So, I don't want to get into too many details, but there is a competitor of mine who is known to do shady stuff. He is definitely clicking on my ads, and because the CPCs are so high, it's not negligible. I have calculated he has actually more than doubled my ad cost from something like $40/day to sometimes over $100. Tonight, for example, I saw 6 clicks in a 12 minute period from 3AM to 4AM that were all webhost IPs, definitely false clicks - got charged for all of them. At $4/click that is $24. So, obviously this guy has a system. Google Adwords, I've calculated, catches about 25% of invalid clicks (as opposed to the vast amounts of press they try to push). I've disabled my ads because I simply cant afford $100 days without conversions because of this guy. My questions are this: 1) Is it taboo to look to hire someone on here to get someone to return the favor to this jackass? If not, where do I find this service? 2) If it is taboo, what options would you suggest, aside from generally just working on monopolizing the free search listings? Thanks guys.
