Is Someone Trying To Sabotage Your Blog (or Website)?

Have you ever signed in to your adsense account to check your stats and noticed that there was an unusually high number of clicks on your ads? You know that you didn't do it and you're wondering what is going on.

It could be that someone is trying to sabotage your your adsense account!

What do you do if this happens to you? Well the very first thing that you should do is notify adsense! You can go to their site and find out more about what you should do if you notice questionalbe click activity to your site(s). You can also contact adsense via email if you scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the "contact us" link.

Now the question, of course, is why would anyone want to do something like this? There are many answers. Someone may just be vindictive and they may want to try and sabotage your account by placing so many clicks that your adsense account might become disabled or even worse yet cancelled. They themselves could have probably been disabled by adsense and they are looking for ways to get back at other people. They could also be a competitor trying to get your adsense account disabled as well.

Adsense's policy on invalid clicks is that they will investigate such matters but they have the final say-so as to whether or not they will continue or disable your account. I have seem many people post about how they felt that they were dealt with wrongly as far as invalid clicks were concerned but it is hard to judge unless one knows all the facts.

So if you suspect invalid and/or questionable click activity on your adsense ads notify adsense as soon as you are aware of the problem.

This has happened to my and my blogs and I have taken note of the person who was at my site at the time and I have (and will continue to) forward this information to adsense each and every time that it happens!

And I am not the only one that this has happened to. Click here to read what another clickbombing victim has said about their adsense account being terminated. But he did manage to get his adsense account re-instated.
