OK  I am having problems with invalid clicks. I found that i was having problems with multiple clicks from 1 or more ip address from competitors or people out side of USA witch i only advertise in Dallas Texas 35 mile area I was told to get an Ip address tracker to keep track of this problem I did I got clicky analytic and Google analytic.Now that I did I was Able to reviewed all the information on my invalided clicks that i found i submitted this to the AD-words Analytic specialist TEAM they said they reviewed my invalided clicks and they said they didn't find any problem but with a few but I wasn't  satisfied with there findings. An i told them that but everyone that i spoke with was more then willing to resubmit another investigation but they keep telling me this is what our invalided click specialist found and that's it an that's the finial word. Ive called multiple time in order to keep my invalided clicks down Ip exclusion,Geographic area keywords etc and ask every time how i can keep this from happening This is my money If your having the same problem or don't know get an ip address tracked clickys gives you the id address# an you can look up Ip address tracker they will give you this exacted address almost every-time This is a big problem Ive spent a lot of money  I like everything else but this is a problem

Hi David,

 

I'm not exactly sure I can pull a question out of your post but I have one thought for you.

 

If you're targeting Dallas and you're getting clicks from outside of TX, your settings may be incorrect.

 

Double check your Advanced location options and let us know what they are:

Make sure that in the location option (advance) you choose the People in my targeted location Option

this way your ads wont show outside of your targeted area

The question I pulled from this is "How do we find the IP Addresses of those who click on the ads?" It's pretty straightforward to anyone else but Adsense, that publishers should not have to pay third party services to protect their accounts from fraud. It's no secret that it is unfairly in Gooh's favor to simply disable a publisher's account for invalid activity through no fault of their own and KEEP that publisher's ENTIRE valid earnings.
