That being said, I think the quality of traffic has declined some of late, and until we as advertisers have more control over where we display, I think this will be the case. Bad traffic though, doesn't necessarily mean fraud.
I mean as an example I heard that AWA dresses up in womens clothes, but surely I shouldnt go round posting this on forums.
You must have some inside info Shak. We know AWA is interested in "AdWords. Definitely AdWords" but thus far has not dropped any clues as to gender.
Heh. I do love a good mystery.
What I want to know is who told Shak about the clothes?
I have a friend who has almost gone out of his way to get banned from Adsense of late. He sat there and clicked on ads all day from the same computer on his site and they have counted every one of them. Hopefully that is an anamolly.
With that said, content match is still far too fraudulent these days. With the sites I've seen adsense on, I'm glad I don't use it very often for clients.
This ran the account over the limit for the day and the ad stopped showing. I am still waiting to hear back from Google whether they now consider this to be fraud.
At first they tried explain to me why it might be legitimate. It was among the most twisted and bizarre logic I have ever read.
