These days I had a problem with a visitor, This person every day attacked my adsense with bomb clicks or continuous one by one.

For the moment i have disable ads from site but I wanted to know if there is any way or any java script to reach these people stop ... as such, should not appear if a person clicks adsense 5 times or more ...

Thnx,

You can report click sabotage to Google using the form that is linked to on the sabotage help page
[support.google.com...]

If the attacker uses a constant IP range you can block them from your site using htaccess. See the Apache forum [webmasterworld.com...]

Yes sure, i have reported, but i think google will alarm if i have report everyday this thing...and maybe is smth bad for my account...

I have banned his Real IP and his city. but he is joined to my site with proxy or software that hidden ip... and i cant ban all world countries...

The solution i think is to instal any java script that detect click ads and then to Ban the Ip that is clicking to ads...

I'm not sure any solution you come up with would be in line with AdSense TOS. If someone is determined to take down your site, they will take down your site. Take your ads off until he gives up and goes somewhere else.

There are methods to block proxies but I don't think it can be done with javascript. If you use php there are scripts that you can install.
Apparently the content distributor Cloudflare will filter out proxies.
You can take your site off the Allowed sites list in your account settings while you test your site with the ads enabled to check that it works.

I use Wordpress site. I think he attack me with proxies, or from anonymous sites... Do you know any plugins or scripts that block proxies ?

Thnx again !

You can block all proxies ( proxies show up in the headers ) with php or via htaccess..There may be some relevant items previously posted here in the PHP and or the Apache fora..

Or you can search "how to block proxies"..or "Block Proxy Servers"..the latter will get you a reasonably simple to understand article about how to do it with htacces..

If you add his actual IP address to whichever method you decide to use then unless he owns a botnet ( highly unlikely ) then you can just serve him 403s all day long 'til he gets tired, leave the "protection" in place anyway :)..Either method will not cause any appreciable slowing down or overheads on your site

The number 1 rule of Adsense -- never share your website to anyone you know, even your spouse.

There is nothing you can do to stop a clicker from an IP range if you allow your AdSense to run in other sites like Google's cache pages, unless you also block displaying the AdSense script via javascript, and even that is easily bypassed with a proxy IP.

If they get our pub ID and you don't have your pub ID limited to being active just on your domain, there's not much you can do to stop them.

Tighten up your list of allowed sites.

Put meta NOARCHIVE on all your pages to make sure they aren't cached and available for abuse in the SE's and obviously block archive.org

Take a look at [noarchive.net...] for details.

Also, get an bot blocking script for your site to stop additional abuse you probably don't even know exists as stopping them from getting to the site in the first place is typically the best form of prevention.

Not entirely true. You cannot block all proxies. Real anonymous proxies do NOT show up in the headers, that's the whole point of being anonymous.

It was very late here when I posted ..could have sworn I put the "nearly" before the "all":)..multi-tasking after a very late dinner..
