Google has stepped up its detection and action against clickjacking. Clearly, it's become a bigger problem for it to have to take such action, but this includes filtering to automatically exclude the invalid traffic, and to then exclude publishers taking part in this activity.
Our Clickjacking defenses operate at considerable scale, analyzing display ad placements across mobile and desktop platforms, evaluating a variety of characteristics. When our system detects a Clickjacking attempt, we zero-in on the traffic attributed to that placement, and remove it from upcoming payment reports to ensure that advertisers are not charged for those clicks.

I wonder how much of this is slow loading page level ads - I nearly got caught by one of those earlier today.

With some css tricks, they put ad inside youtube embedded videos. When u click to play, they got auto click in ad ! I've faced this too many times.

If g can nail this (get it right) it will have long term benefits to the marketplace. That said, we'll have to wait and see.

And greedy advertisers and publishers get all upset about adblocking? I just outright filter #html for sites that do this on the Adblock Plus filter subscription I manage.

I hope Google would be more transparent and explicit when flagging clickjacking violations or inavlid traffic to help more publishers prevent these.
