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...

Hi,I have noticed that my analytics if showing good traffic to my hubs, but my adsense is not showing any clicks to my hubs ever since I started. I do not understand how I can have a decent amount of traffic and yet no clicks. Could I have adsense set up wrong with hubpages? ...

http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2009/10/endortest.shtmFrom what I understand, it affects bloggers that are directly paid to endorse or review a product. Here on HP, we don't get paid to write reviews (well, some of you might), however most of us do benefit if someone purchases a product that we reviewed...

Now don't get me wrong, I totally love writing on Hubpages and being a part of the Hubbing community, but I have lost a little heart recently when one hub of mine on "How to Improve Male Fertility" had the ads disabled based on automatic filters. This problem I reported in order to have...

Hey everybody, when signing up for AdSense, they say they need a URL of your site so they know where to put the ads. However, it seems they are just looking for a basic domain name. How do I find that with the hubpages? AdSense says you can't have URL's like Hubpages.com/youraccount name . There...
