    You probably had some invalid clicks. I would call Yahoo and ask them about it.

    Yup, definitely call them. I think they are a bunch of great folks who promptly replied my mails and resolve the problems I had with my account.

    Back to the topic, I think over 500 in invalid clicks are a bit too much....hmmm..:confused:

    Have you checked your scripts to see how many unique IPs the clicks were coming from? Maybe a ton were coming from a single domain or competitor.

    This seems to be more and more common...we have a few clients who have been complaining about this - I would like to learn more about invalid clicks.
