The majority of people never click ads. This has caused some sites to put ads in the background. This usually notable in the download buttons.

Have you ever clicked a download button only to end up in Amazon online shopping? I guess that was the worst experience ever. I personally only click such background ads.

I only click on ads that I know. But I know it is never safe to click on ads. It can lead you to any viruses, or malwares or any other things in the net. So better if you want to know something then you can always go to the site and not click on anything and be sorry.

I do. But it depends on what type of ad it is. Ads are also an important source of news in the internet, you can actualy land into an online work through an ad!

I have an experience as I became a member of clixsense just through finding their ad in another site. The online work and the minimum cashout on the ad enticed me to click on the ad. I have withdrawn from the site twice, although not much. Thanks to the invent of ads.

When I am visiting other people blogs and website, I sometimes click ads that are relevant to me. However, on my website, I never click my own ads.

If you are a blogger or webmaster you should never click ads on your website. If you click your own ads you might be banned by the advertiser.

Clicking ads even though it looks safe sometimes will still result to adwares and/or malwares so be careful. My PC was once infected with many adwares and malwares before because of ads thanks to my antivirus it was fixed.

I never knew that you can be banned when you cliclk on your own ads. I don't quite understand. Maybe somebody would help me to.

I don't click on ads. I'm not interested in them. I also heard that if we click on ads on purpose just to drive revenue to a site, Google will ban their Adsense account.

That's true. If you click your own ads or ask people to click ads, you will be banned by the advertiser.
