    I am sure this has been spoken about before. I just cannot find it in the searches I performed.

    I am new to adwords, but I think this could work well to give your competition a good punch in the stomach (the good old BH way).

    Can't you get an IP switcher such as HideMyIP and simply keep on clicking their ads?

    From my limited adwords intelligence, it would cost them loads of money for the useless clicks and maybe even stop them from advertising on that KW.

    What do you think?

    I think it would damage the adsense not the adwords account because google will compensate the adwords account holder for bad(fraud) clicks but the poor person who had that ad on their site trying to make a dime will get the boot, and your competition will get their money back. Really bad Idea unless you are trying to get your competitons adsense account banned not adwords

    he probably means on google search engine so it cant damage the adsense account...it looks like it could work but google might detect it and deduct it from how much the advertiser has to pay (fraud clicks)...thats what i think.

    yeah I meant on the search engine.

    Thanks for the replies. Now that I think about it, my time would be better spent on more productive things (rather than an hour of clicking on shit lol)

    Also he is just paying google for those clicks (search) there is no third party, if he complains google nearly always side with the advertiser and will probably give him some free ad credit or something...

    Common guys, if we start doing this kind of stuff to fellow marketers, where will it end?

    I agree with Bozo. It simply proves that Adwords is not for you. Try some other channel if this is your last resort to get traffic by killing competition.

    There's a difference between gaming the system and a sucker punch.
