Ever heard of "Click Fraud?"

I hadn't until just this morning, but apparently it's a relatively new scam in town -- and if you advertise on search engines, you should too.

The scam involves someone clicking on your ad multiple times -- not to buy the product -- but to increase your ad spending, bump your ad off the search engine, or even make money off you.

Worst of all, there appears to be no real solution at this time.
