I just got $10.34 back because of invalid click activity. Of course Overture, Findwhat and all those others never have that problem (false clicks).

Yes, google does that now and then... Not sure how they go about determining what is valid or invalid clicks but oh well.

Few months back I suspected invalid clicks on my ads, I forwarded the site stats to google. They investigated the case on my request and recently I was issued $12 adjustment. Since then I have disable content sites from my ad campaigns.

So these sites are the cause of click fraud?

In the end only $ count. If you pay $100 and you make $200, who cares about fake clicks. It is not your problem. It is the problem of the PPC engines

LOL- I care! What if due to fruad clicks, I could have made $200 from $50 spending, or $400 from that same $100?

That happens when google terminates an AdSense publisher for breaking their TOS.

I like how Google doesnt offer any click through tracking. This of course, is essential to keep their scam afloat. If they provided tracking, you will quickly be able to see how many clicks are just competitors trying to ruin your advertising efforts.

This is why Adwords sucks. For 90% of merchants, its useless. It has some value for IP based companies, because they care most about awareness and branding.

They have a conversion tracking tool. But indeed Ad sense seems an open invitation for all the crooks in the world.
