    So were the invalid clicks caused by a competitor clickbombing your ads or do you still need to investigate the situation further?

    That's a lot of invalids, normally I got about 10-15% taken off.

    I think you got clickbombed?

    They rapped you or you tried to rape them and they didn't accept? Because that's a whole different story.
    In the first case, I would say hire a lawyer. Someone I know got back 350K out of the 400K Google took them.
    In the second case.. well... that's the game.

    What you cheated now you are complaining?

    If it wasn't due to cheating then the same happened to me around 2011. Lost 3-4k due to being banned before they paid me. It was all real traffic from google but they didn't even listen to the case; just autoban by some bot. It was just that it was a high ctr keyword (30%) and big keyword.

    That is when I learned not to rely only on adsense.

    Invalid clicks really depends on what tactics you are using. Paid traffic, low "viewable" percentage and niche can all play a part.

    I once had 75% reduction for invalid clicks and it was due to the viewable ad %, which was easy to solve with a sticky footer bar containing an advert.

    First of, you can't have 3 accounts on the same name/same sites.

    I work with Adsense 7 years now and 100% legal, I make huge amounts of money with Adsense and invalid clicks are 0.4%-0.7% from that money.

    I have adsense anti-click-fraud plugin installed on all sites and blogs, and I blocked some low CPC countries and put some affiliate links instead of Adsense for those countries.

    Adsense legal book is huge with more than 1000 rules, and you probably broke some of those rules.
