      That's worrying. Have you checked analytics? You do know that anyone can take your code off a page and stick it somewhere else and click bomb it?

      There's a line about that here - http://www.webmastercrunch.com/protect- … id-clicks/

      They say all you can do is go into Google Adsense and click on 'allowed sites'.

    Its only happened today though, I woke up and saw it first thing at 9.30 am, but its evened out now though.

    I just found the page where I had 15 clicks in Analytics, its not a usual earner from my experience either? what should I do now?

      It would do no harm to report it to google anyway, using that first form.
      If they look at it and decide they are invalid, they will remove the value and not pay you.

      Only they can see where the clicks came from, and if it turns out to be from several sources, they will likely leave them and you will hear no more.

      Better safe than sorry.

    It asks if I can see any referrers or ip addresses, but I don't know how to see that so I left it blank but I did send it off.
