An invalid click is when you

1. When you click knowingly on Adsense ads on your website or blog
2. When you click on a ad by accident
3. When you use illegal software to click automtically on your ads

All clicks that are done just for the purpose of increasing hits and earning some profit, only are invalid or illegal.

The list is long,

Like clicking your own ads, like google ads.
Asking your friends to click on your ads.
hiring some company to click ...................

I think its clear.

Very first i would like to tell you that the ppc is when you get paid if the link is clicked by someone.. And if you yourself click that again and again to get paid then that is considered as invalid clicks. And there are some sites which can track from which IP the ad has been clicked and all sought of details. For example google analytics and statcounter.
You can register and check there..

Clicks from different proxies are invalid at all. Install some site analytical tools to your site and that way you can identify them, block that list.

Invalid clicks are clicks generated by prohibited methods. Examples of invalid clicks may include repeated manual clicking or the use of robots, automated clicking tools, or other deceptive software. Invalid clicks are sometimes intended to artificially drive up an advertiser's clicks and or a publisher's earnings. Sources of invalid clicks may include:

* Manual clicks intended to increase your advertising costs or to increase profits for website owners hosting your ads.
* Clicks by automated tools, robots, or other deceptive software.

Invalid clicks are a serious threat to anyone, earn substantial income from AdSense. Unfortunately, the risk that invalid clicks are not accepted. Many people incorrectly assume that Google can and should eliminate invalid clicks.
