Hi everyone. I will try to be as concise as possible. I have started to get some unusual traffic from Facebook. Mostly from the United Kingdom. m.facebook.com has appeared as the unauthorized site that is displaying my adsense code. The big problem is my CTR is being inflated by clicks from Facebook.
This had led me to believe that someone has embedded my website with adsense ads enabled perhaps using an iframe application inside Facebook. Most of the clicks are from mobile devices and most are from the UK. I am at a loss as to what to do now.
What's also strange is that only the first ad is being clicked. When I remove the first ad which is directly under the post tile my ctr drops rapidly but as soon as I put it back the clicks start roaring in again :( I am wondering if the person might have embedded my entire website but made only the ad visible. Maybe that could explain the high number of clicks in a short time frame - upwards of 20 clicks in an hour.
Do you think someone is trying to sabotage me or maybe someone genuinely liked that post and decided to share it on his/her page. The clicks all lead to one sensational article.
Am i at risk of getting in trouble with Google from this and what can I do to prevent someone from doing this?
