    So some pay $10 or more for ads on Google?
    I read here before about some people who experienced that their competitors were trying to get them out of the way by clicking on their ads. Guess it´s enough to do that through proxies and delete cookies?

    Is that a big problem out there you think?

    Google says:

    "Each click on an AdWords ad is examined by our system. Google looks at numerous data points for each click, including the IP address, the time of the click, any duplicate clicks, and various other click patterns. Our system then analyzes these factors to try to isolate and filter out potentially invalid clicks before they ever reach your account reports. This detection and filtering occurs over a number of levels including the following:

    Real-time systems filter out activity fitting a profile of invalid behavior (such as excessively repetitive clicks)
    Clicks and impressions from known sources of invalid activity are automatically discarded"

    It's possible with a large enough click ring and geo diversity.

    Agree with that but where there is big money there is usually little ethics.
    Wonder how much money there would be in such a business. Knocking competition out of the ring. I don´t have any such plans but it would be an interesting phenomenon.

    Even if you knock out someone's adsense, there are still plenty of ways to monetize a high ranking site.

    How do you mean now? If they use Adwords i would asume they don´t rank so high for their keywords.
