    I have some of my clients who run Google adwords thinking that their competitors may just be clicking on their ads to use up their credit.
    I know that You only get charged once per computer/IP but was just wondering that maybe their competitors could be changing their IP address using a VPN and clicking on the ads
    so Google will think it's a new computer.

    Is this possible or some way to track it?

    Ok great, just some peace of mind for my clients.
    I've heard people use VPS and VPN to change everything as if they;re on a new machine, I know what a VPN does but not sure what a VPS does, what are your thoughts on this?

    Things like this does happen! When Google comes to know about it they usually stop showing that particular ad to the clicker!
