I actually am a fan of Roll Over Ads as they give me the choice whether I want to see the Ad or not - however, a couple of times as I am reading comments on my own Hubs, I've scrolled up and 'rolled over' an Ad.
This greatly concerns me as it can be seen as fraudulent clicking.
What are the consquences and can anything be done to stop me accidently rolling over Ads on my own hubs? (perhaps disabling Ads when I am logged in and viewing my own hub?)!
Thank you for posting about this. As I thought it was just me being clumsy as I went to edited a hub the other day and an Ad. started up. It is difficult to know how this will be seen if it happens frequently, but even the once worried me when it happened.
It's not just you. It's driving me nuts. I go to reply to comments and leave the page without closing it to go to another tab. All of a sudden one of the ad videos begins blaring at me and I don't even know where it's coming from and have to find the last hub I was on and close it. I wonder if this is Google's way of tricking us so it can close our accounts. I was beginning to wonder if this automatically starts playing even if we don't click, and if this hurts us with adsense.
I doubt a rollover counts as a click but would love it if staff could confirm?
I seem to remember reading somewhere that the ad clicks only log up after 15 seconds, maybe I am wrong, but if you click out quickly it shouldn't be a problem, I think we have all done this, especially on the ads at the bottom of the page, as its near the comment box.
Have you noticed the ads with the Google +1 in the bottom corner? I started noticing them on one of my websites the other day on a beanbag furniture company ad. I'm surprised that these types of ads are even being allowed because they're encouraging a click. I was actually a little nervous when I saw it.

First off, I reached 1/2 of my payout today, so that is very exciting! Thank you all for the advice so far, but I am in need of more. I am a little concerned, because I earned from two clicks this morning from a very low traffic hub. I thought that was really weird when I saw how much I had earned...

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."

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...

I have been writing for hubpages for 10 months now and never seemed to be betting many ad clicks. As soon as I would write a hub I would blog about it and advertise it on other forums I belong to. I realized that after I published a hub the ads would be for things like tatoos and...
