Protect yourself from a Click Bomb

So you still have AdSense running on your site because you just joined, got your account resurrected, or reapplied.  This is an enviable and profitable position.  Let’s talk about how to keep it that way.Let’s assume that you’re not foolish enough to hop around internet café or rebooting your ADSL/Cable gateway to click the ads on your site.  The other common cause to ban your AdSense account is a “click bomb”. “Click Bomber” or someone that sabotages websites by clicking on the ads repeatedly until the publisher is banned.

Inevitably, we all have foes in our walk of life, people we know or we don’t. Some of them may turn into a click bomber. If you use Wordpress, one way to protect yourself is to install a plug-in called “Who Sees Ads ?”

You can configure it to hide ads from regular visitors (a friend or a foe).  Regular visitors don’t click on ads anyway. A click bomber has to reload a page many times or visit many pages to do a good 30~40 clicks to get you banned.  “Who Sees Ads ?” can give you the protection to the extent that the click bomber doesn’t actively change IP address and clean cookie store.

There is no real protection. It’s an arms race an ad-inflicter cannot win.

I have had so many websites click bombed and even lost a few Adsense account that I had enough. Instead of giving up my $5K/mo. passive income with a new monetization program I purchased to protect my websites from invalid click fraud and click bombing. I haven’t lost an Adsense account in a year.
