Logs data about iframe clicks: can log clicks from Google AdSense, Amazon, Facebook, Twitter. Logs URL, IP, browser, and size of the clicked iframe.
Because they measure different things. This plugin measures 'raw' clicks. You ad provider will show you 'valid' clicks.
Additionally because this plugin doesn't modify your ad code it can never be 100% accurate. It may log clicks which didn't activate the ad link (e.g. if the user clicked on a non-linked part of the ad), and it may fail to log clicks if the browser moves to the new page before the log notification is sent.
From my testing I believe that this plugin's logged data will be 80-90% correct, but it may vary for you.
You need to put your ad code in a div whose class name is the same as the one configured in the UI. e.g. if you keep the default div name of 'adlog-advert' you would need code like this.
<div class="adlog-advert"> Your AdSense, or other ad code goes here </div>
I'm not going to give you a 'yes' - but I think the tracking methods I'm using should be ok. You have to make the decision whether to use it yourself.
No. There is no way to do this without modifying your ad codes, and I don't want to do this as modifying the ad code is not allowed in the TOS of many ad providers.
Yes it can to an extent, but it won't stop a determined click bomber.
If a certain number of AdSense clicks has been registered it can prevent ads which are inserted via the Ad Injection plugin from appearing when the page is next loaded. And it can dynamically hide a named div after the click count is reached (i.e. the ads would dissapear from the current page without the page having to be re-loaded).
Yes - I have lots of plans for new features. You can pass your ideas to me using the feedback link in the plugin.
Yes there are similar commercial projects that do a similar job, but I didn't look at those because they cost money!
There are public domain projects, and information about how to do something similar. I looked at the following public domain projects, and sites, to get ideas:
No one has put these features into a WordPress plugin until now.
