Click Bombing Google Adsense Invalid Clicks

Updated on February 14, 2013

What Is Click Bombing and How To Protect your Account

Click bombing is when someone manually or with some automated system clicks on your Google adsense ads hundred’s, thousand’s times more clicks than the actual impressions, that is for sure your ads were click bombed.

Click bombing, it can happen to anyone’s Google adsense ads. You wake up one morning and checked your Google Adsense account and find out it has is closed due to suspicious activity.

It is when someone targets your site and repeatedly clicks on your ads hundreds of time, in hopes of having Google close your account. Everything is so much easier on the Internet where you do not face these people in real life.

The internet gives people so much opportunity to hurt each other without feeling bad. There is no personal connection. These people click bomb to destroy their opponents with no remorse.

If you notice one day that you are receiving unusually high number of clicks and suspect that it is click bombing report it to Google. If you do not do this, your account may be closed.

Google Adsense has an “Invalid Clicks Contact Form” You should immediately fill out the form to report any unusual account activities. Google will contact you if the Google finds any suspicious activity.

May be they will not reply but they will watch your account for suspicious clicks and deduct money from fake clicks.

Google has ways of checking whether there is a connection between the bomber and yourself. As long as it does not happen too often, there should not be room for suspicion.

You do not have to check your account every day but it always helps. Click bombing is another way people can hurt you. These people aim to destroy you, your site, and your hard work.

Protect yourself do not let this happen to your Google adsense account; just watch your Google adsense account.
