Is it usual for Adsense to deem some clicks invalid?

    I received a few days ago a mail of google telling me I had some invalid clicks. It was my first mail of the sort.

    Has any of you guys passed through similar situations? Is this some kind of "warning" mail, or are they already gonna remove some of the presumed misclicks when I reach the next payment threshold?

    Also, is it usual for this to happen?

    Thanks for the antecipated feedback smile

      The odd invalid click or two tends to be removed from the system automatically, and the amount removed from your balance.

      If this is a genuine e-mail from Google then it sounds like you're pretty lucky and have been given some kind of warning, because (and this is only what I've read on the Adsense forums etc) the first email most people get regarding invalid clicks, is the one in which they tell you your Adsense account has been closed.

    It was indeed just a warning mail. Maybe it's the first time that misclicks occur.

    Take a reeeel close look at the email and make sure it's not spam. Are they asking for private information or directing you to a web site to do something?

    Be extremely careful.

    Yes, unfortunately Google have been known to cut people off very quickly with very little right of appeal.  I always stick to the rules very closely.  Once you get more established you don't have to worry so much.  They generally side with the advertisers (who pay the money!) in the event of a complaint so it is always prudent to avoid annoying anyone.

    We've never received an email from Google, except on our AdWords account telling us our prepaid cash is running low.
    So, if we got anything else that appeared to be from Google, we would be extremely suspicious.
    A few months ago we got a letter in the mail (the traditional kind of mail) about our domaine registration.   It looked genuine, but research showed it to be a scam!
    There are  a lot of villans out there, so be careful.

    Well it looked a legit mail from google. It was written in portuguese, my native language and the one my adsense account is written. It did have 2 links atached but it was to 2 help pages of adsense where it explained basicaly the rules of clicks and miscklics.

    It never asked for any personal info, so I really presume it was a legit mail.

    Strange that no one else received it, though!

    I didn't received no mail saying they were closing my adsense account.

    Anyway,even if they did I would not stop hubbing. It's fun writing the articles.
