    I was wondering if there are tools which allow you to click the adwords ad on certain search results thousands of times and, thus burning up piles of CPC adwords budget of several advertisers.
    In the early days I used HMA but I'm not sure this still works, and I don't like all the manual labour that goes with it.

    Basically you want to burn the competitor ads in short time, which is illegal. There is no such software which will click the ad thousands of times.

    I don't know that it's illegal. What's illegal about it? But it's unethical and OP shouldn't do it.

    Clicking other advertising links and burning their money, is that legal? I just thought that is not legal thing to do.

    What if other person did the same to OP Ad?

    That is the question. You don't do onto others what you don't want done onto you.

    But I don't know that it's illegal. But then again I'm not a lawyer.

    I am, and it would conceivably be tortious business interference. It's not illegal in the sense that it's not a crime that you would be arrested for, but you could be sued and held liable for damages.

    Isnt it the same ethical situation as buying a sh*tload of bad links for you competitor, iow reverse SEO? That's just having some fun!

    And why should it be illegal. I'm clicking links, just a lot of times and more or less the same over and over, untill they stop their campagnes running on my name.

    As VirtualPurity said: Outranking other peoples websites by using blackhat seo techniques and putting your clients sites in front is also "screwing thy neighbor".

    I'm not asking for a moral discussion here, just a "how it's done".

    I'm not judging anyone on this forum and what they do nor do I promise to bring this knowlegde to practice if someone comes forward with it.

    Illegal? Probably not but something you could get sued for doing. Definitely unethical.

    Whatever it is, it simply would not work. Google would notice. Search volume would be higher and that would be flag to them. Click rates would of course be much higher. You are talking about clicking basically for each search. I think a 100% click rate would not go unnoticed.

    Next, the system is made to reward higher click rates. So even if it worked, you would be helping the advertisers with better Quality Scores.

    A little later you mention the reason for doing so. Are they using your trademark in the ads? Then, you need to contact Google about that and fill appropriate papers. You can't however stop anyone from bidding on your trademark.

    Is your trademark that well-known and popular that many people are searching for it and advertisers bidding on the term? I somehow doubt that.

    Still, you ask how it could be done. Simply, it can't. Google is smart.

    Wel, it looks like it could be done with former services like GoodGoogle. There should be more spin offs but mainly they would be hiding in the deep web on who knows which IRC or on some korean or russian forum. Google is smart but like a lot of revenu based companies, the only ethic they have is more money. There is no philanthropy at google.

    There are click farms that exist in Chine/Russia/SE Asia, but do realize that Google's algo does account for click fraud/bot traffic and will refund portions of the used budget back to the advertiser. Do it enough and Google will find you violating their TOS and ban your account.
