How Much Was Your Click Fraud Suit Compensation?

Discussion in 'Google AdWords' started by T0PS3O, Nov 1, 2006.

    Reports are coming in of people receiving their fraud settlement compensation (their pie of the $60m Google paid back).
    SEMrush
    Did you get your piece of the pie?

    This guy got 12p on £500 spent. That's 0.024% refund. So if you spent 25 grand, you'd have gotten $6 back, wuoohoo!

    That's just over one percent. Not bad! I wonder how they calculated it then.

    I hope you didn't expect more after the lawyers got their cut, I mean $600.00 can only go so far.;)

    With this type of lawsuits, only the lawyers make good.

    Sounds like filling out the papers has been a waste of time. At those pay-outs it probably cost them more in bandwidth to send the notification emails.

    we got 2400+$ (in indian rupees) as refund :D (This was compensation for the high clicks happened on feb 2006) and it was adjusted with the past months due and on october we had a huge click variations again :(, we dint file any case though, we just notified them of invalid clicks and they said they will verify it and send the credit

    About £0.12, which is nothing really compared to our spend. The lawyers got about $10m from what I hear :rolleyes:
