Is it a breach of terms of google adsense program policies if someone clicks google ads on other hubs?

Updated on March 17, 2011

How to inform Google of unusual acitivity or invalid clicks in your account and how to identify click frauds

Hello Friends,

Why I am writing this hub today?

Today, I got a hub request from one of our fellow hubber and this request triggered my mind to write something which I think is very useful for us. Thanks to the person who requested this hub.

No, it is not a breach of terms of Google Adsense policy program if someone clicks Google ads on other hubs to have a look on the products displayed or to buy something, but the problem is with those people who hire other people or just directly click on their own ads using different IP addresses or even tell their family and friends to click on their google ads in order to make a good amount of money. Actually, they do not know that Google is very smart and it keeps a check on all those types of clicks and unusual activities. There is a lot of difference between a genuine ad-clicker and a fraud ad-clicker. You can read my hub further below to get the word out of this whole thing. Please read this hub carefully and you have any feedback, please let me know and I will think over them and if found okay would try to follow them religiously.

There are various known and unknown processes which Google utilizes in order to deal with invalid clicks or click fraud. The most important thing according to my thinking is that one should never never intentionally click on ads of other hubs or blogs displaying adsense ads or his own, as Google will be able to check this out really fast with its various methods and will ban your google account or the account from which invalid or fraud clicks are being generated.

If you think that someone is intentionally clicking on your ads or you see any unusual activity in your Google adsense reports, go to this link and write down all the information regarding invalid clicks in your account. Be polite and Google will definitely help.

Now, you might be thinking that how I am so confident about this thing?

I have the answer for your question. I have experienced the same problem twice and used this form to inform Google about the unusual activity I found in my Google Adsense Account. I am sure that Google will help, as I have got help from them two times.
