Can you order from a link on your own hub?
Since random advertisements are placed on our hubs, is it "legal" to order something from a link on your own hub? Just wondering.
I believe that if you click on adverts on your own hubs, you run a serious risk of Google kicking you off of Ad-sense. My advise is not to click on your own ads. If you see something you are interested in advertised, get to it via another method to be safe.
GF....For all the many things I do NOT know...I am 100% positive that we must NOT click on ads in our own hubs. Several people, who either did not realize this, or tried to get away with it (which is silly, of course) could no longer make ANY income on HP.....They weren't banned from writing, but made no $$......enough for you to know? Peace, girl
The above answers are correct about Google Adsense. Do not click on your own ads. Google is very particular about protecting their advertisers and will suspend your account for a variety of different things including clicking on your own ads.
I have a couple of my own sites with very profitable Adsense campaigns that Google had suspended and I hadn't clicked on one ad. The kicker is Google does not tell you what you did! After some considerable research and a lengthy appeal to Google, they reinstated my account. My conclusion is that they suspended my account due to multiple refreshing of pages. When I would edit pages or posts on my sites I was always refreshing the page to see how it looked. You actually get paid for impressions with Google Adsense and they consider multiple refreshes with your own browser as a violation of their policy.
As far as Amazon is concerned, you can order products from links in your hubs but you will not get any commission credit for the order.
Everything above is true, but if the ads are not placed by you/by that I mean you didn't apply for ad sense/ therefore you can click on them. It depends which ads are, yours or those of hubpages.

First off, I reached 1/2 of my payout today, so that is very exciting! Thank you all for the advice so far, but I am in need of more. I am a little concerned, because I earned from two clicks this morning from a very low traffic hub. I thought that was really weird when I saw how much I had earned...

Okay, I just signed up like two seconds ago, and I am seriously confused. I can figure it all out (I think for the most part) on my own, once I get reading into everything, but I have one major question that I can't seem to find an answer to anywhere.Do I have to have a google adsense account to...

I got into an interesting discussion on another thread, and thought it would make a good thread itself. The question of the day is how do you feel about other hubbers clicking on an ad in your hubs?Personally I really don't see a problem with it as long as the ad interests them from a good quality...
