How Google Adsense Detect Clicks by Codes

How Google Adsense Detect Clicks by Codes

After several months being a Google's Publisher from Google AdSense, now I want to write something about Google AdSense. Do you realized recently Google AdSense has new trick to identify valid click and store these clicks information with some code? So, every click has different ID and it store in google database. Base on these database, Google AdSense Team will examine every single data to make sure where's counted as valid click or fraud.

Recently, end of February I guess (I'm not really sure since when), Google detect click ID with some code that we can see... these the sample :






Look, we can see that Google Adsense add some code to detect these click with same pattern : &gclid=" some code "
It always same code..begin with " &gclid= "

With my experiment, google will count click if visitor explore more deep about click, and these will indicated by &gclid= code disappear.

So, if I a visitor and click a Google Adsense ads, as normally I'll go to the Advertiser Site. At the first, google code will detect click ID with &gclid= code. After I click link in from that first page (home), ex : click contact some product, then &gclid= will disappear. These click will counted by google.
But, If I don't click a link (to show how interest I'm), then that click will not counted!

Even your visitor click has been counted in your Earn Report, it still not a guarantee Google AdSense will pay you. They will examine again before the payment date. They need to sure that your visitor click is a valid click..(ex :come from a Search Engine, browse your page, then click google adsense ads). If they detect that click was a fraud, then they will not pay you.. The money will return back to the advertiser. Google doing these analysis steps by accessing their database base on "&gclid=" code.

This is an example uncounted click :

see? I think google will detect this click are fraud because it came from a publisher click..
The indication code are : &client=ca-pub-***************

So, if your visitor just click your google ads and not explore more deep to the advertiser site, google will not counted that click!
This is equitable for the advertiser, so their money spent to google adword will not futile.

As commented that you may find below this post, klivengood told me new information :

...I was kicked out from google ads but i never clicked my own ads...they said that my visitors who clicked my ads were the same place and it said, i also clicked ads who asked me to click their ads...

So keep in our mind :

Be aware of all words offering (you may find examples : ) your visitor to click your Google Adsense.

Well, that's my experience..maybe you could "ameliorate" or verify... don't forget to put your comment below.
Thank you..

Jakarta Real Time Traffic Monitor base on CCTV

Jakarta Real Time Traffic Monitor base on CCTV

Do you know Jakarta has Real Time Traffic Monitor?
Since Jakarta citizens need more real time traffic information, some media trying to provide more up to date traffic information. Not only television like Metro TV news and TV one or other news channel, but also radio have special channel to report traffic information such as Elshinta Radio at early work day in the morning and in the afternoon. People need to know where the best roads to choose in order to avoid traffic jam or to find the ways for bypass. As you know, now day Jakarta has traffic jam for almost roads due to significant vehicle growth during last decade.

Especially for now day, Indonesia will have 2009 People Election for House of Representatives in April 9, 2009 and Presidential And Vice Presidential Elections in July (first round) and September (final round). You don't want to stuck in campaign traffic jams, don't you?

Realized their real time traffic information are very critical for Jakarta citizens, then local governance of Jakarta decide to provide a real time traffic monitor through CCTV at most of intersections, business areas, and trade centers.

People can access this information through internet connections (by internet supported phone, mobile internet connection supported laptop, and PC in their office or other spot that has internet connection/hotspot).

But, if you using Windows Mobile 5 or 6 or other PC Operating System, then you need to download the flash player support first. You may search here :

After you have flash player support, ther you can streamming real time traffic monitor. This is the steps :
1. After go to the website, you will find like this :

Goodbye Geo Counter

I'm no longer using Geo Counter (geocompteur) widget

From today, I'm no longer using Geo Counter (geocompteur) widget from with their third site map on I love the widget view, but main reason I terminated using their service is they put advertises running by hidden script. It's annoying much...specially for my advertise on my own blog.

So, I CAN'T HARDLY WAIT TO DUMP from my blog.

At the first time, I'm so impressed by their widget attractive. And I realized they have policies that they will puts some ads in my blog. But, never know how often their pop up ads every time I and my friends or visitor load my blog. Until I count that their ads pop up in 2-3 ads windows for every single blog loading. Sometime their ads also appear inline of any word and crash my inline ads from adbrite or kontera which truly give me cash . I'm sure some of you still remember how disappointed when come to my blog in the past. I'm so sorry for that.

As you can read from, they have policies :


  1. Our widgets are offered free of charge.
  2. HTML code may not be modified by users.
  3. We offer no guarantees of uptime or reliability.
  4. In order to use our free services, you must include ALL of the html given when you sign up including the sponsored link. You may not alter the code. (exceptions may be made for minor formatting that does not hide the links)
  5. If you have any adult content, you must use the right HTML code.
  6. Some of the Products and Services are supported by advertising (Clicksor,CPX interactive(Yahoo),Linkshare,Gunggo...), enabling WIDGEO to provide them to you at no cost. When you use these free services, you agree to allow WIDGEO to display advertising, including third party advertising, through the Products and Services. WIDGEO reserves the right to modify the Products and Services from time to time, for any reason, and without notice, including the right to terminate the Products and Services or to change the nature, style, or form of advertisements displayed through the Products and Services.
  7. With the use of Widgeo products and services on the site it is accepted that WIDGEO has the right to place advertisements on the site in any format or through any channel, including but not limited to e-mail, layer ads, pops, banners and other usual formats without any forewarning and it is furthermore accepted that WIDGEO takes no responsibility for the advertising content and that WIDGEO shall not be liable for any losses incurred regarding this advertising.
  8. reserves the right to terminate this service at any time and offers no guarantees of uptime or accuracy.

And, not like other similar service, I can't see my traffic detail when I click that widget. So, it less useful for me. They only show traffic report on the widget in my blog. This traffic only for a single day and total visitor information. So, I can't get my yesterday traffic information by this service. This is the widget look in my blog a minutes before I dump it (March 18, 2009 GMT+7) :

Anyway still I want to thank you for your services until this day. Goodbye !! Now, as you see I had replace it with other counter service which I'll discuss in my next post : Online Traffic Counter and Statistic Service Provider

Pulau Untung Jawa is one of bunch Pulau Seribu. You may reach the island from Marina Pier or from Tanjung Jawa (near Soekarno Hatta Airport). I suggest you to reach from tanjung jawa, because it's only take about 30 minutes to the island with a sailboat. From Marina Pier, you could spend 3-4 hours (even with a boat) depending to weather. To use sailboad, you need to pay about IDR 5,000 - 15,000 (about US$ 1). In this island, you may stay on homestay. I want you to keep in mind, this is not a hotel standard. It cost IDR 100,000 (US$8.33)/night for ingenuous - IDR 450.000 (US$37.5)/night with air conditioning facilities. Or, you could try a camping for free ones.

In this island, I and my familly stay for a couple days. This is small island with +/- 100 people. We could enjoy sea and beach panorama here by swimming, diving, circling, night fishing, or rent a sailboat.

If you rent a bicycle, then you could island-circling for 30 minutes only. Rent a bicycle cost IDR 5.000 (US$ 0,4) for one hour.

You could rent a sailboat from local citizen for travelling to near islands such as Pulau Rambut, Pulau Cipir/Khayangan, Pulau Bidadari, Pulau Onrus, and Pulau Kelor.

Pulau Bidadari
This is a well developed tourism place. There is a three star hotel with natural beach side. On this island, we could see a fortress that build by Dutch on +/- 1500 A.D.
