This risk arises when publishers request their friends and relatives from numerous IP addresses to click on the ads.

There are a number of ways other that can trigger invalid clicks :-

  • Automated Software : Publishers who use software to click on their own advertisement or links get banned by the Adsense Team promtly. This type of fraud is easily detected and the offenders are punished with permanent ban.
  • Bot : Almost similar to automated software, do never fall prey to buying any service or system available online that promise to raise the number of clicks on advertisements in your website/blog. 
  • Test Clicking on Ads by Self : A lot of hard earned adsense account get banned because of this silly reason. After getting approval many bloggers intend to test, though innocently, whether the ads are working or not by clicking on them. Better never indulge in such activities.
  • Artificial Click : This is another area where many publishers get banned without doing anything by themselves. This happens when some malicious sites with evil intention become envy of your website and click on your ads consistently so that you get banned by Adsense. Since, this is not in anybody’s control Google helps you resolve such situations. Always check your adsense account frequently and see if there is any strange and irregular click pattern consistently. Report the matter immediately to the Adsense Team.
