Yahoo Fighting Click Frauds.Invalid Clicks Wont Be Making Money

Yahoo has introduced a new system to eliminate invalid clicks or what may be termed as fraudulent clicks.The system is called 'Click Protection System' and the publisher will be getting a 'Click Filter Report' on his YPN homepage.This report will be a summary of the clicks identified as invalid.Yahoo has introduced this system so as to ensure quality traffic to its advertisers.In Yahoo 's terms this would be a big blow to all click fraud mafia who targets a particular industry in most cases.

The practicality of this system is yet to be seen.However Yahoo seems to be optimistic about getting positive results.The report is anyhow made customisable with option to include details like Impressions,invalid clicks, invalid click rate, and average cost-per-click.This new system introduction will be followed by many such plans as a part of Yahoo's quest for quality traffic production.Yahoo's tie up with 'Click Forensics' might be one of the best measures ever taken by the YPN.

Cannot login to Myspace?What to do when your Myspace account is phished ?

There maybe other reasons than a hacked account if your myspace profile looks messed up and different from the way you left it.A faulty html/css code is one of it.If it is a case of phishing then try retreiving your password using the password retrieval tool.If that doesn't do the job,try emailing Myspace customer service.This might do the job for you.

In case of a html/css error try replacing the recently installed layout.A faulty code on the layout can result in a mess for your profile.And if someone is pretending to be you on a fake profile,you can prevent any further annoyance by sending a "salute" to Myspace.
What is a "salute"?
An image of yourself holding a handwritten sign with the word "MySpace.com" and your Friend ID (your Friend ID number appears immediately after "friendID=" in the web address/URL when viewing your profile).Myspace then removes the profile that uses your identity without your permission.This is possible only in cases when the faker is using your pic as his/her profile pic."Salute" should be mailed to the customer care id mentioned above.
