Ow! After a great month where I was getting 3-4 clicks a day, I woke up to my website with all these blank ads. I thought it was just an error till I went to check my Adsense account.

The worst was on my IPad I couldn’t log in and see why it was suspended. I had to borrow my friends laptop to get into my account and see why. At first I thought it might have been my racy post about porn and liquor laws in Thailand. It was not. As you can see on the pictures it was the algorithm that busted me. Multiple invalid clicks.

There’s a computer check based on how many clicks are coming from what addresses, and how long they stay after a clicking. The length of time somebody spends after clicking an ad is partially how they determine if it’s click fraud.

They never release the full algorithm or even which IP it is that was clicking multiple times fraudulently. That’s kind of annoying, because I’m sure I have people who are clicking real ads they are interested in.

I also found out that I had been sent a postcard from Google asking for a pin verification on May 28. Thankfully my renter and friend at home can grab that PIN for me.  It’s annoying they didn’t send me an email about it.

So, all I can say is I’ll still be writing the blog and helping you all find the best countries to retire cheap, but it’ll be ad free till July 9th when they lift my ban. Im now officially the bad boy of blogs!
