Do You Support Your Fellow Hubbers?

    When you, as a Hubber, visit other peoples Hubs, do you also visit or click on a Google ad to help support the Hubbers page that you are visiting?

      i support my fellow hubbers by reading their hubs, commenting on them, rating them UP if they are exceptional, and fanning them, and try to answer new hubber's questions in the forums if i can. i never click any of their ads though; i don't think we are allowed to do that.

    That is NOT the way to support fellow hubbers. In fact that kind of support may well see the hubber banned.

    Support your fellow hubbers by engaging with them, leaving feedback, rating their hubs.

    For the love of Frog - do not get clicky. An accidental/occasional one here and there is tolerated.

    Don't go there Hubbers smile

      Banned?  Are you saying that if I like a hub, see an ad of interest, click on it, they could be banned or worse yet, I could be banned?  I do not get it.  Why?

      From what I have heard, it is when you click on your own ads.  Not others.

        Only if you make a habit of it. One time will not hurt.

        As UW said - it's click happy that would cause a problem. I know I've had the occasional hubber ad click but seriously, I'm talking a handfull over 7 months.

        If in doubt, don't touch smile

        That's also good advice when you're near something hot, like a fire.

    only if I am not logged in and if its something I am interested in. I dont know if it matters or not, but I try to not make suspicious looking activity.

    No...I do not click on the ads. Most people around here would prefer that you don't click their ads, leave that for people who come from outside. If I see an ad that I am very interested in I will click it, but I certainly will not click just to help support someone.

      I am with UW, if I see an ad I am interested in then yea I might click on it but usually I just read, thumbs up and leave a comment

    you can buy something from one of my amazon ads if you wish big_smile otherwise a up rating or nice comment are the best ways of showing appreciation for my work, getting click happy could get me banned and if you have adsense it could get you banned too.

    If I have read a hub, and want more information, and see an interesting add, I will look. This is very rare, and I am careful not to keep clicking as this could be seen by google in a bad light. I always rate up, even if I leave no comment. You should never do this as a favour unless you are genuine, and there is a chance you will buy at the end of the rainbow.

    I read, I vote, I may comment, and I sometimes link to from my own Hubs - but I never click.  I guess the minute I'm signed into HubPages I know I need to be immune to ads.

        getting educated here, I didn't realize you shouldn't click on OTHER HUBS ads - but I don't because I'm always in too much of a hurry - from now on I will refrain because its bad - don't wanna be bad.

    I agree with everyone on here however if I do read someone's hub and do find an ad that is of interest and is something I would join or possibly entertain the benefits ,I do click and it isn't anywhere written that we should not but I do not just click to support another hubber I prefer to read, comment and socialize. smile

    Click only when interested in an ad and only do it when not logged into Hub pages .
