I’ve been thinking, lately, about the possible ramifications of a rival or pissed off friend sabotaging my life by clickbombing Adsense links on my site.
It’s not that I regularly annoy my friends (I hope!), but there are certainly a few burned bridges in my past.
So, I was happy to find a solution when I Googled for possible solutions. I was even happier when I saw that AdSense Shield was free.
I’m going through the documentation now, and my understanding of the script is that it shows Adsense until the user clicks on one of them, after which the ads on your page are replaced by something other than Adsense — whether it be YPN ads or something you create yourself.
I’m going to install it on one of my sites tonight at 2am, when Google switches to the next day’s stats, and I’ll report on how and if it affects my earnings after a few days.
