It comes to my concern that the click frauds is rising consumingly in the PPC industry, specially in the price comparison search engines.

I've told shopping.com that it is unusual that there were too many clicks from two IP addresses, the shopping.com supporting guys agree to credit those fraud clicks to my account, but I still have received nothing about the credit.

I'm not sure if shopping.com has any business deals with them, but I think they send robots to click shopping.com's listing in multiple threads, and shopping.com has no any click fraud filters.

Wake up buddy, those PPC search engines are actually stealing a lot of money from us in every second.

At least, I had already cancelled my pricegrabber accounts for the click fraud reason.

Since I cancelled a couple account in pricegrabber, nextag and bizrate, I've been investing the PPC money to other strategy like SEO, blog, article links, the result is good so far, and the sales have been increased 20%, even without the PPC.

Jimpoo, would you explain your new strategies a little more?
