They have sophisticated methods for recognizing click fraud.

The answer is no, nobody outside of Google knows what techniques they use to identify cases of fraud.

It might be more productive for you to spend your time on developing good content for your site or getting more traffic to obtain loads of cash from Google. :)

Welcome to WW evibgyor

Think about it this way. If you were an advertiser would you pay Google money for clicks on your adds if you knew someone could click it 1000 times to make themselves money? Google adds bring in BILLIONS of dollars a year and they are almost forced to continuosly research click fraud.

I dont think I would want to know how they could tell. It might scare me.

On a side note: My brother called me the other day and said 'Brad, you make money off of these adds on your site right?' I told him yes and he said 'Cool I clicked each one a couple of times for you'. I almost killed him.

Evi, evi, evi,

I guess it's too late for you to rephrase you question to something like:
Hi folks, I am new here, what would be the best threads for a newbie to read?

They use basic pattern recognition techniques on ip addresses, nothing earth shattering.

They use:

Cookies
IP Addresses
Time

etc.. nothing special.

All of the above, presumably, and more besides.

Google doesn't reveal how it determines fraud.
