    So i am no.1 for a micro niche keywork that has been bring me sales of $30 a day but suddenly sales have dropped due to a competitor now no.1 using Adwords. I cant use Adwords as i got a warning from Google about my landing/Affiliate page, yet my rival seems to be able to get away with exactly thesame thing and costing me money now!!

    Has anyone tried clicking on a rivals sponsor link to use up their Adwords credit? Also would multiple clicks on a sponsor link from thesame ip address count as one clickor multiple clicks?

    Hey Bestmate,
    I would just like to say "Karma" is a bitch. I know this is blackhatworld, but click bombing another site is not cool, but I know people do it all the time.

    Just be careful. I know you are frustrated but see if you can tweak your page to use adwords, or try Miva or Microsoft Adcenter. They are both cheaper and more lenient then Google. One campaign that costs me .30 per click on Google is running me about .12 on Miva. Less then half the Google adwords cost.

    Good Luck.

    There are alternatives to Adwords, albeit not as effective though... maybe you could as bigg_capp said, tweak your page and try again, maybe even contact Adwords support and ask them to assist you on getting up a campaign?

    But... I would not suggest clickbombing, but if you were to do it; rotate IPs and click it to a very unhealthy CTR

    Quoted for the truth..
    This would work way better than click bombing him..

    You said he is doing the exact same thing, that you got warned for?
    Theres your solution! Report him.
