    This might be quite funny but i hope you guys will give a sincere response.... As a Google publisher, something i do search for information online, through Google or other search engine, there is something i used to do for website that gives me the information i need, I do pay them! I pay then by clicking on a ads on their website... just once and am off their page. Have you ever do such thing? Considering the fact that you know clicking will earn them money!

      If you have an Adsense account, you know very well this goes totally against the Adsense ToS.

      If you are not interested in what the ads are promoting, then clicking on them is fraud, pure and simple.

      You are endangering the Adsense accounts of the web sites you "help" in this way, and possibly endangering your own account as well.

      I'm sure there are ways to pick up strange patterns of ad clicking coming from one computer, and I'm sure G knows them.

      No - unless the Ad actually interests me then I will never click it. It's unlikely that you'll get caught but not worth it - it is also fraud and something I am truly against. If you're interested in paying the owner of the site, contact them directly and offer them a payment via Paypal.

      Google adsense know EXACTLY where each and every click comes from, so as long as your TOS publisher rights are not being abused there should not be any problem.
      Publishers may not ask others to click their ads or use deceptive implementation methods to obtain clicks. This includes, but is not limited to, offering compensation to users for viewing ads or performing searches, promising to raise money for third parties for such behavior or placing images next to individual ads.

      Clicks on Google ads must result from genuine user interest. Any method that artificially generates clicks or impressions on your Google ads is strictly prohibited. These prohibited methods include, but are not limited to, repeated manual clicks or impressions, automated click and impression generating tools and the use of robots or deceptive software. Please note that clicking your own ads for any reason is prohibited.

      It is best to read TOS. There are those who pay for ads. They pay for every click. It is Internet etiquette to not click on a paid ad, or paid site to get number one positiions in search engines unless you are truly interested in what the ad claims to offer.  Clicking paid ads does not help anybody.

      Violate rules, Google will shut your account down.

    I believe that this is a great way to get banned forever, absolutely against the TOS and you are putting yourself into trouble by saying this on a public forum IMHO

    No because a non-organic click pattern can lose them their adsense account.  I click ads only when seriously interested in the product.

    Do you know that advertisers were charged for those clicks? So you didn't do them a favour.

    And do you know that non-converting clicks contribute to the decrease in average CPC? So you didn't do a favour to those favourite publishers of yours
