Why the massive increase in views for my ad?

    Hi,
    My ad has historically gotten about 1700 views a day and costs a couple dollars. The past three days it's gotten and cost ten times that with no increase in clicks. Can you please provide some explanation for the sudden massive increase with no increase in clickthroughs?

    I went digging, and there definitely appears to be a rogue spider running around running up impressions on ads. The spider has been blocked on our end, and credits have been given for everything it did. In your case, a credit of $81.67577 was given (I didn't remove the impression logs, so you still still see the inflated costs and impressions for those days, but the credit was given to your account as a whole).
