Invalid traffic -Adsense for content

    Hello folks

    I will open one thread which is for all adsense users.
    We know that Invalid traffic is when you click on your ads,when bot click on ads and with some automated method too. Now my question is this: Did invalid traffic is when traffic is not by organic search?

    There is no such thing as "invalid traffic" in connection with adssense. They call it "invalid activity", and that is not all what you said it is.

    Well, @Agent000 posted on links which tell all the answer of your question.

    Here are some

    Invalid activity includes, but is not limited to:

    • Clicks or impressions generated by publishers clicking their own live ads
    • Repeated ad clicks or impressions generated by one or more users
    • Publishers encouraging clicks on their ads (examples may include: any language encouraging users to click on ads, ad implementations that may cause a high volume of accidental clicks, etc.)
    • Automated clicking tools or traffic sources, robots, or other deceptive software.
    As I knew if a person which come from organic search & clicked two time on a same ads, its get invalid or a person which directly visited on a site & in a second clicked on ads, its get invalid.

    Wait. Furquan you said that visitor who come from direct traffic? Example he type on browser or on google games dot com, and then he click on ad is invalid click?

    Hey direct traffic is not invalid traffic at all.

    There is something which Google AdSense might check. Let me explain I have visited on a site & after 1 or 2 second I clicked on one ads which is placed above the fold. As a advertiser would you pay $ for that click

    I don't know about that. I just said that direct traffic and clicking on ad is not invalid traffic.
