What would I do? I accidentally clicked one of the ads when I was editing something. I did not clicked in intentionally.
Start praying....nah only joking it happens especially when screens freeze and all that jazz!
I remember when the Adsense program first came out years ago, I added it to my website and accidentally clicked on it, I almost had a heart attack. I was like... "NOOOoOOooOOooo!!!" *echo* *echo*
Then I asked around and they said it's ok just don't do it again. Accidents happen.
Adsense take this into account when checking your stats i read in one of the forums to send them an email explaining this and everything will be fine.
I've read here that if you accidentally click one of your own ads that google will understand. Just be careful and don't do it again.
Relax.. this should help:
No worries Just do not do it again! LOL I think this happens to a lot of people. There have been other threads on the topic and the general opinion seems to be that adsense can tell a mistake from click fraud I guess because a mistake happens once and fraud, well hmmm.........
Thanks for all your replies I feel relieved now.......This is the first time I accidentally clicked one of them....
If you click maybe once in 6 months as a genuine mistake they will understand, when you click 1000 times in 6 minutes then they may have a hissy fit, they really should make it more clear as to what click fraud actually is...
Wished I had a buck for every ad that was accidentally clicked! I could take that trip to Northern Queensland!
I just had my adsense deleted for some supicious activity and i have no idea why ? I never had clicks by known users that is telling others to clcik ads for pay or any thing to get more clicks ! The E mails after account disabled notice saidf two differnt pages had to be changed ??? Like yeah ok tell me after the fact ! I was jsut starting to earn good money broke past the $50 range getting lots of traffic for the 100 blogs i had wrote ! All i have to say about adsense now is phooey !
KONTERA is better YOU can actually tell visitors to muse over linked text for more information the advertuisers encourage it !
I'm so glad to read the info in this thread! Accidental click just happened to me in my profile page. Boy, did I have a heart attack or what!
So, do I need to go to Adsense and explain it was accidental, or will they just ignore this one click?
When I first joined HP, I accidentally clicked one of my ads. I didn't send an email, but I've been careful not to do it again.
If it were me, I'd put my head between my legs and kiss my ass goodbye!

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...

Having people you know click on your ads is a terms of service violation. I would refrain from doing that in the future.

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...

At least three times in the last couple of days, I have accidentally clicked on my own ad a the top of my pages. I'll be looking at a published page, and then trying to navigate back to my account by clicking on the...

I'm sure I'm not alone in this. When I open a page I do not want it to start talking to me or playing music unless I press play. I really hate those adverts that are like a TV advert and appear on the page, and start...

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...
