    SandraR please clarify what you mean - should I have not posted the link or should I have broken it up so as to not enhance their rankings?

    Nothing against you --- The damn site http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com hit me with 3 pop-ups.

    If you know in advanced a site is going to go pop-up crazy -- A heads up would be nice, so we can turn back on my pop-up blocker!



    The article was a good read!

    Since you singled out Google in the topic heading, I'm assuming that you mean someone who is displaying Adsense ads on their site is paying the folks in India to click on them?

    Google has maintained that they are closely monitoring clicks to prevent or stop this kind of fraud. What do you know that they aren't telling us?

    For what it's worth, the Adwords campaign I'm managing for a client hasn't had a click from India as far as I see. I'm not ready to panic yet.

    I reported click fraud like this to OVERTURE, on specific keywords, but have not had a problem like this with AdWords.

    I don't know if these are google ads - hopefully not. I hope google can as mentioned, safegaurd against this. I bring this up as possibly a new threat. I could envision some large website holder developing a system whereas clickers, via some script or software, spread out their clicks over many different sites in such a way as to get past safegaurds. They would however, have to mask ip addresses which may difficult.
