What would I do? I accidentally clicked one of the ads when I was editing something. I did not clicked in intentionally.
Start praying....nah only joking it happens especially when screens freeze and all that jazz!
I remember when the Adsense program first came out years ago, I added it to my website and accidentally clicked on it, I almost had a heart attack. I was like... "NOOOoOOooOOooo!!!" *echo* *echo*
Then I asked around and they said it's ok just don't do it again. Accidents happen.
Adsense take this into account when checking your stats i read in one of the forums to send them an email explaining this and everything will be fine.
I've read here that if you accidentally click one of your own ads that google will understand. Just be careful and don't do it again.
Relax.. this should help:
No worries Just do not do it again! LOL I think this happens to a lot of people. There have been other threads on the topic and the general opinion seems to be that adsense can tell a mistake from click fraud I guess because a mistake happens once and fraud, well hmmm.........
Thanks for all your replies I feel relieved now.......This is the first time I accidentally clicked one of them....
If you click maybe once in 6 months as a genuine mistake they will understand, when you click 1000 times in 6 minutes then they may have a hissy fit, they really should make it more clear as to what click fraud actually is...
Wished I had a buck for every ad that was accidentally clicked! I could take that trip to Northern Queensland!
I just had my adsense deleted for some supicious activity and i have no idea why ? I never had clicks by known users that is telling others to clcik ads for pay or any thing to get more clicks ! The E mails after account disabled notice saidf two differnt pages had to be changed ??? Like yeah ok tell me after the fact ! I was jsut starting to earn good money broke past the $50 range getting lots of traffic for the 100 blogs i had wrote ! All i have to say about adsense now is phooey !
KONTERA is better YOU can actually tell visitors to muse over linked text for more information the advertuisers encourage it !
I'm so glad to read the info in this thread! Accidental click just happened to me in my profile page. Boy, did I have a heart attack or what!
So, do I need to go to Adsense and explain it was accidental, or will they just ignore this one click?
When I first joined HP, I accidentally clicked one of my ads. I didn't send an email, but I've been careful not to do it again.
If it were me, I'd put my head between my legs and kiss my ass goodbye!

I just accidentally clicked on an ad in my own hub! Will Google Adsense ban me for one click?!I'm a little bit freaked out right now. I accidentally clicked on an adsense link in my own hub. Would Google ban me for that one mistake? Have other Hubbers done this by accident and their accounts been...

I just clicked one of my own ads by accident. Has anyone ever done this? Do you know if I will get an instant ban or is there a degree of tolerance to this? Surely it happens occasionally to many people. Am a bit worried about it. Thanks.

I recently published a Hub last night and while reading it again this morning, I accidentally clicked on a banner ad that was at the bottom of it. I know that Adsense frowns upon clicking on your own ads, and this is honestly the first time that I've ever done that. I'm so worried that they'll...

I accidentally clicked on one of the ads on a Hub of my own tonight--did that one other time, more than a year ago (I think), and that time I went through the whole rigamarole of notifying Google what a bad boy am I. Since then, though, I seem to recall seeing a "post or three"...

I have adsense on my own websites and get a check from Google every month. I noticed today that one single click got me $3.08! Is there any way to find out what type of ad it was that got clicked, even the exact ad? I have many that get me over a buck per click. It seems to come down to what your...
