Adwords/adsense Click Pact
Posted 25 May 2005 - 10:37 AM
As Haystack said, AdSense is not a tip jar (and Google makes money both ways, so that logic is lacking). In addition, you're creating statistical noise.
I am forced to assume there will be a certain amount of outright fraudulent clicks (and hope Google will work to assuage problems as they ebb and flow), but not your junk clicks. The difference I see here being that "fraudulent" clicks are motivated by a malicious goal, and "junk" are motivated by illogic. Fraudulent clicks usually follow patterns (same IP or other click through patterns, keywords with high CPC, etc.) but junk clicks will just confuse the numbers with no discernable pattern for Google to filter out or which I can use to help modify my campaigns.
You're most likely taking revenue away from site A as this and other click behavior is why most of my clients have the content network turned off.
If I'm following you correctly.
(And I use "junk" and "fraudulent" to differentiate, they're both a form of fradulent click activity, at least to me.)

I do the same thing with Overture/Yahoo's Content Match - for the same reasons!

If people have a problem with Google in general, seems the better solution is to use other services (or type the URL in the browser as someone already said) and let things be, rather than generate more money for G through fraudulent clicks.
