Most common mistake newbie usually made in google adsense

Many newbies who have participated in the Google Adsense programs or planning to sign up thought that they could buy traffic from different sources in the hope that this way could help increase their impressions and clicks. But, they are wrong as this way is violating Google Adsense rules and policies.

Some publishers knew but ignored and some did not know and tried to buy as much traffic as possible and they got banned. After termination, they said that Google is not fair or not clear in their policies and guidelines.

Now, it is much cleared in the post about fraud and invalid clicks.

Invalid clicks are clicks for which we decide not to charge our AdWords advertisers, since they may artificially drive up advertiser cost or publisher revenue. These include extraneous clicks without any value to the advertiser, such as the second click of a double-click. They also include many other types of clicks that we’ve determined aren’t motivated by genuine user interest.

“Invalid clicks” are often confused with “clicking on your own ads”. However, we’d like to stress that invalid clicks are generally any clicks that artificially inflate advertiser cost or publisher revenue, regardless of their source.

Click fraud is a subset of invalid clicks that are generated with malicious or fraudulent intent — in other words, clicks that are intended to drive up advertiser cost or publisher revenue artificially. Sources for these clicks include, but are not limited to:

  • A publisher clicking on his own ads, or encouraging clicks on his ads
  • Users or family members clicking to support the site / publisher
  • Third-party programs with user incentives, such as paid-to-click services and click-exchanges
  • Automated clicking tools, robots, or other deceptive software

The same principles above apply to ad impressions and conversions as well. Some sources of invalid impressions include, but are not limited to:

  • Excessive page refreshes, generated either manually or automatically
  • Third-party programs with user incentives, such as paid-to-surf or auto-surf programs
  • Third-party programs for purchasing fixed amounts of traffic, e.g. “$10 for 1,000 page views”

So, now you can not buy traffic for the purpose of generating revenue or clicks anymore. Let your blog as it is and try to build up good contents and bring more traffic in the right ways.


Do not try to cheate google or you will be banned.
