    I own a few micro niche sites, last week i got my adsense account blocked because invalid clicks (of course it wasnt me) , of course google didnt care that it wasnt me and they didnt even asnwer me.

    I put on my brother ads and today i saw through statcounter that some person from the same ip at the same time clicked 23 times in my ad, obviously someone is trying to get me banned again.

    How can i prevent from peoples to click more then one time in my ads? any plug in or script? someone can help?!!

    Just go into Cpanel and ban their IP.

    That sucks, but I would've suggested to contact them as SOON as you found out this happened... BLock the IP like some of the other posters have said, and then thats pretty much all you can do.

    Email Adsense everyday until you get a response, thats all you can do until this stuff calms down.

    Hope that helps buddy, sorry your competitor doesnt have a life and feels he needs to click on your stuff.

    If you lose a few accounts and that person is using proxies and stuff to clickbomb you, I would suggest doing the same.

    For your brother's account -> report this behavior to adsense BEFORE you get banned!

    If you report it, then they ban you, you can use that as proof....

    Yes my brother send them an email with click activity form and we sent screenshots of the logs.
    i still cant believe google blocked my account without even getting back to me on the appeal, i cant believe they dont have a way to help us (adsense users, we bring them money too) to keep our account safe

    Why don't you remove the G ads from your sites for a little while until your competitor gave up on you. There is really not much to do in that situation. I think everybody who uses adsense fears that.

    And of course do what my fellow BHW members suggested and contact G about it.

    this is why I stopped using adsense. it didn't matter how many ip ranges I blocked or anything else I did, competition and aholes managed to figure out a way to spam click before I could stop it.

    cpa/sales are great though, so screw google and their terrible support
