I recently published a Hub last night and while reading it again this morning, I accidentally clicked on a banner ad that was at the bottom of it. I know that Adsense frowns upon clicking on your own ads, and this is honestly the first time that I've ever done that. I'm so worried that they'll freeze my account or something.
Do you think this would cause a serious problem for me?
That's not enough to be penalised, just make sure you be careful not to click on your own ads because repeating the same mistake will land you in trouble with AdSense team.
