Recently there have been a lot of ads on the right side near the top that have a feature that pops up the ad in a new window in the center of the screen when you mouse over it. (Sometimes a "rollover to watch" video.)
I seem to be popping a lot of these up accidentally as I move the cursor from menu items on the top of the page to the side scroll bar. I know we are not supposed to casually click ads, so is this something that could cause a problem?
Hi Rochelle - I don't know the answer but I did this myself the other day where the advert opened a chest to reveal contents, although I definitely did NOT click on it.
If you ever do find out, can you post back here to let me know.
Roll overs do not count as clicks. I would still try to avoid them because they are annoying.
And then there was a different problem I had. At the bottom of one of my Hubs was an image of some kind of game. I didn't even think about it as an ad (which it was), but I was curious to see how the game was played. Immediately after clicking I realized my mistake, but it taught me a lesson. I won't try it again!
Now that you mention it, what is the best thing to do if you accidentally click an ad?
Nothing! You're not going to immediately lose your adsense account. Just don't make a habit.

I have been writing for hubpages for 10 months now and never seemed to be betting many ad clicks. As soon as I would write a hub I would blog about it and advertise it on other forums I belong to. I realized...
