Does reading/reviewing your ad enabled hubs lead to invalid impressions in Google Adsense?
reading/reviewing means checking hub stats of each hub/questions every day.. OR editing Hubs OR checking out your profile etc..
I am not sure. However, I have noticed that when working on a hub that is not published there will be views next to it in the breakdown. I assume since I am signed on then they must know it is my account making the impressions.
It might give you some invalid impressions but that's why both adsense and hubpages say their earnings program isn't accurate immediately. It recognizes that you're always coming from the same IP address so when it calculates impressions at the end of the day and sees that there are several from that address it sort of ignores them and focuses on individual views, or views from the same location that are spread out over the day.
Or maybe there's something to do with cookies saved on your computer. I don't remember exactly.
I know it has the potential to give you slightly inaccurate readings but unless you're viewing the page hundreds of times a day it's not going to have a negative effect on you as the page owner. And earnings are calculated per thousand views so it's not really fraud if you end up viewing the same page 20 times while editing it.

Although I have enabled Kontera Ads on all my Hubs, I cannot see any Kontera ad on any of my hub. I visited my account page on Kontera's web site and everything is perfect according to my knowledge.
