    Proof of Adsense Abuse - This guy needs to be banned

    Alright, I just want to start by saying I feel like a complete asshat for this.

    I helped another webmaster set up adsense on his sites. Well, the other today he IM's me on AIM and tells me he's at 98$ for the day. WTF? He's only had the ads up for a few days, and has no traffic. I asked him how he got that high, and he said he's been posting myspace bulletins telling people to go to his site and click the ads, and he was in a ventrillo chat and had a room of 400 people click his ads.

    So now, I told him to send me a screenshot. His clicks are 200-300 higher than his impressions, and his CTR is at 147%. I sent google an abuse e-mail on friday, with the screen shot along with all of his other violations, and he's still not banned. I want this guy banned so badly. I feel like an asshat for even helping him set up the adsense. I mean, I should have realized he was going to do something stupid since he would lie about everything web related.

    Is there any way I can know for sure that this guy will be banned? Or are there any other measures I can take to get him banned? If you guys want, I'll post the screenshot. It's really annoying me that I actually helped the guy out. Sorry for the long post.

    I hoped you charged him a lot to set up his crap.

    I'm sure Google will ban him pretty quickly. They are pretty quick to notice this kind of thing, especially when its done in such an obvious way.

    Why do you care what he's doing? If he's not smart enough to copy and paste adsense code from the web site into his site then he'll never be smart enough to keep this going.

    Redirect your energy into something else other than getting him banned. If he did poorly you wouldn't care..

    Yeah, as the other 10 or so people above me has said, he WILL be banned. The moment he tries to pull his paycheck, Google will automatically Flag his account and he will get the dreaded auto-email from Google saying his account has been frozen for review.

    After which we'll have him here, whining: 'Why was I banned by Google? I did nothing wrong!'

    If I come across a site where websites are abusing the adsense system, I'll report it and move on.

    I truly believe google has a great system put in place and they ban for a reason. People aren't telling the truth when it comes to them getting banned.
