Yesterday I start receiving a high number of clicks that didn't jive with my average CTR. So I immediately logged into GA and started checking to make sure no one was clicking on my ads numerous times. Most of the time the number of clicks in Adsense match up to the clicks in GA.
Well yesterday GA was only reporting half the number of clicks then I actually received. I also received these clicks throughout the day and not all at once.
So I wake up this morning and my CTR is high once again and GA is only reporting half of the clicks.
I wouldn't think it is click fraud since I only show ads to search engine visitors. There are no ads clicked from referrals or direct visitors. Plus my niche is one that doesn't generate click bombers :)
Anyways, basically I want to know if this is normal and if anyone has witnessed anything like this.
