Interesting...found this in Google Adsense FAQ:

"...Our system can automatically distinguish between clicks generated through normal use by users and clicks generated by click spammers and automated robots. We are then able to filter out fraudulent clicks. Clicks deemed by us to be click spam should not be included in your earnings."

There have been many threads and posts from those who have been dropped from the Adsense program due to fraudulent clicks. I've seen the question, "Why can't they just filter fraudulent clicks?" asked over and over. Well, the answer is that apparently they can.

Indeed, I recall another PPC network I was advertising through made a feature of reporting on the number of clicks that I didn't have to pay for.

Even if they had missed some, it still gave me a warm sense of comfort as an advertiser. It may well be a handy thing for google to include with their adwords reporting.

That is a very good suggestion! And perhaps let us know what ip's these fraudulent clicks are coming from so that we can block them. It would be a win-win for sure.

basically any publisher with a high amount of return traffic will see a LOT of his clicks aren't showing up.

What basis do you have for that statement?
