So, you finally got your website off the ground, managed to get a few people to visit and now you're ready to make money online. Great! You sign up for your Google Adsense account and wait. You want to make sure your ads are relevent to your site content but not a competitor, so you click on them JUST to see who is running the ad.

Google removed your account for 'click fraud'! Yup, you heard right, FRAUD. How so, you ask. Well, advertisers are paying you to send traffic to them. When someone clicks an ad on your site and get directed to the advertiser you get credit for sending them traffic. This MUST be genuine traffic (not you or your friends).
