Clicking on ads in error
Today I accidently clicked on my own ads, not once but twice. I went to google's site and under the help tab it said that if it happens occasionally. I am still a bit worried. I couldn't find an email or ph# on the adsense page. I'm afraid of getting banned. I've worked so hard. Can anyone give me some advice? thanks!!
There's no need to worry. It happens sometimes by mistake but beware of next time. As Google has strict their policy and if they find continuous clicking on ads can banned your account.
Google takes a consistent measure of your behavior and if there is any behavior outside the norm that costs them money and trust with their clients, we get zapped.
I avoid clicking links like the plague. Hence, I have never clicked an ad in my life until the last two months, and they were not on my pages and I was in need of the info.
I will take you awhile if ever to earn your rights to use adsense once lost. Caution.
I would email them and let them know to cover your back. http://www.google.com/support/adsense/b … t&rd=1
Thanks everyone, I don't know what the problem is, it just happened again. I think my mouse may be getting stuck. How fustrating... Anyway I just contacted google and let them know. I've been working so hard, the last thing I want is to get banned.

I just joined Hubpages, and I was wondering if what we do to generate earnings is simply go to a hubber's webpage (while signed out) and click on each others' google/ebay/amazon ads. I'll scratch your back...etc. Does this work?

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 some people are afraid to do this for fear of reprisal for being click happy...

Can it go against Google rules if they have deliberately done this thinking they are helping you? I am worried because I just had a comment posted saying "thumbs up and adsense."

I checked Adsense about 45 minutes ago and it said £1.24 (sterling) for the day so far. I just came in and refreshed the page and it says £0.79. What's happening?It's not important really because I'm on the HP ads, but I'm curious to know why the amount changes. I have seen it happen before.

I don't know if this is workable or not, it's just a suggestion.However I was just reading a thread about hubbers "rewarding" other hubbers by clicking their adverts. My suggestion: Since we cannot see Kontera adverts while logged in, could the same be applied to Adsense?Obviously there...

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 free coupon offer for Tide Pods but was afraid to click on it.Thanks,Creativelycc
