I was just curious after reading up a whole lot about adsense and coming to know of how strict they are, would it be possible for you to get sabotaged or for you to sabotage someone by mass clicking their adsense ads or using some other method to make it look like you are infringing their TOS?

    Considering that the whole viability of AdSense and AdWords kind of depends on people not being able to do that, I'd say Google has it under control.

    I'm 99.99% sure Google tracks IPs & probably setting cookies, all that good stuff.

    Usually when a click bomb happens Google simply refunds the Adwords guys money.

    So basically, it's a waste of time.

    Sufeyh, i'm gonna guess that your goal is to sabotage someone else's account and you just disguised your post to make it not seem so.

    If that's the case, you're just an idiot and **** off.

      Alright thanks for the info. This is my first time trying out adsense and i've seen alot of posts where people complain about getting banned. Its scary and I just wanted to make sure that it is within my control as long as I follow all their terms.

      sleeperz, i'm gonna guess that you judged that by my post count thinking I have no knowledge of internet marketing because I am new to this forum.

      In that case I can do the same and say that you made that comment because you thought you would be respected for it. Who is the idiot here?

        Nah, i judged the way you framed your question. Most people worried about their own adsense accounts being banned would be asking how to protect it. By the way you framed it, it seemed to me that you were trying to figure out how to sabotage others' accounts.

        I may be wrong and if i am, my bad. My sincerest apologies. I really hope you're not trying to be malicious towards others' adsense accounts, because people that do that are just simply idiots.

          Apology noted and accepted. if I was trying to disguise my true intention of finding ways to sabotage someone else's Adsense account, I would not have framed it this way since this would be quite blatantly revealing my intentions.

          Anyway I guess the point here is that google does have a way to protect their users from this.

          Maybe one way possible would be if you have access to someone's computer with their ip address, but as Paul said there really is no reason to sabotage someone else's account.

      Trying to amp your post counts? Those harsh words and prejudice of someone's intentions without properly asking him what is he really up to will not get you quite far in this forum.

      One reason why google has safeguards in place. One of the best
      safeguards, is to only designate what domains your ads can
      be placed. But there are other ways to seemingly
      sabotage another account.

      But, there is no reason on earth to want to sabotage
      anyone's adsense. No reason.


      Revenge, etc. is not a reason.

      Hurting someone's adsense does not in any way, shape,
      or form, help you.

      Why, because some people here don't like idiots doing idiotic
      things?

      Google tells you not to do that. Complete waste of time. Seriously.
      Letting google make note that your site is just attracting idiots?

    well it was a worthy question, but now that I think about it i'm pretty sure Google has their ways of preventing/salvaging this since it is quite a serious basic problem and if they do not it would heavily flaw their emphasized "integrity advertising" system.

    They prioritize the quality of their advertising quite heavily to maintain integrity for their advertises since a huge percentage of their revenue comes from adsense and adwords.
