    Hello Experts,

    I am looking for Protection to my adwords / yahoo / msn campaigns.
    I have no doubt that some are clicking my ads... but I have no resources to prove it.

    Can anyone suggest a script/software/service/**** that can help track this?
    Of-course, free services are always better ;)

    Looking to hear back.


    Thanks.

    All I would suggest is contacting google and notifying them of the suspicious amount of click, at least then they know it is not your fault.

    Of-course, but since adwords is not adsense, fake clicks only works best for me and google (theoretically).

    If I detect 20 clicks from the same IP, I just end the keyword. but I want to have more control, and easier reports other than logging into the weblogs and start looking for this info which is only less time to really work...

    Home Page:
    adsense and adwords use the same technology to detect and refund fraudulent clicks.

    if you can't make money by cheating adsense, then you can't be cheated in adwords either.

    any detection methods you try to use would already be implemented by google (like seeing 20 clicks from the same IP)

    chances are likely that you're not actually losing money to fraudulent clicks.
