So im sitting here waiting for a response - I had like 10 browser windows open and i click in one and all of a sudden im in a site "doh" i realize its a adsense link i just clicked - anyway I emailed them and gave them the url of the ad and asked them if they could credit the account.
I usually block google ads to my own IP address so i don't click on them but i had the blocking temporarily diabled.
I think it would be agreat feature if google could supply adsense publishers with either: A) an ignore IP pool - so ads would appear and be clickable but not "count" if they were clicked by an ip in your list. or B) A blocking cookie - that basically told adsense not to count the click
- im a fricken nervous wreck now - i dont want my account disabled for being a dumbass :( - it was a total accident - anyone ever report an accidental click?
I wouldn't worry too much over one click, especially if you've emailed them about it. Someone I know accidentally clicked one of the ads the first week they installed AS, the click was never charged to the advertiser and nothing further came of it. The key is to report right away as you did and there should be no problem.
