    how invalid clicks happens? Maybe its frustrating to here for many months or years and be posting some hub only to find out some invalid clicks and accounts be closed.

    Don't click on your own ads, and don't ask anybody to do this. Pretty much takes care of the problem. smile

    Do you share IP address with someone else?  Sometimes having two computers in the same house can generate invalid click.
    You are not supposed to click on your own ad, but another user in the same house click on your ad.  Since the IP address is the same, Google will think that you click on the ad.
    Sometimes a reader will click on the ad a few times, and this will make Google suspicious.  So the best way is to monitor closely, when you see a sudden spike in clicks, make a report.
    Please make an appeal to Google if you have not clicked on your own ad, and did not ask your friends to click on the ad.

      I think they have to review this rule. Since anybody could just click your ads many times by someone and then consider it as invalid click without your knowledge.
