I wouldn't worry too much. I wouldn't disable ads either. I've dealed with weird invalid or unusual activity in my adsense account a couple times and the best way to deal with it is to report it to google asap. https://support.google.com/adsense/bin/request.py?hl=en&contact_type=invalid_clicks_contact&rd=2
I was just about to mention that link, i found someone saying whenever they get weird activity they report it to kinda show them they weren't trying to cheat the system. the only trouble is im worried that if its nothing to be worried about and nothing will happen by reporting it im kinda shining a light on it and thus get myself the boot! so to speak... hmmm
1000 clicks in about an hour? That's extremely high. If that isn't your typical daily stats or common at all then i would definitely report it. Double check to make sure your video isn't going viral or was picked up by someone/something else but even if it is, they don't penalize for being safe rather than sorry.
Yeah its not going viral remember i said its from a previously bought fiverr gig.. hes been doing the views and i didnt disable the ad, as i bought the gig a month ago so wasnt expecting it.. Just really unsure if i should chance it.. but im thinking like you said 1000 clicks they are gonna pick up on it.. so maybe i should use the form and hope for the best... just not sure what the hell i should say though lol
Definitely report it!
it's called click bombing... Google it man!
Yeah i already know of click bombing but how the hell do i word it to them for it to not sound like iv gone and purchased a gig :-/
Just be like "Hey, I noticed an anomaly in my stats, for some reason I wound up with over 1000 views in an hour, far above normal levels. Is this going to affect my Adsense account?"
Well we will have to wait and see... Im really hoping they dont close it down.. theres no way of getting it back is there? or opening a new one to correspond to the youtube channel on the banned account.
you did not intentionally ,the best thing is being honest with them.3-4 years i did same thing but i did spamming unknowingly .Laster honestly i emailed google informed the matter,they did not ban my account .But asked me to be careful in future.Google rewards if you are honest with them
Its already sent.. Im hopping they will see my honesty through emailing them straight away to show that 1) Im not interested in cheating the system 2) Im not interested in trying to hide anything from them! But we will see.
How long did it take for them to reply to you?
