Google AdSense Click Fraud ~ How to avoid it?

Oh no… There was a crazy guy wanted to sabotage me. He clicked a lot of AdSense ads. I think he is using bot to do so. Because it is really a lot. More than 30,000 clicks. I don’t think a human can do it.


How to avoid Google AdSense click fraud? I also don’t know. But I took below steps to avoid it.

  • Remove the ad code.
  • Set my own domains on Allowed Sites only.

Why remove the ad code? That guy clicked on Large Rectangle – top channel ad on root level. Based on Google Analytics, that ad only brings less than USD 3 in 1 month. Removed it is a good decision. No use to put it there as it wastes space.

Set own domains on Allowed Sites also will help to reduce your Google AdSense code being used by others to do evil thing ~ click fraud sabotage. All the other domains that using your ad code will be ignore by Google. Therefore, all the worry will be gone.
