    I was just answering a comment on a hub, and when I clicked the comment box, the page shifted, and I clicked on an ad instead! What do I do? Should I contact Google?? Thanks in advance!

      Don't worry about it...just don't make a habit of doing it smile

      I've done that before.

    It happened to me too.  My page turned blue and so I clicked on the page to get it back to normal, and just so happened that I clicked where an ad was.  Omg, was I ever petrified!  It's like I got electrocuted or something. lol  That was a few weeks ago, so far I still have my adsense.  Phew!

    Thanks, pals! That makes the third time in two years that I've accidentally clicked an ad, and two of those were on HP.

    I think you will find that most of us have done that.  I've clicked an ad, thinking it was another hub.  I backed out before it even loaded and it never showed up in adsense or analytics.

    I even had my cat click one once by stepping on the mouse.  That one loaded before I figured out what had happened, but never caused a problem, either. 

    Google knows that these things will happen - if repeats are few and far between they don't seem to take offense.

    I even had a hubber announce they would help me make payout and I immediately got several clicks from an obscure hub that no one ever visits.  I notified google about that one, but the clicks went through anyway, for several dollars, and they never said anything.  Couldn't believe that anyone would actually do that, but it happened.

    Go sit in the corner habee!  NOW! lol smile  I've done it too....and panicked.  I'm sure Google can tell the difference between an "oooops" and something that happens all the time.

    The cat licked the mouse tongue love it--oh, you said clicked. Now, back in my day, they used to say the dog ate their homework. wink

      Maybe I should give him free rein around the computer; he could produce his own share of the household income. Buy his own catfood and litter! lol
