When is it acceptable to "help a brotha out" on Hubpages?
Many of the people that I follow on HP I count as friends, if only in the online realm. So I have 2 questions: 1) Is it ok to click on their ads if you are interested in the product or service? and 2) Is it EVER acceptable to click on their ads just because you think their writing is good, or you want to give them a lift, or any reason other than you are honest-to-goodness interested in the product or service offered?
No, it is not. That could get both of you banned from Adsense and probably from HP too.
Regardless of who has written a page if there is an advert that you are interested in to find out more then why not click it afterall thats what it is there for.
Yeah, I've actually looked into Google's terms of service about this, because I was worried about accidentally clicking an ad. If you're interested at all I've written a Hub all about how not to get banned from adsense. Anyway, Google is definitely willing to let some things slide, but if they catch on that this is happening, they will definitely kill your adsense account. Basically, if you are legitimately interested in an ad, click it, but don't ever do this more than once (if you're interested in two things, find the link yourself).
As far as the "help a brotha out" part is concerned, Pcunix is right, this is a terrible idea, and can easily (for real) get both of you cancelled. In fact, they advise against letting your family even know about adsense so that this doesn't happen.

I would love to have some guidelines about what constitutes 'adult content'. In two recent hubs I wrote about how to make love in the woods and in a car...with no "graphic" detail that I am aware of. I don't mean to write things that are offensive by any means. ...

I have only been a member of HubPages for 5 weeks, and already I have made close to $1,000. I know that this is not exceptional for some Hubbers, except I only have 13 hubs, I am not an internet marketing guru, and my hubs are not that exceptional or keyword optimized. In fact, the only...

I am just learning all about everything on the internet, and I signed up for a Google AdSense account so that I could get paid for my articles. Well, I don't know what the heck I did, but they deleted my account and have now denied me access to another one? I have tried and tried to get...
