"8. There is still to this day no resolution on click fraud." What you mean by no resolution on click fraud? Does it mean they haven't resolve any click fraud issues opened by the advertisers or publishers responsible for click fraud?

They do not have technology to fight the click fraud, Infact if you are an adwords client and have had click fraud experience and provide enough information including stats etc. of your hosting and if the same unique visitor looks suspicious in clicking to one of your pages within lets say your signup page and they are not signing up, than google will refund you upon also providing necessary information below such as this:

- The Campain(s), Ad Group(s), and/or keyword(s) associated with the suspicious clicks.

- The date(s) and time(s) of the suspicious click activity.

- A paragraph describing the trends that led you to find the click activity suspicious.

- If you have access to Weblogs or reports, any data including suspicious IP addresses, referrers, or requests.

Thanks admin for the clarification. According to this they are more advertiser friendly than publisher.

Google is a damn huge company. Much more like a home. As I can see in the picture, their headquarters is very unique and it gives a lot of attention to the needs of it's employees.

Thanks for the post Daniel!
