Not always. Spambots really don't care if you see them because they are doing nothing illegal. A well written click bot changes ip and doesn't stay on one site long enough to be caught. Kind like a well written spider. Won't camp out on a site until it finds everything but instead comes back every so often.

And AdSense does have IP stats, so if it was a case of your not-so-smart Competitor A clicking on many of your ads with a single IP address, then logging into his/her own account would leave a potentially trackable IP trail

Idea: Make a clickbot that will run on FoxNews’ site to see if their funding can be destroyed.
