Is it a Hubpages (or any other) to click on ads in other hubbers' articles?
I often see ads about products and services I'm interested in as I read the hubs written by others. I just haven't been sure if I can click these or even purchase from them. It seems that would be the point of the ads, but I don't want to violate any rules. Lady Guinevere seems to ask a question in a way that says you can't. Could anyone clarify?
Oops! I left out the important word "violation" in my question Is it a Hubpages violation...
My understanding is that if you're genuinely interested in getting more information about the ad or the company putting out the ad, there shouldn't be a problem. My understanding is that Google Ads has a policy about asking people to just click on the ads but the purpose of the ads really are to measure interest and connect potential customers with the services and products that are out there.
No, Hubbers cannot click on other Hubbers ads. Paul Deeds said that in a forum posting that it was a no no
I think one cannot click on another hubbers' ads nor on one's own.
It's a very bad idea. It's not only bad because Google could see it as hubbers 'helping each other out' but you could inadvertently click on one of your own ads on another user's hub. (Yep, your ads can sometimes appear on other users' hubs... think ref urls.)

I ask this because I honestly don't remember ever clicking on one. I read what I want from the page and when I am done click the back button to get back to the search, unless it's a blog. Then I sometimes click the links to their other posts. Maybe I'm not an average internet user? I see the word...

Hi! I know they told us not to have out family or friends click our ads just to help us make money. But my brother was reading one of my hubs and he was interested in the Amazon ad products. He was afraid to click them, but is that ok, if they are genuinely interested?Thanks,Sheila

I just read a Hub that said that the author was going to go to the freelance website and pay people to write articles for him that he would put on HubPages to make himself money from. That can't be okay with the HubPages site, is it? A couple of people commented, including an author that I have...

I know we are all here to make some money, but having 10 ads on a page slows down loading time to such an extent that readers just don't have the patience to wait for a page to load. So they click away without reading our pages. To prove my point that the very high number of ads is to...

Yesterday I noticed NONE of my hubs have AdSense ads on them any longer... where the ads were there is only a white block of space. I still have an active AdSense account, none of my hubs are flagged that the ads are disabled, they are all set to "high". I completed the pin process...
