      I have done that a couple of times,  Google just didnt verify payment is all , didnt count it, I would think if you did it consistanly then it would be a problem

    Oh I hope it will be ok Dorsi. I'm not really sure how it works with one click I am sure there will be some-one here soon to help out.

    Hey Dorsi,

    Don't worry about accidents. GOOGLE looks at continuous abuses of clicks. One instant where an accident happens and repeated offenses are obvious.

    But, a singular click from your own action will not get your account suspended.

    Just to let you know. smile

    Yep, you're FINE, Dorsi.

    It may have happened on Hubpages' share of the impressions, too, which wouldn't be so bad for you either.

    (I'm pretty well sure the only way people get suspended off of Hubpages is either by pissin' off picture gallery posters or violating Adsense ToS, anyway.  tongue)

    No worries, we've all done it.  I have.  Just don't do it again, that's all.

    Just keep an eye out for any black vans with tinted windows pulling up outside your house.

    If you see some scrawny nerds emerging swinging mice around thier heads and practicing with their keyboard nunchucks you know you are in trouble, how dare you accidentally click a google ad tongue

    I must admit to having clicked on one once.  It looked so interesting that I could not resist, and had clicked on it before I remembered I was on my own hub page.  OMG!  Oops...

      I've slip-clicked a few times. I hope they don't decide to drop the ball on me. It makes sense that they look for excessive clicks, not random. Everyone probably has at one time or another.
