Often I have come across people asking me through mails that how does Google come to know when we are clicking ads on our own pages?? For them and for the information of all my readers, i thought of putting up this post on Technofriends.
When you visit a website using your browser there are various informations along with the IP Address that are sent to the website.The website can then extract these informations and make use of them ( like Google does 😉 ) as per their processes.
The Information that is sent across includes
a.Your PC’s IP address
e.Browser information( IE/Firefox ).
f. Cookies [ Thanks to Igor for reminding me of this through his valuable comment to the post]
In order to come to the correct conclusion Google or for that matter any website can place checks on
1. Above information collected from your adsense login and
2. Above information collected from PC from which the ads were clicked
If both 1 and 2 match then your adsense account might be suspended anytime.
Its as simple as this 🙂
Do comment if you feel there are other ways of doing this as well…
