Why is this not a science yet?

    the thought JUST came to me and the answer is probably, "its against policy", but here is my question.

    Why does everyone not just click each other's Adsense links?

    I guess that about covers it for this post.

    See my first Hub below.

    http://hubpages.com/hub/compspeed  <--- About virus protection and everything you need to keep your computer fast!

    That would be the fastest way to get everyone banned from Adsense.

    Please stop spamming the forums with links to your Hub - as I told you the first time you did it, this is not a place for ads.

    Do it again and I will report you.

      So I was right, against the policy.

      And I never saw your first response to my "spam".
      I read another post where someone said to post your hubs in the forum.

      I put it in as a signature since for some reason those aren't on hubpages.

      Sorry sad

        Its not just policy - its fraud - someone is paying google money to run those ads - they pay because they want people to click who will likely buy their product - but as soon as you click the advertiser has to pay - whether or not you even look at their page - think about it - would you like it if you were the advertiser?

        If you read the Terms and Conditions and programme policies when you signed up to Adsense you'd be aware of this.

    That's OK, you're new, and we were all new once!

    HubPages doesn't have signatures because they don't want the Forums filled up with opportunistic and irrelevant links.

    It's not spam if there is a Forum thread relevant to your Hub, and your Hub content would forward the conversation, and you say something like "well, there are three ways to do that, and the details are in my Hub (link)".

    However, we don't HAVE a thread in any of these Forums on making your PC go faster, and we are not likely to have one in the main Forums up here. Posting links to a Hub on an irrelevant topic, or posting a new thread with a topic that really belongs in a different Forum and contains a link to your Hub is what makes it spamming.

    You could have a look in the technology Forum - it would be appropriate to link to your Hub if people were talking about speeding up their PCs in there. You could even start a thread on the subject, but if you are brand new and people don't know you, that won't go down as well as if you make a few intelligent posts first, so people get an idea that your Hub might be worth reading.

    Sorry if I sounded abrupt - I didn't mean it quite as harshly as it probably looked in plain text ...

    The hardest thing about google is that when someone does keep clicking on an ad it is the writer that is penalised.  A friend of mine was banned from google and lost his money.  because someone was doing that.

    He complained and asked who was doing it but they wouldnt tell him. And now he cannot use them.  \Its not fair is someone destroys your membership through no fault of your own.

    Some groups of netmarketing do that, I never tried because it's on the borderline, and if someday you are catched to do so you are banned from Adsense for life and be aware you won't even be able to use someone else adsense account on the same computer because google will detect you're the same guy with your ip address.
