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.....
OMG i wasn't at all aware of these facts,thnx God i asked you.
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!

First problem seems to be that I have no adsense ads on this hub in a couple of days Second problem that is bugging me is that I got what seemed to be some spam comment that I denied that went along the lines of "thanks for the ads" from a hubber I didn't recognize (unfortunately I hit...

Something just occured to me, not only are we writers here but we are ALSO CONSUMERS. I see nothing wrong with clicking on a fellow hubbers google ad if it's something we are interested in. I am getting the feeling that some people are afraid to do this for fear of reprisal for being click happy...

I got into an interesting discussion on another thread, and thought it would make a good thread itself. The question of the day is how do you feel about other hubbers clicking on an ad in your hubs?Personally I really don't see a problem with it as long as the ad interests them from a good quality...

First off, I reached 1/2 of my payout today, so that is very exciting! Thank you all for the advice so far, but I am in need of more. I am a little concerned, because I earned from two clicks this morning from a very low traffic hub. I thought that was really weird when I saw how much I had earned...

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 free coupon offer for Tide Pods but was afraid to click on it.Thanks,Creativelycc

Here's something for you guys to consider, and I am simply reiterating a comment I made on another post. You need organic traffic to your Hubs! Why? If you are using adsense, or any other monetization method on Hubpages, you will not, I repeat, you will NOT get credit for clicks on your ads from...
