I hope that you will forgive me in the sense that I probably already know the answer to this question but when it comes to Google Adsense, who among us who use it can afford to take a chance of getting banned given the extremely strict policies!
My point is very simple:
Today I came across a Hub which featured a Google Ad which I desperately wanted to click on because it was of great interest to me. Clearly, it was not my Hub and to be perfectly honest I had never even heard of the Hub author before. Then I stopped...
Because I was signed in to Hub Pages, would Google perhaps have thought it was some sort of collaborative ploy and sanctioned both the other Hubber and me?
I know this is probably paranoia and I am sorry but is that not the way the Web is going?
Essentially, all I want to know is whether it is OK to click on another Hubber's featured ads that we may find of genuine interest while signed in to Hub Pages?
Thanks for any and all replies,
Actually I have wondered this too. Especially when I am reading a hub with something on it I am really keen on I have wondered whether it is safe to click as well.
I have refrained as I don't ever want to do anything that may jeopordise my adsense account.
I think it's a good habit to not click ads. Rather be safe than sorry.
Right click on the ad and do Copy Link Location (or whatever it is in your browser of choice).
Then paste the URL into a notepad document.
You'll see all the tracking stuff at the start, you should quite easily be able to figure out which bit is the URL destination.
Then copy and paste that into your browser address bar.
This is what a link looks like (I changed some details so as not to get anyone in trouble if someone ever clicks it)

EDIT: You'll have to mouse over and look at the address in the bottom left of your browser window. Even if it manages to fit. But you'll of course see it in notepad when you paste it.
And the bit after url= is the target URL:
That's the bit you'd visit without it being an Adsense ad.
Sometimes I just open another browser window and Google what the ad said that caught my attention and find it that way too.
I won't click on anyone's ads for that same fear.

Although I do not have many hubs I put them together the best I can.But now having a couple of thousand views combined, I am thinking I have to be doing something wrong. Recently I have become more involved / active on hubpages so I hope to see a change.Can anyone check out maybe one or two hubs...

I thought I might try to monetize a very old hub of mine, which is a short story (The Punky Wunkies). Currently, the keywords I am using are:"arts, Israel, short story, musicals, circumcision, freedom of religion, ATF, the first amendment, Branch Davidians, Establishment Clause, how to find...

I have looked and looked for this answer, and I'm pretty sure that the only thing I'm doing is making myself crazy.What I would like to know is this: when I (or anyone else) has signed up for the AdSense program, does Google decide which Hubs the ads will be on, or will they be on every Hub? Is...

I was kind of frustrated with my earning for a while. Since last Feb as a matter of fact. Last month I decided to block Google certified ads and my earnings a up 100 last month. I would be really interested to know how this works for other as well. I also blocked...

Let me apologize in advance for being dense, but: Is there a way to target which AdSense ads appear on Hubs? The ads that Google has been showing within my articles rarely match up with the subject I am writing about. I admit that I am still pretty new to the whole concept of...

Because of some technical problems with the Google AdSense API, since Thursday evening you can not associate or create a new Google AdSense account through the HubPages Affiliate Settings Page. If you try, the error you see will say an internal error occurred, which indicates a problem in...
