Does clicking on ads while reading other people's hubs count against you
I know that you can't click your own ads, but are they your own ads when you are reading other authors' hubs?
Hubpages staff has stated that you should not click on any adverts on Hubpages.
It's just too risky if you want to keep your Adsense account (and once you lose it, it's gone!)
If, for instance, you have clicked your own tracker, your own adverts show on 9-12% of any adverts on any hub you visit on the site. So it is possible to click your own adverts on other hubs.
How frustrating. Sometimes there are ads that I am interested in. I wonder if I used a browser that I was not logged into hubpages on if I would still see the ads and if that is still a nasty click.
Google tracks you by location and IP. Unless you're a hacker, I don't think you could avoid Google scruitiny. You can download ad block though.
I am little bit confused here. I don't think that your ad is displayed on any other hub. According to me my Ads are displayed only on my hubs. If I am wrong please correct me.
That is what I want to know... so I can't answer that. Hopefully we get a clear idea of the situation through this question!
This will give you a simple explanation of trackers and how your adverts are displayed: http://darkside.hubpages.com/hub/Referrals
I wouldn't click on any ad here. But, if you'll notice, MOST of them, in addition to the subject of the ad, also display their URL.
So, if you were interested in a given ad, I would think you'd be safe enough to open a new browsing tab, and type in that URL in the new window. That would in no way be a click-through...And if you really want to be safe, open a different browser as well to do this with.
As for "right-click/copy" then paste into new tab...I'm not sure if that would count as a 'click' or not...so safer just to re-type the addy in that new window.

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...

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...

If we turn off HubPages Ads and replace them with one Amazon Ad would our ability to earn decent money be compromised? Would we still earn from Adsense? Could someone please explain the different...

Something just occured to me, not only are we writers here but we are ALSO CONSUMERS. I see nothing wrong with clicking on a fellow hubbers google ad if it's something we are interested in. I am getting the feeling that...

I once received a warning that switching off ads on one of my pages was against TOS because the page was considered commercial. It was a long, deeply boring and rather technical effort concerning Synthetic Biology...

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...
