Anyone tried the Adsense Invalid Click Protector plugin? I have it installed already, But Sometimes my adsense earnings increase then decrease so apparently invalid clicks still happen, so Im not sure if its working or not. Doesn't happen often, maybe once every month or two.

I have settings set to 2 clicks maximum per visitor, and cookies renew after 3 days, if they click more than 2 times I ban their IP for 30 days.

EDIT: now that I've researched it a bit more, I don't think it's even set up properly. In the plugin's tutorial video it talks about wrapping ad code around some "div" thing and I don't understand code language!

Can anyone help me understand how to prevent click bombing on my ads? I need an easier way to do this


EDIT AGAIN: ok so I finally figured out how the coding thing works.... I think. I'll just leave this question up and if anyone have the same problem as I did before just message me and I'll explain to you how I did it.

Idk where you normally put your ads but I use a text widget on the sidebar and also the ad inserter plugin to put ads in before and after content. So this is how I do it..

Theres a code that you copy/paste into either the text widget or a inserter. I will give u this code down below. The only thing u need to change about this code is replace the adsense code already there with your own adsense code. This is the part where it starts and ends with "script"

Now heres the trick...

Your code has to be php activated. What this means I dont know but here's how to do it. If you use ad inserter plugin theres a button at the top of the box where u insert your code and it will say php. Click that. If ur using text widget on ur sidebar u need to download a plugin called php text widget and use that instead of the regular text widget. So below Ill paste the code.

<?php if( aicp_can_see_ads() ) { // This part will show ads to your non-banned visitors $adCode = '<div class="aicp"><!-- Don\'t forget to add this div with aicp class --> [removed][removed] <!-- AdSense Responsive Ad Code --> <ins class="adsbygoogle" style="display:block" data-ad-client="ca-pub-1234567890" data-ad-slot="0987654321" data-ad-format="auto"></ins> [removed] (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [removed] </div><!-- end of the aicp div -->'; echo $adCode; } ?>
