    My adsense account white list has got some Proxy sites displaying my adsense id.

    What is the benefit for people using proxy sites. Invalid clicks? Do they think that proxy sites really hide their IP's. Then i am sure Hubbers around here who are having active adsense accounts are behind this, because they fear that their Ip address will be found out by google and depends on proxies. Why these fools dont realize that these proxy sites are only allowing other sites to be displayed through their website and it does not really hide their ips.

    All clicks made from Proxy or auto surfers are not recorded by Google if we use White list. So if there is any one who is not using allowed sites option please use it as there are many hubbers out hunting for other people.


    Please remove any of your sites from allowed sites option if it is showing more revenue than normal, like high ctr or earnings. I usually remove even from allowed sites option so that any kind of invalid clicks wont be recorded. … clear.html

    There is also a very big problem arising in case of Referrals who sign up under us. Please keep watch on all your referrals hubs and make sure that they have their own adsense account linked to affiliate settings.I found that some referrals who did not have any adsense account with them were signing up under me and publishing hubs that had only one video or even nothing in it.  If they use copyrighted content or photos it will harm each one of us who is the referrer as our adsense id will be displayed. So always check all your referrals in URL Trackers and advise them if you find any mistake or Flag them if they are inappropriate.

    Invalid click activity was the main problem till last month for me. But what i am now concerned more is the Referrals.

    It should be made mandatory that a referral who does not have an adsense id should display id of hub pages in his hubs till he adds his own id. And only after he adds his own id in affiliate settings , the adsense id of the referrers should be displayed.

    How is google not aware of the case of proxies? Or is it that they are investigating?

      Some proxies are blaclisted already by google and so that they wont display google ads. But there are still some sites that are being used by people to surf and that is why we are getting the list of them in our disallowed sites. Only if Hubpages can prevent redirection services, proxies and auto surfers to prevent viewing this site. This can be done by blocking these sites just like they block ips.

    I would never use traffic exchanges for Hubpages it will get you banned from google and lower the quality of your traffic.  High quality traffic is more important than how much traffic you get.

      I was not discussing about any traffic exchanges or its benefits. Please make sure you have read the first post completely.

      I am saying about people who use proxies for making invalid clicks.

        Yes, it's not about traffic exchange.

    Wow, that was like a foreign language right there.  Sometimes I get these little glimpses of the vast Internet world that exists beyond my tiny little postage stamp lawn of understanding and I cringe at my ignorance.

      We have to learn new things everyday and adjust to problems as the vast internet continues to expand each moment.

      Foreign language ?

      FOFL, I understand you man, sadly this internet thing is changing at such a rate that a lot of people don't find out about this 'new' stuff till its already 'old'! 

      One day I'll fully understand it all, but of course by then they'll be so much more to learn!
