Google and I have fallen out!!!
At the beginning of the year, Google accused me of clicking on my own ad's. How do I prove them wrong?
It's near impossible. I'll wait for other hubbers who were successful to comment..
You probably can't.
Unless it's a ton of lost revenue, I wouldn't bother with any legal response. Too much trouble, too little chance of success.
Check if there are strange clicks on your ads and if the answer is yes contact Google informing there are strange clicks.
But if they complaining that you are clicking your own ads, sadly, you are in trouble.
They track IP addresses clicks come from and they track many things to check click fraud.
In my point of view it is impossible to prove it.
that would be hard to do... you just have to rely on their good will and explain your situation.. maybe ask them why they accuse you of that? but AFAIK they don't give reasons when they accuse you
I didn't expect to hear of a solution guys. I've just sent another appeal to google, if it comes up a winner then the beer's on me!!!
You can't. They don't want to be proven wrong. I believe they are lying. I know of someone who conducted a click-bomb experiment and nothing happened. I believe it is a lie concocted by the company so you will blame other people or yourself when they steal the contents of your account and your labor.
Google just does this kind of thing right before their quarterly fiscal reports come out. This is how they make their "profits."
Search "adsense scam" here at hubpages or in a search engine and you will see the character of this company - whose real name is Doubleclick, Inc., headquartered in NYC, by the way. If you want to complain, try locating them!
Hey George, I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope they didn't completely boot you out of the Adsense program altogether...
Perhaps you can ask for a report on the URL the clicks originated from.
Perhaps someone else was using your computer and they might have clicked on your ads...
I hope you come out OK in the end here.
I think they would be able to show that the clicks came from your ip address. Maybe someone else in your family used your computer to click your ads. It could have been an accident - you thought you were clicking one place, the computer hiccuped, and you wound up clicking someplace else. That happens to me quite a bit, especially if the battery on my cordless mouse needs replacing.

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 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 don't see a problem with it as long as the ad interests them from a good quality...

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 low traffic hub. I thought that was really weird when I saw how much I had earned...

Here's something for you guys to consider, and I am simply reiterating a comment I made on another post. You need organic traffic to your Hubs! Why? If you are using adsense, or any other monetization method on Hubpages, you will not, I repeat, you will NOT get credit for clicks on your ads from...
