Google Advertisers Receiving Settlement Payouts

Nov 1, 2006 • 8:06 am | comments (3) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Legal Issues in Search

In late July Google's $90 Million Click Fraud Settlement was Approved and we now have reports via various forums that Google advertisers are now receiving the payouts.

WebmasterWorld has a two page thread with some comments;

Got my $6.45 wohhooo! headed to McDonalds for a Big Mac on google.

After spending $480,000 over 3 1/2 years I see a $280 credit in my account for Oct 20.

I've spent $188,000 this year alone, and my payout is only $30. This is a joke. I bet I've had more click fraud than that in on hour.
