Do you ever click your own ads by mistake?

    When I'm working on the laptop, I am a spaz with the touch pad.  I've accidentally clicked on a few of my ads...  Anyone else done this or worry when it happens?  Don't want to irritate Google...

    I did clicked 2 or 3 times over the course of 4 years.
    Using Firefox + No Script plugin to disable javascript makes sure no ads are clicked because they aren't displayed.

      Thanks, charlemont.  I will give that a shot.

    One time I accidentally clicked on that darned Scientology.org video that comes up on 99% of my Hubs!

    Not yet, but I do have the NoScript plugin which I forgot about. I should update it.

    Does anybody know how many clicks it would take before you get kicked by Google?

      I guess we'd better never know that!

    Never, I have Adblock Plus installed. I never even see the ads unless I disable it. If you are worried about your own clicking, install Adblock Plus for Firefox. Then when you need to check ad placement, you can just disable it, then re-enable.

    In 10 months I have clicked on ads accidentally about a dozen times.

      Did you receive any Google's sledge hammer hit on you?

    While on HP, we will hardly know if our share of ads are showing by the time we click on them by mistake.
