    I am about to get rolling with adsense, however, I am a bit scared in regards of people using your IP checking your page.

    - Can you get banned if a friend of yours is at your place and checks your page and clicks on the ads?
    - What if you are renting a house, you transfer the internet to another person and this person access your page and clicks on the ads?
    - What about public IPs, say you log in with your adsense account from starfucks and then someone else clicks on the adverts, can that get you banned?

    Before anyone posts it:

    Theres a lot about Adsense, you wont figure it out all. Its not just about IP`s, you need to watch for cookies, search tags, referrer and a lot more.

    I think you're over thinking it man. I've used adsense for years staying 100% white hat and not had any problems at all. Just log in to your account from your own computer only and don't tell anyone you're doing adsense marketing, simple... I was a bit paranoid at first too but you'll be fine if you play by the rules

    being banned by adsense is totally random. I would not worry about it but my account was banned for no reason.

    Bans normally happen from consistent illegal clicks. If for example someone clicked on a bunch of links over time via known proxies or HMA-VPN etc. they will think you're trying to game the system to earn. It is against Google's TOS to click on your own ads, so make sure you don't click on them from your own PC/IP. You aren't going to be banned for a simple mistake, and you will often see clicks removed from your monthly earnings, as they think they're suspect/fake.

    I've never experienced a ban across several accounts in 4 years, but I just follow common sense rules and don't try and game them.

    The other thing to consider though is whether AdSense is the right way to go now. I know it seems the easiest route, but in terms of income, they're probably one of the lowest earning options. Good CPA/Amazon/Offers etc. that are targeted will nearly always generate more money - and keep you away from Google's prying eyes a little more.

    to me that you are looking to click on your own ads wihtout getting banned?

    To answer your questions,
    - tell your friend 'do not click on my ads' (once in a while accidentally clicking on your own ads wont get you banned, i have done this before specaliiy when you have 30+ sites )

    - if you are renting your house they are liable to get their own internet rite, then will get brand new modem with new IP(normally sticky

    Bottom line is if your account is old and you have a profession looking site you dont have to worry about it, i was like you when i first started....
