    How do you know it is the same person? it could be that you are getting more clicks because more people are browsing your hubs today....jimmy

    If it's definately happening on your hubs, then hubpages might be able to give you some info to take to google. Check your account and see where your traffic sources are coming from, number of pages views etc.

    If there's something out of the ordinary go to http://hubpages.com/email/help/ and ask for some help.

    I kind of think you are overreacting for 2 bucks a day?

      I don't care about the reason since I would never know what I know is that Google bans easily if you don't notify them.

        It may not be on Hubpages but on the new blog I set up.

      Thanks Mark. Finally the link to report click frauds is here:

      If you suspect that invalid clicks may have resulted from a visitor to your site, we suggest that you review your site's logs for any suspicious activity and notify us with your findings . This information can help us in resolving any issues, although as outlined in our Terms and Conditions, Google will use its sole discretion when determining instances of invalid clicks.

    Oh, I assumed it was hubpages as you were asking for help here.

    My mistake.

    If you set up URL channels you'll be able to tell where the clicks are coming from.

      Thanks, I will do it later, for now I have removed my adsense account from all sites that were publicly known.

      I'm now looking for some advice to prevent multiple suspicious clicks.

      I think talking about how much you earn on some forums can create jealousy. Also I have refused to join some pyramidal schemes I think some guys who tried to use psychological coercision to force you join didn't like me for that also smile

    I'm still completely mystified by this idea that your sites shouldn't be "publicly known".  If no one knows your site exists, then clearly it's not going to make a cent, is it?  So what's the point of its existence? 

    Or do you mean the site can be known, but you don't want anyone to know you're the person behind it? 

    I had a look at that site you mentioned and it only confused me even more.  Can anyone else explain it to me?

    MakeMoney - I think you are over reacting.  Send google an email thru the correct page - report the suspicious activity and more than likely nothing will happen.  I had a friend "helpfully" do some clicking for me - I knew which site it was because of the time and location of the visitors - which I could see from Analytics - I passed all that info on to google - they say that you won;t here back from them unless they want to persue it - so far no response - no reversal of the earnings.  I think so long as you declare the problem first is obvious its not you trying to defraud -you are the victim instead   
    Your earnings as reported on your hub are nice record but hardly the stuff to make people jealous! Loose the paranoia you're only hurt yourself in the end.  And start using analytics properly its a brilliant tool and unless you can measure your traffic how do you know if you are doing anything right?

    There are lots of people selling "adsense protection systems" LOL big_smile

    Guess who is saying things like "Google has been known to shutdown accounts by just a few accidental clicks."

    If you are upfront with google and follow their guidelines, both for placement and reporting suspicious activity you should be fine. And as for keeping your sites a secret in case someone clicks on your ads - well...... smile

    If you have access to your web logs, then they will show the same person (ie., IP address) revisiting your sites (unless, as everyone suggests, you have a genuine increase in traffic). Another option is to plant Google analytics on your sites:

    https://www.google.com/analytics/home/provision

    I also found it a very useful tool to check how people navigated through my sites.

    Good luck!
