And no, you cannot click your own ads. As an advertiser I would consider that to be stealing from me.
Hope this helps...
If you could get FREE MONEY (warning lights should be going off in your brain right now) by CHEATING THE SYSTEM, there would be only one post in the adsense forum: a list of a auto-clicker.
I hate to sound mean, but how stupid are you.
You are normally not allowed to click your own ads. But Google allows that you double-click your ads. Double-click tells google that it is you who are clicking.
Google and publishers pays webmaster who doubleclick their own ads, because they believe we are a good segment to target.
You are NOT allowed to click on others's ads if they are displayed on your site and you are a publisher.
Payments hardly cross $1 per click and i personally have not seen a two digit dollar click as yet. Maimum i have seen is $2 approx.
BTW, how many of you have got $5 clicks, or $10 clicks or more? has anyone anything beyond that?
Answer is no Doug, you can't. It's against terms of service, even if you think there's a 100% chance you'll buy something.
Cool site, Doug, I like your free graphics, might use some of them for my art projects.
I noticed that you haven't put your Adsense up yet, good thing you checked here first to ask a couple questions.
Read back over the terms of service and if you look past some of the posts, you can find some good info here at webmasterworld.
