    When reading other people Hubs, Should I click their adds or will Google get mad and boot me?

    No! You can't click ads on other people's hubs. Google won't ban you as it's not your own ads - but HubPages could ban you. It's against the rules as it could easily be abused. HubPages can't know if it's a genuine click because you're interested in the product or if it's people clicking each other's ads to increase their earnings. So it's NOT allowed (and easily checked).

      What if you want that ads badly because it is exactly what you are looking for? WHat would you do then?

      You would copy the URL and go there directly - not through a HubPages ad.

      From the horse's mouth, aka Admin Paul Edmondson: "Clicking on other people's ads is a big no,no and will likely result in getting banned from AdSense and HubPages."

    No, do not click other hubber's adds, as it is a violation on Hub Pages.  In His Love, Faith Reaper

    If the ad is truly and genuinely relevant to something you are interested in, you could click on the advertisement.  However the dangers in doing so include appearing to Google as a disingenious click (since they will be able to tell you are another HubPages site user) aka click fraud, or if that person is a referral of yours you could actually wind up clicking your own codes (which is a major AdSense violation) as they will appear on the referred user's Hubs for a random 10% of the time.

    Common wisdom is that if you are a registered user of the site who is also a Hub author making money from ads here that you just don't click on ads to be as safe as possible.
