*edit title- cause, not caused.

I just noticed that one of my sites with Adsense got 5 straight clicks from the same visitor. It all happened on the same one or two page loads.

Does something like this put my Adsense account at risk, and is there anything I can do about it to protect myself?

    Hi dandee0014,

    People will do that from time to time, I wouldn't worry about it unless you see this happening with some frequency.

    There are scripts that will prevent multiple clicks on ads and if you are using a CMS like Wordpress there are ad management plugins that will help you mange these situations.

      Thanks. I just noticed two more that came in and I think they were from the same visitor, though I noticed that I didn't get any credit (monetarily) for the clicks. Maybe that's how they handle it. I just don't want to risk getting banned because of someone else's carelessness or recklessness.

      I am using Wordpress - any plugins you can suggest that'd give me that protection you're talking about?

        Hi dandee0014,

        The only one I have tried is "Who Sees Ads". Seems to do the trick.

      Couldn't have asked for a better person to reassure me about that.

      Thanks again...for your response, and for your invaluable course.
