Googlebot generating adwords click throughs

Recommended Posts

I installed the osc Afilliate contribution a few days ago, solely to monitor the performance of click through advertising. I've been looking at the click throughs and found something a bit concerning.


There have been a number of click throughs with a browser of 'GoogleBot/2.1' with an ip address to match.


This would suggest that the GoogleBot is in effect, clicking through on adwords links.


I haven't checked as to whether I'm being charged for this yet, but why is the Googlebot even following the adwords links?


Anyone else notice this?


Am I misreading the information?
