    I think you will be okay as long as you have reported it.
    I got clickbombed the other day it seemed but google picked it up right away.

    That happened to me once and I recorded the ip addresses that clicked and sent them to google. I told google that there was activity on my account that seemed out of it's normal character, gave them the ip addresses that were on my site and there was no problem with google.

    It's very easy to ban someone:
    Clickbomb the account and send an email to G asking if it's OK that the site owner asked you to click on his/her ads...Works everytime...

    just reporting the unusual activity usually solves the problem. let them know you are not doing this deliberately. thats it :)

    Google has become lot more wiser over the years and it just throws frequent and repeated clicks from a single source..straight directly in the trash!

    It is good that OP has even reported the case to google. I do not think he needs to worry over this matter...any more!

    Regards,

    I believe even if you wouldn't have reported it, you would have been fine.
    Google knows that people clickbomb to hurt publishers, and I'm positive they detect it now.

    If you are using word press then you can Ban the IP addresses of members that you suspect, although the obvious flaw is that you would need to know who they were.

    Hope you wont have any issues with google after you reported it to Adsense team.
    Can somebody explain how actually you can locate the IP of the click-bomber? Of course, if the IP is repeated 100 times out of 300 impression it will be easy, but what if it is on the background of several thousand impressions? Anyone ideas? Not that I've been click-bombed, but just curious about this...

    I think you have done the best that you can do. And that is reporting it to Google Adsense. and as most of people here at DP said google has become smarter and must have already know the click bomb that is happening.

    Thanks

    google can detect this click fraud automatically and flag it as a click fraud in your account. so there is no reason to be worry about..

    You complained of being clicked bombed and mentioned the url in your sig, easy for anyone who wants to mess with you to know which site to do it on.
