Guys and gals, don't wondering around with AS, that is not your fault, go happy hours, keep your brain off from AS then come back do something productive for your site .... :P

All the grown-ups are at SES NY and panic has set in at the Googleplex. Next week it will all be fixed. Not to worry.

Though it is annoying to be losing money this way. :)

If true it could mean the end of Googles adsense program.

Yeah, that is a scary sounding article.
Least it is out in the open so it can be addressed , and no doubt will be with the vast $ at stake.
Hopefully most advertisers with a real product are still getting a decent conversion.

Maybe the zombie click problem has scared off some advertisers. That would make sense. I'm getting a good click through rate but earning less. Less advertisers means less bidding and less earnings.

I think the zombie PC problem has peaked. There may still be a large installed base, but that's gradually going to get smaller and smaller. Microsoft has been criminally irresponsible in the past, but they seem to be ahead of the curve on spyware now.

Also the statement that zombie PC clicks "are all but impossible for Google to detect" is wrong, or at least misleading. For one thing, Google don't have to detect every false click; they merely have to identify those accounts whose earnings consist primarily of clicks from zombie PCs. Especially accounts with high earnings, which are hard to disguise.

I can think of a few ways to do that, but I won't get specific for fear of helping organized crime in their efforts. One thing I will recommend, though, is that Google get a bunch of Win98 PCs and infect them with every piece of spyware they can get their hands on. Then put them on dedicated IP addresses and see which ones start mysteriously generating AdSense clicks.

Everything should be based on facts, if AS still gives the best ROI in the market, who scares about that? Is it a real problem?

If there were big problems with Google or the net in general wouldn't it be all over news reports and sites?

Where do you think news reports that make it big on this topic come from? Straight from this forum.

Ann,

PPC isn't going anywhere. There is waaay too much money in it. Credit card fraud is rampant. I think that says it all.

You may well be right. I was commenting on a possible reason for poor payment per click in the last few days. In the long run things are ever changing.

Which is all a bit off topic as Google being down a bit would affect the number of impressions but not the rate of pay per click.
