    Ummmmmmmm.... I know perfectly well you are not supposed to click on your own ads on your hubs....

    I do hope there are allowances for accidents!  I do not even know for sure if I actually clicked on an ad by accident, or if it was one of those that is a "mouse-over pop-up" type.

    In any case, I was trying to get to the bottom of my page to submit a reply to a comment, and all of a sudden this video ad was playing!!!  I closed it quickly, but it did come up.  sad

    Now what???  Will Google ban me from my account????

      Accident happen. Don't worry about it. Google can tell the difference between accidents and fraud. smile

      system allows for a mistake, people have done it before.
      Just don't do it again in the near future or the system will balk at you

      No Miss !!!    a Google hit man will come to your house and wipe out you, your family and all your friends and eat your children !!   You bad MsLizzy you ! big_smilebig_smile

      I do believe it takes a few clicks to light the fuse or the system would be pretty unworkeable smile

      I am a little pee-d off right now as I am apparently making what appears to be a really good offer for some flight tickets on one of my sites - and I can't find it anywhere else to click through to either find out about it or even buy !  and I must make the trip one way or other !  I suppose a little searching will find someone else making the same offer, but the temptation to just click through is almost overwhelming

        Hmmm...I wonder if you hover,or RIGHT click, so the ad doesn't open, if the URL will become visible???? Or is that a violation, too?

        Sheesh!   I suppose it's also against the rules to click on OTHER hubbers' ads?????  Or you could get one of us to click on it for you.. LOL

        Right..nevermind... Don't want those hit-men showing up!  wink

      I think everyone has done it at least a couple of times.

      Some of the ads, seem to think a "pass over" on your way to the scroll bar, is a 'click', and-- of course, it is easy to click accidentally.
