So Can I Keep Making Money?
Simply put, yes! You can keep making money as long as people are clicking the ads on your page. The site Freeweblayouts.net that gives people MySpace templates makes about $100,000 a month
via AdSense clicks (from a Washington Post report)! So does that mean you can click on your own ads and it”ll count? Really now, is that even a question to ask? The obvious answer is no. There are tons of people who are caught by the law for click fraud. Essentially, these people, either themselves, or via automated programs, simulate browser clicks on ads. Obviously, for an
advertiser, these clicks are useless as they don’t result in conversions, and Google cracks down on the fraudulent parties. Google themselves give a disclaimer that you can’t click on your own ads.
There’s a bunch of stuff that you can’t do, that if done will lead to blacklisting. For example, you can’t mention any incentives on your site for clicking on the ads. You can’t put ads on sites with
pornographic content either. There have been a lot of controversies about Google and its
banning policies, with lots of sites being blacklisted from AdSense for seemingly no reason whatsoever, and others getting away scot-free.
