    Banned From Google By Loading Own Page

    I was just reading over the Google terms and conditions. Couldn't find anything regarding this:

    Fastclick's terms say that if you surf your own pages you can be banned.

    Now that Google pays by the impression I am wondering if they do/will have something like that in place.

    I have to load a lot of my pages on a daily basis to administrate some of my sites. I would hate to be banned by Google.

    Does anybody know if there are any Google terms similar to Fastclick's?

    To prevent invalid ad impressions, Google uses the same sophisticated technology that we use to prevent invalid clicks. Although AdSense publishers are not permitted to click on their own cost-per-click ads, they are permitted to view the cost-per-thousand-impression (CPM) ads on their own websites without the risk of creating invalid ad impressions. We constantly monitor all click and impression activity for sites displaying Google ads to ensure that no invalid impressions are charged to our advertisers.

    If they simply place a blocking cookie on your computer, you would not need to worry about this anymore. Statcounter.com, which deals with counters, offers this feature on its site and it works like a charm.
