Clicking 10 times on an add by the same user will affect my cost?

How does clicks on an ad count for billing? If the same user clicks my add 10 times a day will that affect my costs?

If so, how can Google protect me from an abuse of my competitors who can click on my add until reaching the daily budget?

Hi cristian

 

Welcome to the AdWords community :-)

 

AdWords monitors click activity and any repeated or mallicious clicks on your account will be detected and filtered, or you will receive a credit if further analysis shows that any clicks were not picked up in the first stage of detection. I'm including some reading material about this-

 

Invalid clicks

About invalid traffic

 

I hope this helps you

 

Kind regards

Hello and welcome,

 

To follow Hel_ipe, I would encourage you to read this reference where it is explained in fair detail about how Google protects advertisers from invalid clicks which could ruin their budget.

My 2 cents!
