Don't Email Google When you Click on your AdSense Ads by Accident

May 25, 2007 • 7:52 am | comments (1) by | Filed Under Google AdSense

Yesterday, the Google AdSense blog said accidents happen and people click on their own ads. Why did Google tell us this? Well, they are kind of tired of AdSense publishers emailing them, that they accidently clicked on their ads.

Remember, we wrote about click-o-phobia? Happens all too often. Google said:

As most of you know, our program policies state that publishers are not permitted to click on their own ads for any reason. For this reason, we've received many emails from publishers letting us know that they've accidentally clicked on their own ads. If you're one of these publishers, we truly appreciate the efforts you've made to monitor your account and keep it in good standing. However, we do understand that an accidental click may occur from time to time, so there's no need to contact us each instance this occurs.

So relax, if you can.
