I have clicked my own Ads what should I do?

First of you should make sure you carefully read and understand the Google Adsense Terms of Service and Google AdSense Program Policies

If you accidentally click on your own ads, don't panic. Google is very good in detecting invalid clicks.
If you are really worried, you can write an E-mail to and explain the situation.

This however only applies to accidental clicking.
If you clicked multiple times to increase your earnings you are jeopardizing your AdSense Account! DON'T do it again!

If you're not modifying the code, or trapping the clicks or changing the way ads are processed,
it should be all right to implement a click-counter script.

Do be careful not to change the ad code without realizing it, though.
