    Google opens up on Click Fraud
    Google responds to the click fraud outcry with a new tool.

    http://news.com.com/2100-1024_3-6098...8469&subj=news

    The article cites the estimate of click fraud to be between 14% and 20%. Whaddaya think?

    Sorry - I thought you might be refering to another google tool - they are so full of free goodie tools.

    may be its a tool inside AdWords, I havent tried AdWords yet.

    As pointed out @ TW
    "It ain't "click fraud" stats, it's "invalid click" stats. There's a very big difference."
