bogus contact info for clickers

N/A

N/A

I am getting good clicks and good contacts sent to me. It just happens that 90% of them are bogus or fake emails and phone numbers. Does google/adwords have a scam using a computer to contact you and click your ad to make them money. Any body eles have this problem? I don't think I should have to pay for fake clicks.

No, Google does not do that. Look through your web logs and see if these clicks come from the same IP address or group of addresses. You can block your ad from showing to that IP address.

Best of Luck!

It would be a very short sighted - and, therefore, doomed business model, if you think about it...

Hi,

I could be scond openion for you. You can use captcha in the lead form and use the lead form validation. So that when a single users fills the form with same number and email, lead will be not submitted.
