How to Protect Your Adsense Account from Click Bombers






How to Protect Your Adsense Account from Click Bombers


As I was browsing some Adsense tips on the net, an article about "how his Adsense account get banned" caught my attention. I read his story and asked if he honestly do some illegal activities on his adsense account and he said "no", and I believe him because he blogs about SEO. If you are blogging for that niche, I am pretty sure you are aware of Google Adsense policy. He said that his click has dramatically increased more than a 100% in the past days, and it's because of click bombers, someone was probably sabotaging his Adsense account.

What is click bombing?

Click bombing is simply having your Adsense account
too much click, it could double or triple depending on the malicious user who wants to sabotage your account. These people will usually click on the same ads for more than 10 times in just a minute. If you have a low traffic blog, getting your Adsense account banned is easy for these click bombers.

This could happen to anyone, so we must pay attention to our AdSense accounts and check for malicious activities or having too much click. To some, they suspect rivals or competitors are the one doing this kind of malicious activities. They want you to go down. As a website grow bigger and so is the rise of haters, spammers, and of course the terrorists of Google Adsense "the click bombers".

The truth is, I fear on this and I don't want it to happen to me or to you. But there are preventive measures to protect your Adsense account from being sabotaged.


What to do if I suspect Click bombing?


If you happen to suspect someone is trying to do some click bombing the first thing you should do is : contact Google immediately and fill up the invalid contact form.



This will help them recognize your account is being maliciously being sabotaged and letting them know that you do not know where the illegal clicks came from.

Besides letting Google know, there are also other ways to prevent click bombing. Here are some:


Google Analytics. This is a very important tool for webmasters because you can trace where your visitors came from and what activity they are doing. Use this tool to find IP address of illegal clickers and ban them immediately.

Don't apply Adsense for low traffic blogs. This is one of the best way to avoid click bombers. High traffic sites usually makes a lot of money from Adsense, that is why click bombers will not really affect their account because they are used to having tons of clicks. If your blog has low traffic yet it has tons of clicks it could easily get banned.

Use plugins for wordpress. One of the biggest advantages of word press is having tons of useful plugins and one of them is who sees ads plugin, use it to prevent someone from accessing your site. There maybe new and more updated version of this plugin, just search I am sure you can find one.

Be careful with 3rd party traffic. I have been using 3rd party traffic generation site before and it help a bit with improving my traffic. But beware, malicious clickers sometimes lurk on these sites. 

Don't tell anyone about your ads. I have read a story about a blogger who got banned because his sister wanted to help him make money from Adsense, unaware his sister was actually "click bombing" and because of that, he lost his account. 

It may be a sweet thing someone wanted and trying to help you make money but believe me, they could do much worse. The moral lesson here, don't tell anyone about your ads.






My Final thoughts :

Despite measures to prevent this I still fear that one day Google might email me something about my Adsense account getting banned. If that happens I am quite sure click bombers are behind it. 

Getting your adsense accounts banned could happen to anyone, that is why you need to fully understand Google's policies on adsense. And the most important thing is always to be aware of your account and keep track of it so that if there is something wrong you can immediately fix it.


Adsense is still my favorite ways to make money online, but it's also scary that one day you could loose all your earnings all of a sudden. That is why you should search for adsense alternatives, they may not pay you as big but it could still help you make money blogging.


Did I miss something?

In conclusion :

A blogger friend got this done to her account no later than yesterday (Oct 2018), since I had never heard of this, I had to make a research to understand this situation better. 
While researching, I came across the above article so well written that I did not see the purpose to write one myself. 
So thank you Mr. Gaspay to share your experience with us and I hope that it will help some of my own blogger friends, preventing them to live a similar situation.

Cyber Liability Insurance: Does my business need it?

Cyber Liability Insurance: Does my business need it?








A privacy breach can include the loss, theft or unauthorized access to or use of personal customer or employee information.

There is no doubt the world can be a scary and threatening place in which to do business. Cyber attacks are on the rise. Estimates show cybercriminals unleash 3.5 new threats targeting small and medium businesses every second.

Small businesses are now the target of 31 percent of all attacks, a three-fold increase from 2011. 

And 29 percent of small businesses have experienced a computer-based attack that affected their reputations, involved the theft of business information, resulted in the loss of customers, or experienced network and data center downtime.

Cyber-liability insurance is a must for businesses that have a corporate website and/or an e-commerce website. 

Generally, the risks you face are dependent upon the size of your business, the number of employees who use Internet technology, the extent, and dependency on e-commerce and the extent of international trading or coverage.

Cyber-liability insurance is intended to cover claims not covered by traditional insurance and specifically cover cyber-exposures (protections for information and technology related risks).
