Will you get fraudulent letter for clicking on related searches?
Scared to even click it and get their letter

What's sick is that I don't even feel comfortable clicking on related searches out of fear they'll send the dreaded fraudulent clicks letter.

Everything that shows up in the AdSense links EXCEPT for the relates searches are coded with your URL or publisher ID #. The related searches are coded without a personal identifying tracking link.

I don't think you'd have to worry about clicking, unless Google decides to go with some sort of compensation later on for visitors who click on related searches.

Yes, you should feel fear and extreme discomfort. AdSense banners are holy and the God (i.e. Google) wants you to be afraid, because in this way you will not make some stupid things like doubting in God's judgements ("nobody is without a sin, nobody is without fraudulant clicks - each and every of us will get fraudulant clicks e-mail sooner or later, but only selected will not be dumped")

So keep your hands off AdSense banners, man. If you treasure your life or God will punish you. I wish it could be a joke. It isn't.

I wouldn't worry about the related searches. That's all they are..."related searches". No-one is paying FOR them, so there would be no fraud.

I thought related searches were gone:

My post was before the announcement. I'm confused.

Clark,

You are correct, but it sounds like there will be return in the future. Just a 'head's up'.

Thanks Scottm. A "forced" return? Any url I should look @?
