Testing AdSense ads configuration in website

Any AdSense account can get banned if Google traces any forceful clicking on ads in your website. This includes your own views and clicks on ads while testing too.

The ads clicked during testing of your own ads can also lead your AdSense account to get banned. But to test it, you need to open your website multiple times to check whether your ads are coming successful on your site or not. Right? So we can tell Google that we are testing our website and we are not doing any ads click by following one strategy.

  1. Open Google Chrome and download Google Publisher Toolbar extension.
  2. Click on new icon appeared at right corner of your Chrome window.
  3. Enable Google AdSense and login to your AdSense account.
  4. Now whenever you visit your website from Chrome, your Impressions and clicks will not be considered by AdSense and your AdSense account will be safe.

This way, you can test your ads very easily without bothering about your own impressions to your own ads.
