Well I went and did it. The thing I had always hoped I would never accidentally do- I was trying to click on my link in a hub - and accidentally moved and clicked the mouse right on an ad!! I clicked out right away.....AGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have done that a couple of times, Google just didnt verify payment is all , didnt count it, I would think if you did it consistanly then it would be a problem
The Black Helicopters should be hovering over your roof soon !
Oh I hope it will be ok Dorsi. I'm not really sure how it works with one click I am sure there will be some-one here soon to help out.
Don't worry about accidents. GOOGLE looks at continuous abuses of clicks. One instant where an accident happens and repeated offenses are obvious.
But, a singular click from your own action will not get your account suspended.
Just to let you know.
Yep, you're FINE, Dorsi.
It may have happened on Hubpages' share of the impressions, too, which wouldn't be so bad for you either.
(I'm pretty well sure the only way people get suspended off of Hubpages is either by pissin' off picture gallery posters or violating Adsense ToS, anyway. )
I've done that a couple of times, but nothing has come of it.
No worries, we've all done it. I have. Just don't do it again, that's all.
Just keep an eye out for any black vans with tinted windows pulling up outside your house.
If you see some scrawny nerds emerging swinging mice around thier heads and practicing with their keyboard nunchucks you know you are in trouble, how dare you accidentally click a google ad
AH thanks you guys. You all made me feel better,and laugh too. Now I can go to sleep...lol
I must admit to having clicked on one once. It looked so interesting that I could not resist, and had clicked on it before I remembered I was on my own hub page. OMG! Oops...

I just clicked one of my own ads by accident. Has anyone ever done this? Do you know if I will get an instant ban or is there a degree of tolerance to this? Surely it happens occasionally to many people. Am a bit...

What would I do? I accidentally clicked one of the ads when I was editing something. I did not clicked in intentionally.

I recently published a Hub last night and while reading it again this morning, I accidentally clicked on a banner ad that was at the bottom of it. I know that Adsense frowns upon clicking on your own ads, and this is...

I was reading that Google will know if you clicked one of your ads from a different computer with a different IP address. For example, you go to work and go to one of your articles on your work computer and click an ad....

Hi all. I have set up Amazon Affiliate program on hubpages and featured Amazon products on a number of my hubs. Looking at it after a while, the link-type report in the Amazon account shows that no one has clicked on...
