I was just curious on this as I tried to find for the answer but failed.
I use three laptops (mine, my gf's and my sis's one) depending on which is available for me and all laptops are using the same wireless connection modem.
I would like to ask this question as my sister asked me this morning. What happens if she click on my ads if she is reading my article? (consider that I am not using the same laptop at that time)
Is this against the rule of Adsense? Sorry for asking but i was really wondering and I wouldn't want to get a ban or get any punishment for it.
Thank you for reading and thank you again!
Doing things like that will get you banned.
NEVER click on your own adverts, it is click fraud, and doing so will get you removed from adsense,and once you are banned you will not be ale to join up again for a long time (They track names, addresses, IP, MAC codes and bank details (from payment info) etc to ensure you cannot get re-instated.
If it is a repeated click from the same IP you be sent a warning and if that continues you will be burn. Don't encourage your friends to click on ads in your articles.
You have three laptops now buy two more wirless connection then click ads --then it make anysense. Because you are using different laptops but same internet connection in technical terms it has same IP address, so it seems it is spamming. Hope you understand now.
That still wouldn't work since Google would still see alot of clicks coming from one location, in the same IP range as the account holder. And even worse you would have to click a lot to make a dent in the cost of a second internet conneciton.
If it just happens once you probably won't get banned, but it's not something you want to happen multiple times. Google is pretty good at tracking this stuff, so if your sister clicks on more than a couple of your ads you'll probably get an email from Google telling you you're out. They understand that coincidences happen (your sister just happened to be reading a page you created and just happened to click on an ad on that page), but they don't happen repeatedly in the exact same way.
Great information. However this make me wonder if like in the case of cyber cafe or school computers. Understood what you guys mean thou
Sorry sounds a bit confusing but thank you all for telling me about it. Great help and thank you again!
It sounds like if you were on another computer such as school computers etc. that if you clicked on one of your own ads.
It would be quite easy for G to detect a fraudulent click, especially if you typed in the url on that external computer.
Adsense is too important to play around with. Put your sites under lock and key, do not tell your friends to click ads, or you will definitely be banned.
Very true and thanks terry.
What I can do now is tell my sis not to touch those ads and I guess it would be fine...
The main problem is I live at two different places and using 3 laptops (whichever is available) and I used all of them to write my hubs.
Guess that is a problem..lolz
I don't tell my family or friends about my websites for that reason. You should be actively be trying to avoid any possibility of getting banned by Google, rather than trying to outsmart them!
yes it is illegal but 1-2 clicks do not makes ur account banned if u clicks 3-4 times than action is done for banning your account
at starting time i click my ad but no action is done

Just had a thought about Adsense and my hubpages. I have 8 published hubs and let's say I have a 12% CTR (click thru rate). That's 1 click out of 8 views. What if 4 visitors out of the 8 had clicked on an ad. That would...

I was reading that Google will know if you clicked one of your ads from a different computer with a different IP address. For example, you go to work and go to one of your articles on your work computer and click an ad....

I've applied 3 times and I'm still not accepted. I really like hubpages and I don't want to switch to another platform. I put a ton of effort into my hubs and really hope someone can help me out. Any suggestions?...
