Clicking on Ads

    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?

      No!   Instead of satisfying your itch, you will get banned by google adsense.  Please don't do this.

    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.

    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.
