What Should I Do If I (Accidently) Click On My Own Ads?

Adsense's own page says that "they understand the occasionally click
by the publisher" - those won't be counted as valid clicks but like
their site says they understand the occassional "ooops".

But going to their site and sending them an email telling them that
you accidently clicked on your own ads will be in your best interestes
- and will make you look good by reporting it.

Just click here to find out what adsense has to say about "invalid" clicks. Here is a link to their blog post Accidents Happen which also talks about what you should do if you accidently click on your own adsense ads.

Just make sure that you don't do it again

But with me there is a unique case,

God knows that I didnt make any click at my ads rather I visits my site after nearly after a month when I heard this news...

In a period of nearly two year, I earn nearly $350 and get paid two time only but while third time comes near then I got message from google that my account is diabled do two invalid clicks...
I didn't understand till now that what happend with me...

There is not any huge amount of clicks or there is not any unpredictable traffic to my sites as well even then Google says that there are some invalid clicks...

I send them my website stats as well but nothing happend...

even then I get banned and my account is disabled...

It's really hard to tell you what to do next. Once Adsense bans / disables your account it is very hard to get your account back - although some people - a few - have successfully managed to get their Adsense accounts back. The best that I can tell you is that if you really feel that your account was disabled for the wrong reason(s) then the best that I can advise you is to keep trying to get your adsense account back.
