How do you spot Click Fraud

Hi All,

Trying to determine if I have a case of rampant click fraud - or something else?

In PAID search... all referrers are coming from one of four referrers.
All browsers and OS's are the same (or 95 percent so).
Hosts are different... but none of them stayed on the site more than a second or two.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

it could be, you should report it and have them look into it.

sounds suspicious... have you looked into the IP addresses further? Might want to run them against a list of open proxies to see if there are matches..

Don't hesitate to call the PPC in question. If its one of the 3rd tier ones then fraud is probable
