Locksmiths Being Hit By Fraudulent Google Clicks

Why does it always seem that you spend too much on Google Adwords and not get the return that you know you should.

Fraudulent clicks on Google Adwords is not something new. It has being around for many years. Supission would lead to your competitors or possible click houses being employed by your competitor or other advertisers.

The bones of it all would be as follows:
Set up an Adwords campaign with Google allowing you to advertise for keywords as and when they are searched by a perspective customer. The idea is that you can bid on keywords allowing you to gain a position, the higher you bid the higher your add will be shown. If you competitor bids higher then you then there adds will be shown above yours. There is certain criteria which can also have an effect on how high your add can be shown and the related cost, age of your adds, content of your adds, content on your website and how relevant your adds are to the keywords you are bidding for. You will be given a quality score by Google for each add and this can also determine the cost.

Fraudulent clicks tend to be high, however the trick is to monitor the ip address it which are logging on to you website. An IP address log can be obtained form your website hosting company.
While the top three positions appear to gain the most business this is not nesasssarly the case. For most businesses it can be a case that a customer can be familiar with a business name and simply clicks them for that reason. By bidding higher will not nessaraly get you a top position either. However there is a fact that by continuing to increase your bid will for sure cost you an arm and a leg as your competitor is sure to follow. The only sure way to spend a reasonable cost is to have a strategy as opposed to just bidding to be number one. While this may sound easy it is not. This can only be achieved by experience of by employing an expert with in the field. By way of looking at the trends and market can save you a signifent amount of time and of course allot of wasted cost. By not doing so will cost you allot of time and allot of cost. Bidding high when the market is slow is a sure way to double your cost and show your hand to your competitor.

Like everything these days there are ways to track and get refunds for fraudulent clicks. One is by keeping an eye on your IP address on your website, however this can prove to be timely and not cost effective.
The second one is to put a third party software package on the backend of your website, this will in fact be by far the most cost effective way to monitor the fraudulent clicks. At the end of a month you can either compare the fraudulent address to that of Google or you can submit an investigation on a regular basis to Google insuring you are getting the refund for the unwanted clicks.

Below is a recent list of IP address that have being logged as fraudulent clicks through an Adwords campaign.

Notice that there are similarities in the ip address as the culprits can sometimes use software or devices to change there IP address.
