Have you accidentally or mistakenly clicked on your own AdSense advertisement? Have you clicked on your AdSense AD many times? See what to do and the confirmed or verified solution to fix that issue.
According to Google AdSense terms or conditions and policies , AdSense users are not permitted to click on their own advert, no matter the circumstances or situations but still yet, mistakes happens because an adage says “Man is above mistake“.
This is how I overcomed mine. Normally, I do check on my posts anytime I published an article. This has gotten over me to the extent that I do spend hours scrolling over my site: checking designs, setting SEO and checking grammatical errors.
So, on this day, I clicked on my ” LOGO BANNER” which will normally redirect me to my main homepage but not knowing that I’ve clicked my AdSense advert. When my sense came back to me, I immediately closed the browser, deleted all my Google activities, cleared the opera mini browser cache and force stopped it but that was not enough since Google knows my IP address. In fact, my heart beats faster than ever before and was in the mode to faint.
Then, I went to the internet and Google searched about it but came out with the most happiest and best answer from Google.
In Google post, it says:
“Although publishers are not permitted to click on their own ads for any reason, we do understand that accidental clicks may occur. We therefore don’t require that you contact us every time you click on your ads. Rest assured that your account is being properly credited for all clicks and impressions we consider to be valid.”
Now, this post means that if you accidentally or mistakenly clicked on your AdSense Advert, you don’t have to worry and there is no need to report the issue to Google.
Also be aware that mistakes or accidental clicks cannot happen all the time. If you excessively click on your AdSense AD, you will surely be banned which means, your AdSense account, YouTube video AdSense, domain, admob and any other monetization products that is owned by Google will be locked up from that email.
Wherever you want to know about an AD or know the URL, you can use Google Publisher tool to know the URL of your Ad because is a chrome extension, just tap on the overlay to know the URL after successful installed or better still, to prevent you from clicking your own AdSense advertisement, kindly use an AD blocking browser.
