Newbie question about "false" clicking of my adwords.

My fees are skyrocketing because my competition is clicking my adwords.

Can someone post some detailed pictures/instructions on how to block their domain from even seeing my adwords.

Or do I need to do both block their domain and block their IP address.

Hi Bobby,

 

I think the best way to deal with click fraud is to contact Google support channels and see if they can investigate. Google will investigate the issue and update you.

Before doing that please read through this section on invalid clicks.
