11 Ways AdSense Can Detect Invalid Clicks

Discussion in 'AdSense' started by th3criminal, Nov 24, 2010.

  1. #1
    1. Click Through Rate (CTR)

    Normally, Click thru Rate should not excees 10%. Otherwise, Google will flag your account. For your information, normal CTR should ranges from 0.5% - 10%.

    2. IP Address

    It is the easist and must be recognized by everyone. If those clicks on your ads are originated from the same IP Address as the one used for accessing your AdSense account, your account is flagged.


    3. Physical Location

    Google has good tracing software and technology.They can trace traffics origin down to the small town. So, using different computers with different IP address does not secure anything. So, don't try to click your ads in various internet cafes. That will kill you.

    4. Click Pattern 3

    And why is it that people accessing these sites direct (type-in URL or from bookmark) tend to be very active ad-clickers compared with those referred from search engine or other sites?

    5. Click Pattern 1

    It is also suspicious when people click on their clicks and then run away immediately (hit-and-run). But normally, people will surf for a while inside your pages and then click on the ads they want.

    6. Advertisers conversion rate
    SEMrush
    Ad click is one thing. But does it bring value to the advertisers? If none of the clicks on your site translate to conversion to the advertiser, you are in trouble. First the Smart-Pricing hits, then your AdSense account disabled.



    7. Cookies

    Most home users do not use static IP Address for Internet connection. In most cases just disconnect and reconnect will give you a new IP Address. But don't forget, Google has set cookies on your computer. They can trace these cookies and see whether they originate from the same computer.


    8. Other Google Services

    Apart from Google Adsense, Google also provide a series of services to us. Don't just think that it is safe if you do not log in your adsense account and click on your ads. What other Google services do they provide to us? Here are some: Gmail (most poeple are using it), Google Earth, Google Calendar, Google Search, Google Toolbar, Google Talk, Google Sitemap, Google Desktop, Blogger, or even Youtube (coz Google has just recently acquired it).

    9. Click Pattern 2

    why this computer / IP address / person is so trigger-click-happy on this particular website but never click on the ads on other sites?




    10. Webpage design

    How about the "Please click a link below" or "donate us by clicking the ads"? These kinds of encouragement is not in line with Google's TOS. Google can use their winning search engine, or even human eyes to check your sites from time to time.


    11. Search Engine Ranking

    Your website is not indexed on any search engine, not linked by any prominent website, but get consistently high traffic? How come people can access your website and click your ads? That will make Google to smell a rat.

    thats not true. i had 35%+ CTR for one of my site for over a year and never had any issue with high CTR. if the clicks are legit, then higher CTR is not an issue

    adsense and google search are different things totally. adsense dont have any clue how well a site ranks in search engine. yuo may not be counting on serp ranking for traffic as there are many other ways to promote a site.

    I think the OP said you don't just get banned if you get a high ctr. He said your account get's flagged and latter checked by a human for click fraud. My personal view is that s higher click through rate also means that the content on the site isn't good enough so people just want to get away from it somehow.

    11 is a nonsense.

    You can get lots of traffic in many other ways.

    Honestly, is it worth cheating and scamming others to make a quick buck? Yes there are ways around their detection, but should you really use them?

    I agree with most of the points. However, CTR can be over 100% without being suspicious.

    Can happen if you get 100 daily visitors and 150 daily clicks, for example. Then the CTR = click through rate will be over 100% since there's more than one click for every visitor.

    That's a dead giveaway for either a cheating webmaster (when you ask your friends to visit and click "at least one ad") or a clickbomb (when your competitor does that on purpose to hurt you). But Google has some pretty good ways for figuring out clickbombs from cheaters.

    Don't agree with point 1:
    if your page is visited 5 time and you got 4 clicks, it should be ok.
    but if page is visited 50 time and you got 40 clicks then it is suspicious!

    some people here did not understand point 11 it is more important that if website is not indexed by any famous search engine and getting high traffic from other place, it is suspicious.

    Well you are preaching to the choir. Why would you be concerned with these things? Just create websites with good content, and you dont have to worry about this.

    Not sure why you would post this, this is absolutely incorrect. Care to elaborate on this one?
