The image is a snip I took of an ad displayed on one of my hubs. Originally I became curious because of this thread 'Terrible Background Ads'. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/87959#post1882395
Is this a new feature?
When I clicked on ad choices it opened up a new browser to this page:
It seems you can opt out of a variety of companies using Evidon.
I clicked it Ad choices again (without clicking the ad) and then it brought me to a page called 'Fetchback'.
I'm a bit confused.
Are you clicking on ads on your own Hubs? Are you doing it repeatedly?
That's one of the ways to lose your Adsense account...
Evidon is the company behind Ghostery (that blocks ads) and is on mission to regulate ad delivery via opt-in format. Clicking on ad-choices button will take you to the opt-in form where you can opt-out of ads from the advertisers which are part of the evidon group.
By the way, if you're going to click on your own ad while loggin in to hubpages, do keep in mind that it is hubpages share and another point is that clicking on your own ad from same IP while logged out of hubpages will going to cost you adsense account.
I didn't click on the ad, just where it sais Adchoice on the upper right hand corner of where the ad is. It opened up another window but it had nothing related to the add itself, just Evidon.

Ok I went to Google and was able to get a reply since there were concerns that my clicking on Ad Choices was mistaken for clicking on the Ad's themselves.
Here is the link and the response I received.

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...

Something just occured to me, not only are we writers here but we are ALSO CONSUMERS. I see nothing wrong with clicking on a fellow hubbers google ad if it's something we are interested in. I am getting the feeling that some people are afraid to do this for fear of reprisal for being click happy...

Here's something for you guys to consider, and I am simply reiterating a comment I made on another post. You need organic traffic to your Hubs! Why? If you are using adsense, or any other monetization method on Hubpages, you will not, I repeat, you will NOT get credit for clicks on your ads from...

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...

Can I click on Ad Choices?Also, I notice there is a click on below my ads that says, "Ad Choices". Can I click on that? I would assume it is there to give me a choice of what my ads are.
