    I'm new to IM and have a basic question:

    I read that Google AdSense will ban your account if they think you're cheating and clicking the AdSense ads over and over again. So if, hypothetically speaking, I didn't like a website, a blog or a forum and wanted to get the site into problems, all I would have to do is blatantly clicking their AdSense ads over and over again (maybe mixing it up with foreign proxies), making Google believe the website/blog/forum is cheating?

    Has Google implemented a mechanism to prevent this?

    Sorry, I posted this in the wrong section. Could anyone move this thread to the AdSense section?

    It's not that simple. They track things well, remember this is a company that has a satellite in the sky (no direct relation, but you get me).

    No, the clicks would be marked as fraud-clicks, if you log into his google adsense account, then click the adverts, he'd be banned.

    Ok, thanks guys. So I assume the bottom line is, it wouldn't work.

    I don't want to do this.
    What I wanted was to know how this works.

    it wont work. they look at a few other things before they ban or kick you out. now if you could get the IP of the registered owner and from that particular IP inflate a TON of clicks, there may be a different outcome.

    I know for a fact that you can ban anyone you want by using autoclickers and proxies. Google will ban them because they will see all proxy clicks and thats a ban.

    I know it works.

    It will work on most people, yes.

    However, smart webmasters use rather simple scripts that prevent such things as multiple ad clicking from a single IP.

    This means, after a few clicks from that IP (assuming its a proxy :D) the ad won't be displayed for a set time interval.

    And remember this before you try to ruin someone: What goes around comes around ;)
