Spam emails from my google ads

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have been using google ads for about a month. I am now getting one or two spam emails a day that click through my ad.  I wouldn't care so much if it were not costing $4 a click through and I put a limint of $10 a day on my account. So there is less of a chance a real customer will be emailing me. How do I stop the spam emails?

Are you sure the spam is coming directly from Google ad clicks?  I'm often amazed how quickly spammers' bots hit landing pages, even if they are only used as PPC landing pages.

 

Also, if you have a contact form on the landing pages, usually adding a bit of logic (such as throwing an error if the form data includes a link) will block spammers from successfully submitting form info.
