What if each of us on hubpages would click an ad that interests us each time we're on a page?


I NEVER click on any ads, but I had a student once from Vietnam who was going to college, working several jobs, and sending money to his brother across the country to start a restaurant. I asked why he worked so hard to help his brother and he said "I help him now, he helps me later, we go back and forth like that. The concept of friends helping friends in a business seems powerful to me. I'm NOT saying we should click on ads randomly, but if something interests us, we could explore and view the ad, right? It would be interesting to try this next week to see what will happen.

    You misunderstand me. I'm talking about actually looking at an ad and if we're INTERESTED, click on it. I NEVER look at an ad on any website. How can the web exist if people aren't either willing to LOOK at ads or to DONATE?

    C, clicking on one's OWN ads on ur hub/site is always forbidden. BUT if I read a hub of yours 'n you're running an ad that attracks me, why couldn't I click? My point is that I simply NEVER click on ANY ads and know many people don't. Maybe we should

    In 6 yrs I've seen this asked several times; the answer received was always that we are not to click our own or other Hubbers' ads. TOS is that asking any end user to click on our ads is fraudulent, so a suggestion to notice/click seems against TOS.
