Google cracks down on click-fraud

From the article:

“Google is testing a new advertising model to deal with click fraud: cost-per-action ads. Advertisers don’t pay unless the customer performs a certain action: buys a product, fills out a survey, whatever. It’s a hard model to make work — Google would become more of a partner in the final sale instead of an indifferent displayer of advertising — but it’s the right security response to click fraud: Change the rules of the game so that click fraud doesn’t matter.”
