Is it allowed?
Can one hubber click the ads of the other? Just asking...Is it allowed or not...
I have clicked on ads before from other peoples hubs purely because they have appealed to me and I have hoped the hub writer has gained extra income from this gesture, I hope it is allowed but I don't constantly click ads for the sake of it or click on any of my own.

I found this where someone else had asked same question---
"Clicking on other people's ads is a big no,no and will likely result in getting banned from AdSense and HubPages."
Best explanation: from humagaia "You as a signed up member are a part of HP in the eyes of Google. By clicking an ad you are likely to be clicking an HP adsense ad 40% of the time (thereby not rewarding the writer but potentially HP themselves). If it is deemed that HP condones this their adsense account will be closed."

No, don't do that. It is against AdSense policy to click on AdSense ads with the sole intention to give yourself or another person "extra money". That is known as "click fraud" or "invalid clicks".
Absolutely not. Don't do it. You damn sure better not ask someone else to click yours.

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."

So, I've heard about click fraud, and I know not to click my own ads, but when it comes to friends and family, how broad does that go? Is there anyone in particular I should tell NOT to click the ads on my hubs?

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...

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...
