Various Methods Google Uses To Hunt Click Frauds Down And Punish Them

Process followed by Google to detect invalid clicks

Google is the godfather of all search engines. It is not only sophisticated but also is the best among all the search engines.

They have smart ways to identify or detect any fraud clicks, and they have complete authority to terminate the cheater’s account. So as to show their power being polite and gentle, they might send a warning first by flagging your account, and put eagle eye on your account, which is only if they feel really necessary to do so. Else they might straightway ban your account. The ways they can detect any invalid links are mentioned below.

* IP Address is the simplest one and can be understood by anyone. If the links of your ads and your Adsense account originates from same IP address, then your account has been flagged.
* CTR (Click Through Rate): If your CTR exceeds 10% then your account will be flagged by Google. The range of CTR in Google Adsense is around 0.5% to 10% maximum.
* Physical Location: Google’s technology and tracing software is one of the best that anyone can ever imagine. It is better not to try different cyber cafe of your and other towns to increase your traffic. It does not help to succeed but surely your account will be closed or blocked by Google.
* Cookies: if you think that you can fool Google just by changing the IP address of your home computer then you are wrong. Google have set their cookies in your computer and through that they will easily detect whether they are from same computer or not.
* Click Pattern: There are certain patterns in click which denotes who is fraud and who is really surfing the net. Usually the fraud person with click and run away whereas normal people with browse for a while and then they will click the ads.
* Google Services: Google provides vast and variety to services to us. Other than Adsense there are many services which are commonly used by people in daily manner like Google Earth, Gmail, Google Search, Google calendar, Google Sitemap, Google Talk, Google Toolbar, Blogger, Google Desktop, and last but not the least YouTube. Among them some are famous, some are unknown and some are used daily by myriads of people. It’s better to log in your Adsense account rather than clicking on ads without signing in.
* Search Engine Ranking: if you don’t get linked with any known website and neither if you have indexed your website on the search engines but still you have high traffic, then Google will not forgive you. They will be suspicious with one question that how can people click your ads through your website? This will force them to take necessary steps which you might not like. Again, this is a grey area. You might use different advertising methods, but make sure the method you use is Oked by Google’s TOS.
* Advertiser’s conversion rate: Make sure that you ad clicks bring some value for the advertisers. If neither one click from your site provides any value to the advertiser, then you will get a big shock. Sorry, two shocks. One a major price hit and second your Adsense account will be banned. You will be down by one good revenue source.

While I totally back the second method of earning money, which is uploading valid files, videos, movies and such, and earning credit by influencing visitors to download the files you’ve uploaded, I am against the paid to click way of earning money.

New-bies mostly fall pray to such programs. Though some may earn money from such programs, its not a sustainable long term business plan and you loose your investment – Time. It’s very logical why such business models won’t work. Why would an advertiser pay you to click on ads and not generating ROI ? I’ll not get in deep and explain what’s happening in the back end. There are guys who know how to make money of these too, but they are one of those 1 in 1000s. So don’t bother wasting your time in pay-to-click biz model.

Instead, try building a blog, work on shaping it with content visitors love to read. You’ll be rewarded for all your hard work when you start getting significant amount of visitors. One of the classic example I’d like to point you to is Amit Bhawani

Thanks to John – He’s given a list of valid Rapid share accounts that can be used.

Google Vs Yahoo was all set to be Google + Yahoo – Deals cancelled :)

But, luckily the deal did not work out. Looking at it, I personally feel its good for most of the marketers.

Google is the master of the business and their main business model is Pay-Per-Click revenue, aka adwords. Their nearest competitor is Yahoo, though Yahoo is no where near to compete with Google in any standards – Yahoo has lesser inventory, yahoo’s ads are not that related to the content and Yahoo’s ad service still in it’s beta is not available for all nations except US !!

On the other hand, Google has a well established adsense – adwords business running just fine and improving quarter on quarter.

So what would happen if Google had bought over Yahoo ?

Simple their so called whatever competition would be killed, which means Pay Per Click Budgets would increase, which would bite the advertisers pockets. Not too sure if the advertisers would really like it during this time, the whole global economic turmoil thing …

Probably the publishers would have benefited from this, as Google always shares a certain % of the advertisers cost. But again, my take is, since all the publishers are already have a mindset set to certain sum of money, I doubt if they would really expect more.

Well, another head ache for the advertisers currently is to avoid click fraud. I came across a group on yahoo who keep clicking on each others ads ?? I don’t really understand why would want to do it.

Work hard and the money will flow in automatically. Why go a route which will end up banning you ?

Lets see what are the future developments regarding this from Google. I’m sure there are some smart heads working behind the scene to get things closer to perfection, but perfection especially when it comes to frauds and scammers is very difficult to achieve. It’s just like the Matrix – too real to be true 🙂
