    Alright guys, so I have a number of niche sites. One of them has been doing fairly well - $2 - $4 a day.

    I actually started it with a friend who knows nothing internet marketing and SEO (he invested money, I did the work). I just sent him the link to see how the site looks, I leave to take a piss, and come back and see that he said "I just made you a couple bucks".

    He clicked on 4 ads, and I made $3.00 (CTR is 100%). I'm tripping out right now.. what should I do (aside from never show him our sites again lmao)?

    Was it from your home computer or his?

    I suggest this as well. As a bonus if they were to ever review your AdSense account in the future they would see they were dealing with an honest duder. :D

    From his computer. I was mistaken btw, in my original post; it wasn't on my site that was earning recently. It was on a site that just hit page 1 yesterday. But yeah, it was from his computer, his home.

    I wouldn't suggest contacting adsense. The adsense team may decide you are too much of a liability and ban the account. If it was from your friends home computer I wouldn't worry about it at all. I have clicked multiple ads before from 1 site, sometimes on accident, sometimes on purpose. I have also done it to my own sites before and never got banned because of it.

    If adsense banned every account that had someone click multiple ads in 1 session, I think eventually every account would be banned.

    Thanks bro, you got a good point; guess I'm just a little paranoid. Turns out 3 of the clicks were his cousin in Ohio (I'm in California), and 1 was by himself (we live in the same city). Not sure if that makes the situation better or worse lol.
