Clicking on ads?
When you read someones hub, do you click on the ads to help them out, hoping that people do it for you?

I am a little concerned, because I earned from two clicks this morning from a very low traffic hub. I thought that was really weird when I saw how much I had earned...

Is it OK to click on ads of interest of other hubbers. I have never done that before because I'm afraid of being penalized by google since I have a google adsence account. Today I saw a great ad on someones hub for a free coupon offer for Tide Pods but was afraid to click on it.Thanks,Creativelycc

Is clicking on hubbers ad cheating?I click on ads I admit some are interesting others are whatever. I do it because I feel google is cheating on us. google makes millions on ads on our work and we barely see pennies. NOW they have even cut our pay, and we take it. So to help out fellow writers I...
