What Is AdSense Fraud Click Or Invalid Click Activity?
When a person or a group of people click on your AdSense ads from the same Ip Address or a group of IPs, this suspicious activity is known as ‘Invalid click activity.’
Google Adsense blocks publishers’ ad accounts to protect advertisers from these fraudulent clicks.
And if it happens from time to time, AdSense can suspend your account permanently.
Of course, you don’t want to let this happen.
Don’t worry; here, I’m introducing some tactics that can help you protect your account from these activities. Before moving further, here are a few reasons why you encounter Invalid click activity on Ads.
- A massive number of ads on a single web page.
- You’ve asked your friends & relatives to click on ads.
- Participating in Facebook groups to get Adsense ad clicks.
- Clicking on your ads using VPN
Some Techniques To protect Your Adsense Account From Fraud Clicks Activity
- By using WordPress plugins (If you are on a WordPress platform).
- Adsense ads density per page.
- Google analytics.
- Google Adsense Invalid click activity contact Form.
The first three techniques are the precautions, and the last one is when your account got banned.
Let’s get into detail…
1. Use WordPress Plugins
If your blog is on WordPress, you can use a plugin to protect your Adsense account.
It is one of the best plugins to protect your Adsense account from fraud click activities. It applies to Google Adsense and other PPC (pay per click) advertising networks.
With this, you can protect or prevent your account from malicious clicks performed by bots or a group of people.
It also helps you avoid clicks from your friends who want to help you or ruin your account.
It continuously calculates Adsense ad clicks and equates this click value with your set limit. If the number of clicks exceeds the limit (set Number), it hides your ads from your web source.
There are some other features of the Click-Fraud Monitoring plugin
- Sometimes you also click your Adsense ads again and again to earn revenue. So to avoid it, you can block your IP address through this plugin.
- It is compatible with all themes.
- It is effortless to use and install on WordPress.
#2. Advanced Ads
Do you use AdSense or other Display advertising networks to monetize your blog? if so, I recommend you use advanced Ads to optimize your ads and boost your ad income.
I Have been using Advanced Ads for 30 months now and all I can say is that it’s incredible. Go check it out!
2. Adsense ad Density Per Page
It is another way to protect your AdSense account from these activities. When you put a large number of ad units on your single blog post, you are indirectly increasing the chances of ad clicks.
It is a dangerous practice. Your haters or competitors can quickly make your account ruin. More ad insertion can increase site loading time, which is unsuitable for your site health. So, I recommend you not put more than 3- 7 ads per blog post.
3. Google Analytics
It is one of the best tools to monitor all the activities on your site.
A great console to keep an eye on all types of clicks activities on your blog. One can easily interpret and detect the exact location of any visitor.
So, if you find any suspicious activity on your analytics account, you can remove your ad code from your website.
4. Google Adsense Invalid Click activity Contact Form
Adsense helps you reactivate your dumb account. You can use the ‘Invalid Click Activity Form‘ to recover your blocked account. You have to check your AdSense account every day and note down the number of clicks.
You can also analyze your CTR. If you find any sudden Increment in your ad clicks or CTR, instantly erase your code from your blog and complain to the AdSense team through this Invalid Click Activity appeal form.
Note: Google AdSense has enabled ads serving for individual pages instead of suspending a full account. So make sure whenever you get a policy violation for a single page, take a look at the type of violation you get.
You can use the review request form to appeal if you get an Ad disabled for an individual page. You have a total of 100 requests to appeal. Every time you request a review, you lose one request.
And if you get 99 more policy violation notices, your account will be suspended permanently. So, don’t publish such pages that de-valuing your authority in AdSense’s eye. If you do, you’re the one who is responsible for your account suspension.
If you don’t know how to remove ad code from the individual page, you can use the WP plugin ‘Advanced ads.’ It has a separate option to remove the code from individual pages or posts.
If you want to protect your account from fraudulent clicks, make sure you don’t apply for Adsense before you start receiving a considerable amount of traffic. Because you get very little traffic initially, and the traffic to click ratio (traffic/clicks, suppose = 100/20) is less. Now if you somehow get more ad clicks; let’s say – 50 clicks, it does affect your CTR significantly and can be addressed by AdSense immediately, resulting in a disabled AdSense account.
But if you apply for Adsense after getting decent traffic, clicks do not affect your CTR. Because your traffic to click ratio (1000/50) does not bring a huge difference. It doesn’t mean that you start clicking own ads just because you are driving 10K visitors to your blog. Remember AdSense is way smarter than you and if you try to trick the system, you can’t re-instate your account once suspended.
I hope you get my point. Thanks for reading, have a nice day!
