    Need someone to browse the US google search listings and run down my competitor's budget.

    As per my previous thread (see my post history) Google themselves have admitted that I am being charged about 100% more due to this guy having a field day with my ads, so I have had to disable them.

    Now, the clicks here are about $4 a pop. I figure 30-40 clicks should do it, but we'll have to wait and see in order to determine exactly how much is needed on a daily basis.

    ----------

    Looking for someone who has a history here as it will be nearly impossible for me to track your progress, except when their ads turn off. Obviously you have to have experience circumventing their automatic detection so the use of different IPs, browsers, whatever it is they are doing to me, you do to them. If you don't know how to do this and are just trying to learn, so be it, but I can't pay you to learn.

    You test it out yourself on a trial basis for 1 day to find out how many clicks are required to put them down. Then send me a quote on how much this will cost me on a weekly basis.

    That's about it.

    Why not just work with Google to get this worked out. Just because this person is shady doesn't mean you need to be. Trust me that Google hates this kind of action as bad as you do. It hurts their reputation.

    Work with G to get him banned. It won't cost you anything except a little of your time.

    Your reaction is natural and normal.

    But, don't you think you going to loose time from it ?

    You should as Nookie said work something out with G telling that you are going to spread the word about it.

    Both your suggestions are good, and that is *exactly* what I've done.

    I've:

    1) Told them I'm going to have to publicize it because it genuinely counters their press about their superhuman click fraud technology

    2) Requested investigations (where they return like 10% in credit)

    3) Told them who the competitor is, AND that other competitors in the same market have openly criticized him for the same thing

    In the end the problem is G's only real methodology right now is to keep crediting advertisers WHEN they bring up a problem and provide proof.

    As I said in my last post, I just cannot do that on a daily/weekly basis and also rely on G to credit me everything I'm deserved.

    As I said in my last thread, I'm paying 4 dollars a click - this douche is pushing my cost from 50 dollars a day to 100+ a day (acknowledged by G)

    There's no real way to stop it unless Google does something dramatic, not just to adwords but also to the search listings because he's pretty high on the normal search too - if he was banned from adwords, that would still keep him doing it.

    I don't see any other option to be honest. I mean, I'm waiting on Google but what are they really gonna do? Kick him out of both adwords and manually remove him from the normal listings? Not likely.
