    I would like what can happen if any of my visitors mass click on the ads , as you all know there are some people who are a bit mad and also some people who like getting people banned from Adsense , so what can happen in this case ?

    Google is good at recognizing fraudulent clicks.

    If you make good earnings, it's best to be one the the many webmasters that are addicted to viewing stats.

    If you don't have access, or miss it before the 'ban them' computer finds out...looks like you're toast.

    I believe Google use some kind of timing to check how long your potential customer is on your site. So if they just click and move on you should be OK. Does anyone know if this is true and how long the timing is ?

    What if somebody right clicks on your ads and then clicks open in new browser? Then they are still in the site, which means that the computer would pick that up as fraudulent. Google is so complex :S

    This happened to me and they automatically detected it, just make sure to email them right after you notice.

    Google filters should start working as soon as they detect a spike in clicks from the same address. It would be bad if they ban people for this, because it leaves open the possibility of someone taking advantage.

    I don't know this for a fact, but I think Google has a sort of "grace period" where, after your site has generated fraudulent clicks, they allow you the opportunity to email them and tell them that you suspect this having happened. Again, I don't know this for sure, but from all the anecdotal stuff I've heard/read, Google never bans you the day after the fraud clicks, but rather anywhere from a week to the final day of the month. So, if that's the case (and again, I'm going by anecdotal evidence here, which is really not actual evidence) you will have the opportunity to discover that something is amiss and inform them.

    Unless, of course, you go months without checking your stats...

    Um, yeah. It's obviously the same thing as clicking on the link, you're just clicking on it and opening in a new window. Same thing. You committed click fraud, girl. Better remember how often you did this so you can apologize before they ban you.

    Really? Oh geez, I signed up with adsense years ago and I thought that was how you were supposed to check advertisers without actually clicking on the ads. I guess they have changed things since then. :eek:

    I only did it maybe 10 times?, should I contact them to explain?

    Nothing happens at all, but you need to mail this to google asap, just to be secure on your part, and also keep your server logs ready. :)

    The bottom line is that Google knows what they are doing. If someone is mass clicking your ads, they know. If you are clicking on your own ads, they know. You don't need to email them and beg their forgiveness if you accidentally click on one of your own ad's. I did it when I 1st signed up to test the ads (I wasn't trying to make money, I was really just seeing how it worked) and I accidentally did it the other day when my nouse slipped. I didn't get paid for those clicks (obviously), I didn't get kicked out of adsense and I didn't waste there time with a "I'm so sorry I accidentally clicked my ad!" email.

    Just my opinion, or course, but do you think Google wants to sift through (hundreds of?) thousands of emails a day about something they already know about?

    ;)
