Invalid Traffic – AdSense for Content Explained

Google announced in June that publishers will be able to see the invalid activity deductions caused by invalid traffic on the Adsense payments history page, starting with May’s payment history.  I checked my estimated earnings for July and noticed that $5 was deducted, less than 1%.

If you notice deductions in your account too, you should be worried ONLY if over 30% of your earnings were deducted; else, I see no reason why you should worry so much about it.

This deduction is mostly caused by invalid activity on your site, such as accidental clicks, clicks from bots etc

If there is a large difference between your estimated earnings and your finalized earnings, make sure to review these tips.

To prevent invalid activity on your site, pay special attention to your site design and traffic acquisition. If you see unusual levels in invalid activity, I encourage you to notify Google by using the Invalid Clicks Contact Form.

    Here are some recommendations to help you improve the user experience on your site and comply with AdSense criteria:

    It’s important for sites displaying Google ads to offer significant value to the user. As a publisher, you must provide unique and relevant content that gives users a reason to visit your site first.
    Don’t place ads on auto-generated pages or pages with little to no original content.
    Your site should also provide a good user experience through clear navigation and organization. Users should be able to easily click through your pages and find the information they’re seeking.
