    I learned this technique from Google themselves. On an old YouTube layout, the "suggested videos" would always popup right as I was about to click on the video I actually wanted to watch, so I clicked on the ad instead.
    So on my website, I put 2 leaderboard ads above navigation buttons, and I put them on a timer, so after 2 seconds of the page loading, they would appear and push the navigation buttons down. This obviously resulted in a lot of clicks. I only implemented this on two very popular pages of the website. The site has a total of about 100 pages.

    I looked at the analytics for the two pages, and the RPM (shows as eCPM on Google Analytics) was very high; $10-15. However, the whole site's average RPM was $4.

    Is this a red flag for Google?

    I think it might get you banned for couple of reasons:

    1.Soliciting clicks/
    2.High bounce rate ( as most of the people accidentally clicking on the ads will immediately return back )

    Clicks like clockwork? :) Think of your Adsense account as gone forever...

    The email will be exactly like this:
