A long time member of Search Engine Watch Forums named Discovery has posted a thread named Massive Click fraud on Jan 17 06 describing click fraud like activity on his account.
On Tuesday Jan 17 over a 4 hour period from about 1pm to 4pm one of our keywords which previously produce 1 or 2 clicks a day within content match generated 2,134 clicks and charged up over $5,199 dollars.
With zero conversions....
He described his conversation with his Yahoo! representative and explained how the YSM Rep laughed off his remarks.
MugShot said he "had a similar experience with Y for a client where one of the phrases that were getting charged for clicks were not even in the active list!"
