    If I go to one of my fellow huber's articles and see an ad I'm interrested in is it ok to click it? or is it only not ok to click your own (duh).. I ask because I dont completely know the rules about this toher than dont click your own (duh).. but I was reading a fans hub and saw a link I wanted to click then I got parinoid and thought.. nahhhhh why risk it.. so I thought I'd ask.. just to be safe..

    Relax Jerrico,

    You can click any ads except for the ones on your own pages - hubs, profile, and any lists that include your hubs.

      As far as I understand Google could even ban you if there are suspicious clicks.

        There is not much I can do if someone clicks all over the ads on my hub. I am also 100% certain google knows exactly who did the clicking and from where.

        yep hence clicking an ad and never really staying around long enough to read the page you land on? hehe.. be careful..

    Forums are funny I am an original Internet Marketing Warrior 1998.
    They used to pummel the crap out of us in the beginning.
    We knew very little about the web .

    Its tough for the hypocrite's and the people who think they are not dicks
    to hide on the forums.

    Just my opinion be careful what you post around here funride

    Even if you think you are helping people.

    Lots of  people are ego driven with under lying motives and have deep issues.

    What can you say about some people claiming to be experts on some of the hub profiles? words almost fail me  ;-)  You get the drift.

    Fun Ride Your the Man!!!

    Click Away Dude!

    As long as you stay on top of your clicks and report anything suspicious, Google will not penalize you. And in most cases they can track down the person clicking and ban them instead.

    Google easily detects click bombs and I guess they know that we aren't that stupid to sit around and click own ads all day so I don't consider reporting such unusual clicks which google automatically penalizes by 0.00$

    Actually, according to Google, they only look for multiple clicks from the same source.  I click on ads on my own site occasionally, if it's something I'm interested in.  I don't care if I get paid for it.  As long as I'm not going to my site and clicking every day 100 times, I don't think Google really cares.  It wouldn't make you show up on the radar. 

    I try to find something of interest to click on when I visit a hub.  After all, we are all hoping to make a little money from these hubs, however; I don't click on ads just to be clicking.
