Ummmmmmmm.... I know perfectly well you are not supposed to click on your own ads on your hubs....
I do hope there are allowances for accidents! I do not even know for sure if I actually clicked on an ad by accident, or if it was one of those that is a "mouse-over pop-up" type.
In any case, I was trying to get to the bottom of my page to submit a reply to a comment, and all of a sudden this video ad was playing!!! I closed it quickly, but it did come up.
Now what??? Will Google ban me from my account????
Accident happen. Don't worry about it. Google can tell the difference between accidents and fraud.
system allows for a mistake, people have done it before.
Just don't do it again in the near future or the system will balk at you
No Miss !!! a Google hit man will come to your house and wipe out you, your family and all your friends and eat your children !! You bad MsLizzy you !
I do believe it takes a few clicks to light the fuse or the system would be pretty unworkeable
I am a little pee-d off right now as I am apparently making what appears to be a really good offer for some flight tickets on one of my sites - and I can't find it anywhere else to click through to either find out about it or even buy ! and I must make the trip one way or other ! I suppose a little searching will find someone else making the same offer, but the temptation to just click through is almost overwhelming
Hmmm...I wonder if you hover,or RIGHT click, so the ad doesn't open, if the URL will become visible???? Or is that a violation, too?
Sheesh! I suppose it's also against the rules to click on OTHER hubbers' ads????? Or you could get one of us to click on it for you.. LOL
Right..nevermind... Don't want those hit-men showing up!
I know the feeling.. I have initially done it once, by accident and panicked

Last month my click through ratio was <snipped>, but now this month it has dramatically reduced to <snipped>. This is horrible and I have the same amount of traffic similar anyway as last month. It looks as though I will have to produce 1000 hubs if my ctr is going to crap...

Hi MickiIf you've noticed I've not written any hubs recently, I'm on my vacations from University and thought of doing a 30 hubs in 30 days challenge. Rather, I've gone for a 30 Wizzley articles in 30 days - for a good reason: Their amazon Capsules are way better formatted - users feel like...

I've been on Adsense since the 20th and have about 77 hub views (for all 8 of my hubs) and one click-through. Am I headed in the right direction? It's been two days now...what was your first week or so like?I know that some folks say that it takes months for them to see substantial earnings. I'd be...

This is not a How-To question, but rather a sort of informal survey.1 - How do you yourself navigate on [EDIT: "away from"] web pages you read? Do you click off the page through an ad; do you use the back button; or do you click through a link?I myself never click through ads. ...

I have just over 500 Google Ad imprints this month but no click through. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?
