  • Do not worry about it. If it is done by wrong intention like click bombing by others or by oneself. One need not worry about disapproval of Google AdSense. You can read this article about tips to keep your Google AdSense in approved status or in good standing. By reading the article, you'll come to know everything. If Google sees this small act as illegal, Google never finds a single approved account. But this does not mean that we should click on our own ads in our site for few times. Google is very smart in detecting the fraud clicks. So, never play with Google.

  • Here you are telling that you have not clicked Google Ads but there are two clicks found through your IP Address as per statcounter. Nothing to worry on this, sometime or rare it happens - make sure that your IP address is using or your system is using by others in your family or friend circle. Keep on track this activity plus statcounter similar case, if it continues you may then notify Google about it at relevant Google links.

    Rare or unknown or by incident if you click one or two ads then no issue, you can inform Google if you wish but do not click on your own pages Google ads often which can raise issue of your Adsense account for invalid clicks.
