How do you spot Click Fraud Connie Child msg:1226293 8:07 pm on Oct 17, 2005 (gmt 0) Hi All,
Trying to determine if I have a case of rampant click fraud - or something else?
In PAID search... all referrers are coming from one of four referrers.
All browsers and OS's are the same (or 95 percent so). Hosts are different... but none of them stayed on the site more than a second or two.

it could be, you should report it and have them look into it. seth_wilde msg:1226295 8:00 pm on Oct 26, 2005 (gmt 0)
sounds suspicious... have you looked into the IP addresses further? Might want to run them against a list of open proxies to see if there are matches.. JerryOdom msg:1226296 6:19 pm on Oct 27, 2005 (gmt 0)
Don't hesitate to call the PPC in question. If its one of the 3rd tier ones then fraud is probable
