What happens if you accidentally click on your own adsense ads? Happens sometimes when pages aren't loading properly.
You are playing with fire, especially if you are new to adsense.
Long term users with thousands of clicks in their history probably are safer as the dodgy clicks are such a small percentage.
If you are just starting out and two of your first five are suspicious you are likely to risk losing your account.
Make sure none of your friends try to "help" you by clicking ads. Many have been banned because of such helpers.
You just have to believe that Google are 100% on top of analysing clicks! - don't do it.
Sometimes I want to see what 'my' ad's are saying.... just go click it somewhere else to find out.
I agree with mcbean as well, play it VERY safe.
You are talking about accidental click,I guess even a single accidental click needs to avoided,yet if it happens only once unintentionally, then nothing will happen.More accidental clicks means Google will put you on suspicious account list and in the end you lose your account
A single click every few months is okay, it's pretty obvious when clicks are accidental.
However everytime you make an accidental click, Google have to consider whether you are,
a) Doing it on purpose
b) Whether it's worth the negative impact your accidental clciks have on the advertisers, compared to the benefit you bring to the Adsense program.

I have absolutely no intention of ever doing so, but has anyone any idea what does count as click fraud? i.e. 1 click, 2 clicks or lots? I can imagine it isn't that difficult if you do adsense long enough to at some...

Can it go against Google rules if they have deliberately done this thinking they are helping you? I am worried because I just had a comment posted saying "thumbs up and adsense."
