I was trying to get the link to one of my hubs via the link at the bottom of the page. As I did so an ad next to it said - interactive advertisement, as I clicked on my link (to get my tracker code in the URL) a dishwashing tablet advertiesment appeared on the screen
OK I know it sounds funny, I am laughing too - but have I clicked on my own adsense ad by mistake? I am worried as I am reaching the threshold for my first payout soon. Not laughing at this bit, I have been writing hubs for nine months to get this far.
Sorry if I sound stupid but there is no one I can ask about this.
2uesday, I don't know if it counts as clicking on your ad or not, but I just thought I would tell you that I did click on my own ad by accident (the cursor was near the ad but not right over it) and nothing happened at all. I wouldn't worry if it is only a one off
dont know what you clicked, but google does understand that mistakes happen so as long as you dont keep doing it you dont need to worry about getting banned or anything.
Thank you kephrira and Polly for your replies I feel a bit better after reading them.
I felt so stupid for letting it happen as I am always careful not to click ads.
I wanted to put a link to my blog but have given up for now as I am worried about repeating the mistake. The adsense ad was below the comments capsule so quite close to the link button.
- Oh I am just trying to make my self feel better about a silly mistake. Best to go do something easy - like hanging the washing out .
Thanks for your replies - it helped.
Not often prone to moments of panic - but had one there. The thing that was funny was the type of ad it was; I have no curiosity about dishwashing. Thanks again.
If u still want ur url copied then get another hubber to go to ur hub and they can copy it and then paste it in a private email to u. I will do it if you want, no problem. It is not allowed to put up links here on the forum so go to my page and contact me by email there.
Thank you viking305 it is kind of you to offer.
I was not very focused this morning and will try to do put the link in later. Thanks though for your offer of help, I do appreciate it.

Hi all. I have set up Amazon Affiliate program on hubpages and featured Amazon products on a number of my hubs. Looking at it after a while, the link-type report in the Amazon account shows that no one has clicked on the products so far. I wanted to know whether this actually works, so I clicked on...

I have always added my Products via a keyword search but I have been asked to add a couple of products via links instead. I am not sure whether my being in the UK makes a difference but should I be adding links from Amazon.com or from Amazon UK? I know that most of my traffic still...

I've used up all my 200 URL channels but want to track my recent hubs, so I went in and marked about 25 of the older channels and deactivated them. I just want to make sure that by deactivating them in my AdSense account, all that means is that I won't know if they are being clicked, right?...

I'm sure I'm not alone in this. When I open a page I do not want it to start talking to me or playing music unless I press play. I really hate those adverts that are like a TV advert and appear on the page, and start playing without being clicked. Especially if I have multiple tabs / windows open...

I know there must be a way to see which adds are getting clicked on but for the life of me I just can not see it. I am sure that it is probably right in front of me but I really need some help with this one.
