    Admob - High amount invalid clicks

    Hello,

    I ve had a happy marriage with AdMob for more than 2 years, have been invited and attended "premium" developer meetings and congresses.

    But today, as you know payment date, they ve sent me only 150 dollars instead of almost 3000-4000 dollars of my earnings have been considered as invalid clicks.

    And these invalid clicks are considered only 1 day of September earnings. I mean, payment report says that, there has been invalid clicks for only 1 day which costs 3000 dollars.

    I ve never done and never will do such a thing. My banners and interstitials are %99.9 appropriate to TOS and other stuff.

    Now i have contacted with support but honestly dont think that something will come up. Its obvious something is wrong.

    Is there anyone faced such a situation ?

    And moreover, is there any advertising network that you can recommend to me :/ ?

    Regards.

    That is why I use only banners from admob so very less money is on risk. for interstitials I used StartApp. However there ecpm is going down. No time to try other networks now.

    Admob is performing for me quite ok. Don't see problems with invalid clicks. In the past I had deducted some $$ from wrong clicks - but those were some kind 20$.

    I think i will stop using interstitials from AdMob also.

    Could anyone suggest me a pay-per-click intersitial Ad network which is proper to Google TOS ?

    Regards.

    Payment just initiated for me for this month, for the expected amount. You should at the very least contact them directly and maybe also on their Google+ page and Google Product forum.

    I did. Thank you so much for your help.

    Admob support told me that they dont have access to invalid clicks. But that department will get back to me soon in 48 hours.

    It was yesterday, so i hope tomorrow something will come up. I hope and i pray.

    I dont want to push them so much. If speech is worthless, i will try to sue them.

    I'll go crazy.

    They are quite determined regarding invalid clicks were correct.

    I vent updated anything for 3 months.

    I ve been contacting with Google Staff who told me that everything is fine with my ads.

    And now ? They ve blocked 6000 dollars and they may block for future month again.

    Please recommend me network for interstitials.
