This is one of the most frequently asked question how to find whether a click is valid or invalid and truly saying you won’t find the exact answer anywhere.But there are ways by which you can identify whether clicks are valid or invalid which I have listed below.
- If you are getting lots of clicks with CPC as 0.00$ or 0.001$ then they are mostly likely to be invalid clicks.
- If you are having too much high CTR i.e 20% or above then you are likely to be click bombarded.
Note – There is no exact criteria for High CTR since for some users even 20% CTR is found to be normal whereas for some users 5-10% CTR is found to be dangerous therefore it is upto you by which you can identify what is normal CTR for your website and if it is constant CTR then you are in Safe Zone.
Why Would Google Ban Your Adsense Account ?
Speaking straight forward Google is very much careful about protecting its Advertisers from Fake Publishers who are trying to monetize by using illegal ways though such publishers are very rare but this doesn’t mean that you are completely safe even if you are using all the legal ways and following all the Adsense guidelines because of incoming threat to your adsense account by automatic clicks from malicious bots or manual processed clicks which can lead your adsense account in danger and even can result in permanent exclusion from their Panel so it is better to take care of your account from such harmful clicks.

Words from the developer:
Pankaj: René, how did you get the idea to develope the Click-Fraud monitoring plugin?
“Its a open secret that Google invest a lot of time and developer capacities to secure their advertisers from getting a lot of invalid clicks. Thats absolute understandable as when the advertisers get a lot of invalid clicks, their campaigns are not successful and they do not invest money for ads any longer. The business will be broken. Unfortunately, sometimes that leads to complete exclusions for specific website owners. I never had any trouble like this before but i heard by some very trustfull website owners that they were banned from the AdSense account because of unspecified reasons. Problem is when you are banned you do not get to know the reason for the ban. You have no access to your AdSense account and you are not able to fix it or to find out what Google complains. As the banned webmasters assured me that they never did anything conscious against the AdSense TOS (Terms of service) i came to the conclusion that the AdSense protection algorithm errs sometimes or the website owner made a big mistake. Ignorance is no excuse in law but i know that most webmasters do not want to cheat the system so i thought about a further and additional protection layer to the one that google uses internally to protect their advertisers. With the difference that the new layer protects advertisers AND publishers like the little webmaster as well.
Pankaj: What are you currently planning for future releases and additional functions?
In developing is a new function which automatically disables ads when the CTR exceeds a predefined value. E.g. On your blog there is regular CTR of 1,5%, and the clickrate dramatically increase to 3 or 4%. The plugin deactivates all ads, so you have time to find out the reason for the radical rise and we minimize the risk that Google bans the account as a reaction.
Pankaj: Thank you René!
