Google is now soliciting feed back when paid links are clicked and the back button is pressed.   Does this mean the end of Made For Adsense Scrapper sites and the like?

Well to answer Markus's question, I don't think google will ever do this (try to stop MFA sites) except in 10-20 years where CPC will be dead and advertisers will prefer CPA programs :)

about the back button, I think it time to have a kind of whitelist function:

While creating new pages, it happens that I click my own ads, If I can whitelist my own IP address that will never be a problem
Sorry for this offtopic comment... :D

There is a directive - which I can't find right now - that allows you to display ads that clicks are not counted. You can integrate this to your app and be sure that you never click on your ads ;)

I hope that doesn't get implemented. While I understand the obvious desire of an advertiser to have their ads convert, much of what makes the sale is totally out of the control of the publisher.

If the AdWords customer has a crummy site and someone clicking an ad on my site hits the back button, how is that my fault? With only 200 competitor blocks available to me, it is impossible to implement my own sort of quality control for the Adwords advertisers who's ads appear on my site.

Additionally, suppose someone on my site is looking for "free patterns" and clicks on an ad that offers patterns for sale, bookmarks the advertisor's page and quickly returns to mine. Yes, my visitor has hit the back button; but, that doesn't mean they will not return.

I just don't see such a strategy working without publishers having more control over which ads are displayed and some sort of affiliate-type tracking system to see if the ad clicker returns to the advertisor's site.
