Oh, I see. Thank-you for the explanation, I appreciate that. I was afraid that I had been 'smart priced' or something. Since I only know a little, I'm always afraid that I'm going to somehow shoot myself in the foot.
I've started reading up on it, just waiting for it to 'click' and sink in.
Just received another click. A total of 12 for the day!
Taking the ads down now.
I know for sure who it is, but don't want to take the name.
There should be a way to inform Google about the person who is their publisher also and is trying to get me banned so that she/he should get banned instead. Of course they can double check the IP etc data.
I will be removing my publisher's ID from my HubPages settings, which means only HubPages ads will be displayed and not mine. I can always put them back up. The earnings won't go anywhere. The only problem with doing this is than as long as my ads won't be on a display, I won't be earning and I am taking ads off of my sites also as that ugly thing has found them too and clicking.
Sometimes CPM ads can be shown, and if they get a click, it won't earn anything. It's usually noticeable when you have no clicks and revenue.
Keep an eye on the behaviour. I did get a terribly high amount of clicks a couple of weeks back at another site and notified Adsense, and also the site admin, who noticed the same trend. So we removed my Adsense code until it was sorted.
Yes I know about CPM, PSAs. Read my post above in this thread. While I was trying to contact Google, I read somewhere on the page that we(Google) will figure out invalid clicks and won't credit you for them, so no need to contact them about invalid clicks. How did you contact them?
Then choose "Invalid Clicks or Unusual Account Activity" * You'll have these to choose from: * I accidentally clicked on my ads * Reporting unusual activity on my account * Protecting my account from invalid clicks * Predicting a significant change in my account activity * Concerns about IP addresses * My account has been disabled for invalid click activity
I got into an interesting discussion on another thread, and thought it would make a good thread itself. The question of the day is how do you feel about other hubbers clicking on an ad in your hubs?Personally I really...
First off, I reached 1/2 of my payout today, so that is very exciting! Thank you all for the advice so far, but I am in need of more. I am a little concerned, because I earned from two clicks this morning from a very...
Something just occured to me, not only are we writers here but we are ALSO CONSUMERS. I see nothing wrong with clicking on a fellow hubbers google ad if it's something we are interested in. I am getting the feeling that...
Is it OK to click on ads of interest of other hubbers. I have never done that before because I'm afraid of being penalized by google since I have a google adsence account. Today I saw a great ad on someones hub for a...
