LOTS of "advertising clicks", but I don't advertisingI'm getting a lot of advertising clicks on one of my sites, and they're all coming from Google. I don't advertise, so this is distorting my numbers and making it hard to tell how I'm doing in terms of search. Clicky has always had false advertising positives on all my sites, but it's usually a handful, not a big deal.
Is there a way to make Clicky reclassify these clicks, like a setting or something?

I get this sometimes too. Lots of false positives on advertising.

I'm going to put this through to support, since I'm not getting a response here. It's making it hard to tell if my site's being affected by Penguin or not.

Just FYI for anyone having this: Clicky classifies campaigns as advertising, so if you set up a campaign just to test how something is going, it will show up as Advertising. I killed my campaign, and I believe that will fix the problem. Now I guess I need to figure out how goals work, because I would like a way to track how certain things are going without Clicky thinking it's an ad campaign.
