    I would be very careful about clicking on another Hubbers ads.  Adsense take click fraud very seriously and you could lose a Hubber their Adsense account. There is also a remote chance if you use referral trackers a lot that you could be clicking on one of your own ads.

    Also look at it from an advertisers perspective - they are paying for that click when you have no intention of buying their product or services. How would you like it if you were them?

    As mentioned above it can be dangerous for their and your adsense account.

    A better way to 'reward' them would be to make a link back to their hub - that will have a much longer lasting effect than a few cents in their adsense account.

    I've never clicked on a Google ad on HubPages. Something just tells me it doesn't work that way, otherwise we'd all be getting together to make one another rich.

    Yeah it's evil and it defeats the purpose of adwords and adsense aswell as it is against the policies of Google adsense.

    Ads are there to be clicked by people interested in a particular subject, if you are clicking the ads willy nilly, then it is not a qualified lead!

    I am not so sure on it but as long as you click it for the ads (example interesting etc), then at least you know you are not over doing it.

    However, if can, try avoid over doing.....

    All good advice on here, never fraudulently click ads. 

    However if you are browsing hubs (Of someone you did not refer) and find something interesting in an advertisement, then it is okay to click on those from time to time!
