Refund for invalid clicks

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi! 
I'd like to ask about invalid clicks.
As far as I know, we must pay for all clicks including invalid clicks, and money for invalid clicks will be periodly refunded by Google.
My questions are:
(1) How often does Google refund money for invalid clicks?
(2) How can I check this? As I can not find information at the Billing section.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks and have a nice week!

Hi Aroma

 

With regard to invalid clicks, Google trys to automatically filter them from reports and ensure that advertisers are not charged for those clicks - in other words they try to ensure that advertisers are not charged for those clicks in the first place. If however an advertiser is charged for invalid clicks in the previous two months, they will re-credit the advertisers' account. As far as I am aware they will appear as "invalid activity" adjustments within your billing.

 

You can click here to go to a Google AdWords invalid clicks troubleshooter.

 

There are also a couple of articles here and here which you may find helpful.

 

Let us know how you get on.
