Not with the sole intention of making them money of course... but if we are interested? And since we are also hubpages users, can we or them get in trouble from adsense?
I discourage people from doing it because it's not worth the risk of how it MAY look to Google. Nothing advertised there is worth having my own account yanked or getting someone else's yanked.
So it against TOS to click another hubber's ad? Thought it was just your own.
Congrats on being elite!
If the other Hub user is one of your referrals, your ad codes will be running on their Hubs 10% of the time, so you run the risk of clicking on your own ads.
That danger and not wishing to appear as some other form of click fraud is where ad avoidance stems from.
It's also true to say that if it was encouraged to click other hubbers ads, you would get the forum cliques saying something like 'you click my ads and I'll click yours', which is fraud. Some company is paying for these ads hoping for sales. Why should they pay for this?
I liked the reasoning of relache too, that makes sense.
However, even if you have no referrals, it's better not to click anyone's ad, even if you are interested. Many ads give your their web address.It's safer to go straight there through whatever web browser you use.

Is it OK to click on ads of interest of other hubbers. I have never done that before because I'm afraid of being penalized by google since I have a google adsence account. Today I saw a great ad on someones hub for a...

Have you noticed that you must be signed in to click on a hubber's name to go to their hubs? This does not seem good to me; it keeps readers from spotting hubbers they may want to check out and the traffic we are after...

Can it go against Google rules if they have deliberately done this thinking they are helping you? I am worried because I just had a comment posted saying "thumbs up and adsense."
