Google AdSense rules state that, for obvious reasons, you're not allowed to click on your own ads. But does anyone know if there's an "accidents happen" clause? Sooner or later, you will accidentally click on an ad. Would Google ban you for that?
No, an accidental click here and there won't cause alarms with Google. What they're guarding against is intentional, fraudulent clicks. If you click an ad from your home computer, you'll see the click register in your account, but the amount will be zero. Google knows your IP and cancels clicks coming from that computer.
The Adsense terms & conditions do state that they allow for 'accidental' clicks whilst editing your site/pages and they also allow impressions from where you are testing/previewing your pages. Nothing to worry about, although Adsense have stopped serving ads on one of my blogs because they claim the blog is against their terms & conditions... which it isn't!

I have absolutely no intention of ever doing so, but has anyone any idea what does count as click fraud? i.e. 1 click, 2 clicks or lots? I can imagine it isn't that difficult if you do adsense long enough to at some...
