    That was a mistake a HUGE Mistake, not a downside of affiliate marketing.

    Well at least you'll have the maximum care from now on when setting up your campaigns. :p

    surely not all your clicks would have been at $45, Google doesn't charge to at your maximum all the time.

    Ouch, that's a big mistake, but like others have said, you are obviously successful because you can afford such a large daily budget.

    Care to share any of your strategies?

    Seriously?? Wow... :eek:

    So you got a high conversion rate because of the mistake but then get the money back too?

    Wow!

    I wonder if the Adsenser getting the clicks lost THEIR payment! :p

    I think we've got to assume if the guy's making $170,000 a month google want to keep a customer like that happy not to mention he's probably got a good track record which shows he's not just a chancer.
