off on the HP Ad program for decent earnings though (unless you already are and just happened to get this click on the one Adsense paid ad block left on your hub).
mistyhorizon2003, you are right, it sounds like I just got lucky. I am aware of that link you posted. I will use is if I am ever 'really' clicked bombed. I done use the HP Ad program, I only use Google, but always make payout.
Have you ever tried the HP Ad program? The reason I ask is that most people do much better on it because it is paid on views (impressions) rather than clicks. I make payout on the HP Ad program at least 6 times over each month, whereas on Adsense I very much doubt I would do more than half of that. It is well worth periodically swapping between the two for a month just to see if one is performing better for you than the other.
If you had not clicked it yourself then why are you worried? You got paid a huge bill for a click and it is not your fault.
Lucky you, well done for getting it- that's brilliant! And gives me some hope for the future!!
By the way, what's your article about to get such high dollar click?
Don't forget that the ads are first chosen based on the reader's search history, not the topic of the page. So even if you were writing about something with a low CPC topic like vegetables, if the viewer has been recently looking into choosing an online spread-betting company, then they might see adverts based on spread-betting, forex, gold trading etc on your page. And then if they click on one of those ads, you are going to get that massive payout.
So don't panic and just keeping hoping your hub attracts more people who are searching for high competition terms!
Two or more advertisers might have showed up on your page with their ads set to bid instead of fixed. Their problem, not yours. Enjoy the gift and bask in the glory.
I agree that you don't need to worry. Let us see if Adsense will give you some notice or something.
Sounds like a decent little pay grab and nothing shady! Kudos and keep on hubbing..

Can it go against Google rules if they have deliberately done this thinking they are helping you? I am worried because I just had a comment posted saying "thumbs up and adsense."
