I know that you can't click your own ads, but are they your own ads when you are reading other authors' hubs?
sort by best latest
From what it sounds that may be the best answer. The newer ads are better because you can see the site, the graphical ones never showed much.
How frustrating. Sometimes there are ads that I am interested in. I wonder if I used a browser that I was not logged into hubpages on if I would still see the ads and if that is still a nasty click.
Google tracks you by location and IP. Unless you're a hacker, I don't think you could avoid Google scruitiny. You can download ad block though.
