My competitor misspells one word in keyword search , I am getting many clicks and google can not detect them as invalid clicks.My keywords are modified broad match. I submitted few weeks ago report to google investigation team, but my competitor continues using misspelled variations of negative keyword to click on my ads.  I used keyword typo generator , added many misspelled words to negative keyword list, it does not help. I am using click cease to block IPs , but my competitor changes IP addresses non stop and send us messages through our page chat , that we have to stop working without identify himself. I hope someone has solution  in this type of scenario. 

I am targeting keyword +A +B , my competitor misspells word C ( that is on negative list)

Good morning.

 

It doesn't appear that anyone here has any suggestions for you. I would suggest that you reach out to Google directly. You can find phone and email contact information in the upper, right-hand corner of your AdWords account.

Hello  Marcus ,

Try to separate those keywords in diff adgroup and bid lower than your competitors, whenever you want to lower the cost always use the exact keywords.
