I'd like to see Google suing the scammers in every country where click fraud schemes are advertised and found. Leaving it all to govt is unaccepable. Until Google does this, it doesn't have a leg to stand on saying it is fighting click fraud, and the class actions will continue. The passivity of Google is obscene and pathetic.
Who are these "consultants" who "estimate"? A bunch of drama queens!? Let's see their data and equations!
While I don't condone click fraud in any way, shape, or form, I don't have too much sympathy for click fraud victims. If AdWords users don't know how to track their ads to monitor conversion rates, and detect fraud, they really shouldn't be using them.
WP being drama queens? They should know better. Maybe next time the WP and Business Week should get together for another scholarly click fraud article. :/
