Invalid activity is a nightmare nowadays for new Adsense publisher. According to a recent article published about the statistics Adsense, almost 72% of Adsense accounts are disabled because of invalid activity. A group of students also conducted an investigation into the webmaster’s opinion about their Adsense accounts that were disabled due to invalid activity.
Most webmasters said they had not clicked on their ads or motivated anyone else to do so. They feel that Google turned off their accounts so they did not have to pay them anymore. Some also said “it’s a Google scandal to fool webmasters. “If you are one of the victims of “invalid activity”, trust me, there is nothing to do with Google. Now it’s just you and your site.
What are invalid clicks on Adsense?
Depending on the definition, if a user click is generated as a result of great interest in the advertisement displayed on the screen, it will be counted as a legitimate click.
Now if the user simply clicks the ad without even having any interest in what is displayed on the screen, it will definitely be counted as an invalid click. Also if a user clicks on each of the ads displayed on his screen, then it can also be taken as an invalid click activity.
Because logically there is no Internet user who may be interested with all the ads displayed on your screen. Check out the video below to learn more about the activity of invalid clicks.
How does Google know all this?
As you have probably seen in several articles, Google uses very sophisticated robots that analyze our pages as we see them on the screen.
In addition to that, Google has more advanced bots and algorithms especially for the Adsense program since it is their main source of income and they do not want to compromise its quality in this competitive market.
Google also uses the mouse tracking algorithm in which you can check user behavior before and after clicking on those ads. It is a very complex process with many complex algorithms.
How do invalid clicks occur on our site?
As I have already described, many webmasters claim that they did not click or incite someone to click on their ads. From an evaluation perspective, it sounds almost like a thief claiming that he does not steal anything.
Curious, right? Although I’m not saying that webmasters are lying about their invalid activity on their site.
What happens is that some webmasters do not even know the policies of Adsense and therefore make mistakes that Google does not forgive and in the end Blame Google for its own mistake.
But there are many webmasters who are telling the truth. All Google policies follow, but your accounts are still disabled due to invalid click activity.
How can this happen?
Well, technically it is called “Adsense cyber-attack” a specific attack towards Adsense users to generate fraudulent clicks and as a consequence blocking your Adsense account.
There are no reasons behind all this attack and there are no specific reasons.
As a result of statistical research work, it has been shown that the main activities of invalid clicks are specially made by close people and friends who are not happy with their webmaster’s web success.
Therefore, they make invalid clicks on your site to stop the main source of income you have on your site.

Why do all these cyber-criminals?
Well, human psychology is one of the most complicated things on earth. So the compression of human emotions is as difficult as living on Mars.
No one really knows why these people want to hurt Adsense users and what they would get in return.
Maybe they do it because they like to see other people fail or maybe take revenge on their AdSense account disabled because of other AdSense publishers. Nobody really knows since the cyber-attack can be done by your dear friend, neighbor or even someone far away to your country.
How to stay away from a cyber-attack Adsense?
When you paste the Adsense code on your website this default will be displayed anywhere on the ground. You can not change that.
The way to save yourself from Adsense attacks in the first place is to not share your Adsense approval or success stories with anyone you envy.
Secondly, block ads in all countries mentioned above so that any user in these countries can never see the content of the Adsense ad on your site and if they can not see the ad, they can not start an invalid activity.
Blocking ads for specific countries is not as easy as it sounds, it will basically be very difficult for a user who does not have development and coding experience.
