Prevent Accidental Clicks & Your Own Impressions on Adsense
Why you need to do this?
– Google knows everything – but, using an algorithm. If you click on your own ads – weather deliberately or accidentally – It’s going to get you banned. If you just clicked on your won ads, let Google know about it. To prevent this in the future, use one of the following methods. It is highly recommended that you use these even if you’re sure you won’t click on your own ads – because you’re constantly generating invalid page impressions on your Adsense.
Internet Explorer > Internet Options > Security > Custom Level > Look for Active Scripting > Disable
Solution – Use Method 2.
Method #2 (Preferred)
- Use a ad blocking plugin/add-on for your browser.
These have a large number of options and can be customized the way you want.
Mozilla Firefox – Adblock Plus
Internet Explorer – Simple Adblock
Google Chrome – Adblock Plus
When you set up new ads, or want to view ads on your site for some reason, just disable the plug-in temporarily and enable it back again.
Drawback – Some of the images and content on the Adsense site (google.com/adsense) may also be disables. You may even notice the Adsense logo missing.
Solution – Turn off the plugin while browsing google.com/adsense or just use another browser to set up ads.
