I just joined Hubpages, and I was wondering if what we do to generate earnings is simply go to a hubber's webpage (while signed out) and click on each others' google/ebay/amazon ads. I'll scratch your back...etc. Does this work?
Please don't ever just click on a Google Ad if you truly are not interested. It raises the prices for the advertisers and if they aren't getting anything of value out of the ads, they'll stop advertising. Also, it is AGAINST Google's policy to do that.
This would make a lot of people rich and happy. And it will make Google Poor and Broke. This is against there rules and they will ban you. Don't just click on an ad unless it is in your interest. It lowers the amount of people advertising to lower the amount everyone gets from REAL people who click because they want to find out MORE like an ad should do. This will get your Google Goose Cooked. Google is like a Spartin:
Play by the Rules or Die.
I made this as a visual:
Even if you tell your friend offline to click your ads in bar or at phone and leave no trace of that request in internet, Google will eventually find out, and ban the adsense account.
They track based on IP and geographical position
Best traffic is from search engine
Just to clarify if you click a lot of ads on page the person's whose page it is may get banned if google thinks they had anything to do with it. If you ever see a lot of unusual clicks happening to your adsense report to google immediatly - being proactive may save your account -and you only get 1 adsense account
Click anything you like on ebay or amazon- it doesn't matter because those programs dont pay unless you bid and win
Wow, a lot of concerned replies. Thanks. Everybody relax! I'm not promoting a clicking frenzy. Just wondering.
Well, we kind of need to reply in a frenzied sort of way. If someone just stopped by and read the original post, they might think, "Oh, good idea." If they click on ads on someone else's hubs a whole bunch, that hubber could get in trouble (not necessarily the person doing it).
I guess we all a little bit paranoid from being banned from adsense...
Google often ban someone without clear reasons.
Adsense is fragile, handle it with care.
I do hope someday Yahoo and MSN release similar PPC program, with equal performance and availability.
Monopoly is bad.
Fierce competition between them is good for us.
Wow, i was amused reading the question, its an interesting thought. But had even more fun reading all the replies. All you experienced hubbers are so sweet and helpful. All the 'No dont or your account will be banned' replies goes to show how concerned you are about the fellow hubbers.
i second that motion rookie expert. the expert hubbers do take the time to help out the newbies. i therefore take this opportunity to honor all the experts who never tire of checking out the posts and give good sound advice to all who need them. more power!
APart from the possibility of getting banned, it's also unfair on the advertisers who won't see any real value from people clicking on their ads.

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...

Can it go against Google rules if they have deliberately done this thinking they are helping you? I am worried because I just had a comment posted saying "thumbs up and adsense."

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

I have been a bit puzzled about the way Google Adsense pays. There is reference to page impressions and clicks. I know that clicks get paid for at various rates, but I am not sure about impressions. Does the number of page impressions bring in any revenue. For example, some of my articles get...

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...
