Working from home has become increasingly popular for employers, employees, and self-starters. While there are many great reasons why people choose this option, before making this decision it is also a good idea to evaluate the reasons why it might be better not to work from home.



What works for one person may not work for another and this is why it is important to examine all angles before making a commitment to work out of your own home. Sometimes, the idea initially sounds fantastic but then turns out not to be such a good plan at all. It all depends on your individual situation. Reasons not to work from home could include:

Internet users commit click fraud when they click on ads to intentionally generate payment from a business for a viewed ad. Click fraud can be accomplished by humans physically clicking on ads or by using computer programs (bots) to generate false traffic. While some might think this is not a big deal, the problems caused by click fraud can be long-reaching.

Engaging in click fraud is considered to be unethical because of the artificial traffic sent to the website hosting the ads. It has also become a significant problem for businesses that spend large amounts of their budgeted money on web advertising.
Artificial click fraud One way click fraud is done is by individuals or groups looking to inflate ad share revenues on a web page for personal gain or to drive up competitor prices by using human or robotic clicks.
