Warning About Adsense
Posted 27 November 2005 - 03:15 PM
I didn't know this until recently, but you have to be really careful with your adsense features.
DO NOT click on your own adwords, and DO NOT user your own google search feature!
Google catches up and youre banned for life

There's no harm in running searches on your own site. You just shouldn't click the ads there.

Pretty easy to find out people clicking on their own ads, if you ask me...

He knows when you're awake.
He knows if you've been bad or good,
so be good, for goodness' sake!"
Otherwise, you may wake up on morning to find nothing but a lump of coal in your Christmas stocking...

Is it really that easy? I could go round to friends houses/ libraries/ internet cafes and click on my ads. How would Google know it was me?
CRT rates vary from 0 to 100%, from what I see on my site, and I'd make money if I clicked my low traffic/high CTR pages up to 100% CTR.
Google guys note: I try my best to be so I'd never click on my ads.
I guess Google might have a system for detecting high CTR rates for ads that don't usually have high CTR on other sites. Then they could, say, slow down ad delivery.
But you couldn't get banned, as it might be your worst enemy going round his friends/cafe/library and clicking on your ads to get you banned.

Considering you probably make .05-.25 on each click, I imagine you will spend more on gas than you make from Adsense.
You could, however, get a job as a pizza delivery guy. Then, at each house you deliver to, ask if you can check something on their computer really quickly, and go click a bunch of your ads. That way, you'd be earning your pizza money AND making tons with Adsense! Google would never catch on.

But why stop there? Put a discount coupon on each pizza box offering 10% off on their next order if the customer can demonstrate that they've clicked on some minimum number of your ads (they could print out a copy of each of your landing pages to serve as proof). Woo-hoo!
Whew. Maybe I should go lie down for awhile. I feel a bit giddy...

ClickFraud is a real problem, quote from CNET:
"A growing alternative employs low-cost workers who are hired in China, India and other countries to click on text links and other ads."

Bottom line- if you want to keep your Adsense account, don't click on your own ads!

Amen to that. When you spend your energies on developing a reputable site/business (which would include seeing Google as a partner, not an enemy to be tricked into giving you short-term money), the rewards keep on coming from mulitple directions. Better yet, no need to worry about that lump of coal in the stocking.
