Support » Plugin: Google AdSense Click-Fraud Monitoring Plugin » Is it counting clicks on other kind of 'clickable' elements?

  • Resolved Alter_ego


    Hi René,

    I installed and configured the plugin. It seemed to work fine but, yesterday, I realized that I had one blocked IP (because it seemed to have clicked 3 times some ‘element’). So, I searched for it through my statistics data and found out that this IP, had opened (enlarged) 3 of the pictures existing in my blog (it uses Lightbox to show/enlarge pictures) but, I didn’t see that this IP had clicked any of the adsende ads…(I use Statcounter to track the clicks in my site).

    So, is the plugin maybe counting those ‘clicks’ to enlarge the pictures as ‘clicks’ on the ads?

    The script only checks content that is inside your defined DIV, but i
    I could check it on your website when you write me a mail.

    About AdSense: When there are shown text links instead imagelinks the script does count a click even when it is not clicked directly as long as the mouse click is inside the iframe of the ad. (because technical limitations) Usually that is fine as we can assume a user click within range of the ad frame is not a unintended click.

    Its not the first time i heard that statcounter is not able to count adsense clicks properly, but its strange that the IP clicked three times on your images and your clicklimit is three.

    AS i said: I could investigate the case to make sure there is no fault function.

    Cheers, René
