Never noticed the "IP Exclusion" feature under tools before. Is this another new feature?

specify Internet Protocol (IP) addresses that you would like to exclude from seeing your ads. This list will apply only to ads in this campaign.

I think this feature was rolled out to help quell competitor click fraud issues.

A very common item I hear is 'my competitor clicks on my ads all day long. Look at my log files; I caught him redhanded'.

Now it doesn't matter - just block the IP address from seeing the ads and many of the competitor click fraud issues go away as advertisers have a bit more control about who is seeing the ads.

I want an option to stop showing the ad to someone who's click on it more than 5 times.

It would be interesting to measure the impact on sales.

In theory, this shouldn't hurt google, because we'd all just increase our bid rates.

I was wondering how exactly this tool could be used. Thanks for the example.

IP approval?
Geo Approval?
Domain Approval?
Ad approval?
CPM minimum limit?
CPC minimum limit?

I could go on and on and on.

You have option to filter 200 domains! So be happy and keep dreaming!

When I first read that title I thought it was for the IP of the server that's hosting a site running AdSense. That way if an mfa'er has a few hundred sites under one host you could exclude them all.

IP exclusion for competitor is good too.

I've learned recently that AdSense is designed as a set-it-and-forget-it system for publishers. The best advice I've received from members is to just remove AdSense if you aren't happy with the results. :D

I think google can track each IP and notice to user for fraud clicker

If I have the raw logs, how do you recommend I filter the logs to get the information I need?

Do I just grep for pagead.googlesyndication.com?

Something I also wanted ages ago. Good to see the feature there at last.
