    Click fraud means clicking on the ads yourself or using a robot to click on the ads many times to earn more. Only the visitors on your site can click the ads. Clicking the ads yourself is a violation against Google TOS. Click fraud is a problem for Google because it reduce the confidence of the advertiser as it can lead them to get a lower conversion rate.

    If these click is being made on Adsense based website, it can be easily recognizable and so the action will be done as a ban of the account. Google may not mind a few click from same IP address but if there are loads of clicks for a particular period, it will be ban forever.

    Google appreciate mainly Clicks by organic traffic, I means when a website link ranked in google search for specific keywords and after opening website if the user clicks on Ads it will be admired and rewarded by google.

    @sunshine@sunshine : Very true of you! Organic and yes these days the other medium of source of traffic like social media, bookmarking submission also can lead traffic in some manners. Until you really have got optimized your website on various SE's you can still entertain yourself with other sources.
    The major issue is that, you should need to be pretty aware that Google will not appreciate your fraud clicks that lead to your Adsense account ban permanently.

    Click Fraud come under several ways, not just clicking on own ads, using automated system, asking someone to click on your ads. In these days Google is strict and they won't even answer to your question except the ban decision.

    To escape from fraud clicks you can follow these simple steps: 1. Exclude the IP addresses when you detect them, 2. Give ads on secured platforms like Facebook and Twitter 3. Do reseller marketing, so then you can avoid publisher fraud clicks 4. Adjust ad targeting.
