    Hello,

    I have multiple sites using adsense with same account, If click bombing eventually happens from ONLY ONE of the sites, what does google usually do?

    1- Does google ban the adsense account?
    2- Does google drop the ranking of the site from which the click bombing generated?
    3- Does google drop the rankings of all the sites associated with the account?

    I have always wondered about this.
    If all sites drop in ranking because of this, I would rather not use adsense and replace with another PPC program.

    Is there any other PPC alternative to adsense? NOT CPA.

    thank you all and thank the moderators for this good forum.

    Well, you would probably notice it right away since the insane CTR increase. So If that happened to me I would immediately contact google about it. It's a lot better for you to approach them about it first, then the other way around.

    Ewokson is right; Google is getting more and more smart about clickbombing nowadays, they discount multiple clicks from the same IP, and it's harder to get someone banned by clickbombing.

    In fact if the perpetrator has an adsense account themselves they might get their own account banned if google finds a link :) so not a smart idea, you might get caught with a cookie or something.

    adsense and ranking are seperate departments - some will argue that they share information (obviously to some extent they do) but you can find plenty of threads where someone lost their adsense account, but continued to rank high, or got a site de-indexed, but their adsense account wasn't disabled.

    If you get click-bombed, your adsense account will be disabled, but your website will not change it's ranking.
