So mobile app traffic to pages with Adsense on them.

I know there will be lots of variables here as far as what demographic is on the app but what is your take (from experience) on if Google considers mobile app traffic valid or not?

Anyone with a lot of experience with this? Love to get your feedback.

Humans using apps is human traffic and valid as far as Adsense.

What Adsense does not consider valid traffic is bots:

Thanks.... you know my big thing is Humans have big fat fingers and accidentally click on ads.

I've got some decent traffic from apps that are very targeted to a certain demographic... but it still kind of freaks me out when I think of it coming from apps....

Thanks for the feedback.

The web is now mobile. Only office workers and us techies are still using/buying new desktops. Those fat thumbs are now what's clicking on links :)
