    Hello ReneHermi. The last 3 days, Ive been checking the invalid click activity in my site. What scares me, is that the log of clickbombers, shows 1 ataccker with 11 clicks and another with 22. Plguin is active, updated to latest version (WP is latest also) and added a cuustom class. Plugin is also set to stop adds at 2 clicks.
    Ill gladly provide further information if needed.
    Thanks much in advance.

    Mhh thats a lot! Because of the technical limitations of client server systems, HTML and javascript its still possible to generate clicks when someone is well skilled in this technics. There is no 100% safety we only reduce the amount of malicious clicks on the ads. Because of obvious reasons i will not explain this steps here. I have a thought how the clicks are generated and will integrate a special function today. But this function is only available for dedicated server or for small websites with not too many visitors, because it generates a lot of database requests every few seconds.

    OH. I see Rene. Will the premium version of the plugin prevent this?

    I can not promise it, but it could be worth a try.

    Hai. I've been using the premium version but someone still able to click 8 times. Looks like it doesn't block the ip after 2 click.

    Will it work if i use class like this?

    <span class="cfmonitor">CODE</span>
    <aside class="cfmonitor">CODE</aside>

    Yes, that should work. You should be able to test it and it should disappear when u click on it. Does it? Please tell me the name you bought the premium plugin from and i send you another version which includes the new function. But be warned: it generates a lot of traffic on your site: Only recommended if you have not so many visitors or use good hardware;) Otherwise just live with the knowledge that some user are still able to generate more than 1 click. Google also uses algorithms to detect such behavior and it should be no problem when the most of the malicious guys are blocked.

    I set the amount for 4 in 7 day period,most of the time it blocks it,but this one is just too much.
