Question About Invalid Clicks

Discussion in 'AdSense' started by linkforu, Aug 28, 2009.

    Hi need some help about invalid clicks
    SEMrush
    my question is-

    1)If My mouse Cursor is coming over an ad and i am not clicking on my Ads then will it will still count as a click for Adsense ?

    {I Am using Statcounter Tool to track my website some times i see that when mouse came over an ad then statcounter show it a exit link activity but Actually i am not clicking on my ads ...Adsense never tracked these Exit link activities }

    so my actual question is if adsense is not tracking these Activities then do i need to worry because actually i did make any self click?

    your dont need to worry about that. Adsese will not take any action on what they track. You should use Google Analytic Tool or some other software to track your ads and traffic.

    i could not understand Adsense will not take any action on what they track. or it is Adsense will not take any action on what they did not track.

    Simply moving the cursor over the ad will not amount to clicking and hence it is not counted as a click (or invalid click!). Even if you click your own ad accidentally (but remember, not repeatedly!!:p) once, don't bother; Google will pardon you and will not take the click into account.

"what does it mean that if i clicked on my own ads google will not track my click and if yes then how would they come to know that a click happened

    Adsense will definitely not count that as a click.. looks like statcounter is only taking it as click.. so don't worry ;)

    Your question is about invalid clicks, hovering your mouse over a link does not count as a click. No problems here.

    That's not a problem. You can do it but be careful, dont "accidentally" click for many times

    Well that means by mistake if you click on your own ads, they will ignore it, as it highly possible that someone click on own ads doing some work with blog! Second thing, they track your IP and Cookies to know about this!

    Look, it's this simple - if you don't click, there is no problem.
