    One of my sites that doesn't get many visitors today got 1 visitor who clicked 3 ads. 300% CTR. I'm worried I'm gonna get banned so I only wanna let people click once. Isn't there a script that lets you do that?

    I still think Adsense is a POS. But if there were to be a script I'm sure they would just be able to clear their cookies and click bomb.

    this wasnt a attack, just a random visitor. but cuz its a new site and he's the only visitor today, the 3 clicks made it 300% CTR.

    You could probably try something with jquery that will hide ads when clicked. Then record their IP address to prevent them from clicking again

    it seems like that would be more reason for him to get banned than some random person clicking on 3 ads.

    I think it explicitly states in the TOS that the ads must be visible at all times.

    Ad Placement
    Publishers are encouraged to experiment with a variety of placements and ad formats. However, AdSense code may not be placed in inappropriate places such as pop-ups, emails or software. Publishers must also adhere to the policies for each product used.


    Google ads, search boxes or search results may not be:

    * Integrated into a software application of any kind, including toolbars.
    * Displayed in pop-ups or pop-unders.
    * Placed in emails or in email programs.
    * Obscured by elements on a page.
    * Placed on any non-content-based page.
    * Placed on pages published specifically for the purpose of showing ads.
    * Placed on pages whose content or URL could confuse users into thinking it is associated with Google due to the misuse of logos, trademarks or other brand features.
    * Placed on, within or alongside other Google products or services in a manner that violates the policies of that product or service.



    and to a lesser extent:

    Ad Behavior
    AdSense code may not be altered, nor may the standard behavior, targeting or delivery of ads be manipulated in any way that is not explicitly permitted by Google. For instance, clicking Google ads may not result in a new browser window being launched.

    Don't worry about it.

    When you have 100 clicks from 1 person, Worry.

    I have found some Niches by watching family goto a site, and right click open every ad. I was like WTF mate! Score!!!

    That just says not to hide it with something else, doesn't mean you have to show it all the time.

    exactly- there are scripts to show it only when the referrer is google, yahoo, msn... etc.

    downside from the ones i have seen are that 1 click into the site, they get no more adsense.

    It's possible to build a script that releases the IP after a day, so you'll be able to limit the click amount. I wish I had done that before cause I was banned from adsense for that reason.

    was going to say this. You can rotate it out with "nothing" which should still be legal.

    They just don't want you getting impressions without actual visibility.

    Million reasons for bans. but most involve Click fraud, or violating the TOS (porn, warez, etc etc)
