Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Let me see if I'm understanding you -- You have a website which contains Adsense ads (from your Adsense account). You setup an Adsense account for your wife, and you're not placing her account ads (with her publisher ID) on the same site?
Am I right that YOU clicked? Then most likely Amazon detected that those clicks came from the same location as the account owner and automatically treated them as invalid clicks.
Do NOT do that again. AdSense will ban you for clicking on your own ads, and for all intents and purposes that is what you did. Since it was only five times, you may be OK, but you may have already done the damage and the banning just hasn't arrived yet.
Read the AdSense rules before you do something else you shouldn't.
I delete my website name from the board....thanks
you might get into trouble with google too -- because it sounds like people will be encouraged to click on each others ads. and even though that wouldn't directly affect you (because it's someone else's ID that is being clicked) google will recognise that it's always your site which is serving the ads. you might get blacklisted through association.
All I wanted to do was bring traffic to my website by allowing people with adsense accounts to put there ads on their profiles
Personally I would never put my Adsense code on another site I didn't have control of because I wouldn't want to risk losing my Adsense account. I assume I'm not the only one who feels this way.
I don't know if the adsense revenue sharing business model was qneal's biggest concern here.
The biggest concern is that he was clicking his wife's ads 5 times to "test" them. My biggest suggestion to qneal would be take some time today to stop and (re)read the Adsense Terms of Service and Guidelines to make sure you fully understand what you're agreeing to when you use the service.
You may want to contact Google to let them know about your clicking as well. If you have 2 adsense accounts in the same houseshold, this may throw up red flags on their end as well.
