    if ure getting click bombed then don't worry about adsense. They have their own internal fraud click detection and shaving methods.

    More likely they will get in touch via adsense messages (you will get email notification). It's best to ignore it. I have seen that if you contact them it backfires.

    Also it might help to give Cloudflare.com a shot. They are able to prevent botnets from attacking yoursite to a great extent.

    well they may not do so at all. As I said they will automatically correct your earnings when they detect fraud clicks.

    holy crap same here dude
    some miserable POS from Germany bombed me last night. Took me 2 hours to figure out his IP.
    I blocked him using CPanel.
    Here is his IP: 176.9.79.83
    Probably some loser punk wanting to ruin people's incomes.
    Block him people, just to be safe

    Me too click boombed from Germany 10 days ago. Since it was germany I was able to find the IP easily and ban him.
    46.4.112.87
    Interestingly the IP is of website ClickLeaks.com.

    You should definitely report unusual activity to google. There is an contact form for that at adsense help.

    Cloudflare no use. Now I am begin click boombed from US. I can't find which IP is doing it. May google understand US all.

    I was following a good thread about 2 years ago where the thread starter's goal was $xx,xxx a month from adsense.
    So bad, someone on that thread bomb his ads and make him banned. That was a good thread and the last post reported he earn half of his goal..
    So people bombing an adsense account to make the owner banned, but I never heard about adsense internal fraud detecting to protect us from this case.

    Something here is, why on this thread all clicked from germany ?
    Same IP or same person ?

    So it looks like most of us are click bombed from Germany in last 2 days. Is all coming from same IP or different?

    I am continuously begin click boomed for last 1 week from US. Today I identify IP 64.237.49.107 as click bomber. Yesterday I had identify 5.104.241.17x range and banned. But no use.

    The only way to find them is that they change User agent very fast. From windows to Mac to Linux. From desktop to mobile to tablet. Gogle adsense also confirms click from Desktop, mobile, tablet.

    My website is for India. Also I run adsense on 3 websites including one belong to my friend. 3 are Independent but the click bomber is bombing all. I don't know how he finds my websites.

    I have been using Apache Log Viewer to analyze my Cpanel logs. Spending 2-3 hours a day to find them. I even tried replacing ads with dummy image with link to log ip of clicker. But didn't got the click bomber. I have tried removing ads for days. But as soon as I put it, it gets bombed. I am fed up these rascals.

    It's not just you who is being bombed by this guy/bot or whatever it is, so you should not really worry that much.. and for me, I am not being bombed first time.. guys from my college have been F***ing my ads for more than a year now, and at that time I was really scared if Google will ban me, but that never happened.. they simple deduct the money of invalid clicks..

    I have pulled down my ads till I find those IPs. Spending hours on it everyday. Should I put the ads back and ignore the bombers?

    I would definitely do that and never care about bombers, also you should not waste your time tracking down these kinds of idiots and use your time to be productive..
    and honestly I am no expert to advise you, so you should do whatever you have to do..

    Not really sure, must be some psychopath penalized by google in serps or maybe had his own adsense account banned, so he might be going after Google and their advertisers.. lol, nothing serious, just my thoughts while I'm drunk..

    BOOOOOOOM!

    Did you just get bombed?....LMAO!

    I would suggest not to worry about getting banned..

    I do recommend though, tracking the IP and banning that IP in your cPanel so that it doesn't happen anymore, just to be sure.

    Holla!

    I use a statcounter.com to track exit link activity and I always notify google of it, if they ever come at you at least you can show them that you are doing something to protect and prevent against invalid clicks.
