I am advertising on pof dot com and I gets 100s of click per an hour and no regieteration and no visit shows is in my log so just wondering how I can report this to google adwords.

Hi f2farhad,

 

I took a quick look at your site. The Google Analytics code is not on your home page so I guess you are using a different web log analysis program.

 

My question for you is how do you identify AdWords traffic? The most reliable method of identifying traffic is to look for the presence of a gclid value in the query string, if you have auto-tagging enabled. If you use manual tagging, you need to tag with something unique to identify the traffic.

 

I also lookded at pof.com. They do not appear to use AdSense on the site, so your AdWords ads don't show on that site. I did see that they accept advertising directly. I did not see any ads on the pages I did look at.

 

Best of Luck!

Hello f2farhad, 

 

If you are worried about tracking discrepancies, I recommend you find the GCLIDs in your server logs. Check out this article http://www.google.com/ads/adtrafficquality/advertisers/better-understand-your-ad-traffic.html for more information on how to do that. Without auto-tagging there is no reliable way of tracking which visits come from ads and which don't.

 

If you have any other concerns regarding potential click fraud, I recommend you check out http://g.co/adtrafficquality for more information. You can also find an article there on how to best request an invalid click investigation.

 

Hope this helps,
