    1. Hello Salek,

      No salek its not like that. Google will banned your adsense account if you caught doing black hat SEO or spamming.

      here invalid activity means, user might have clicked the ad by mistake or advertiser may have not got the pay per lead or if google thinks this click is invalid. In these cases google won't pay anything to publishers.
