Is it safe to allow advertisers on my blogspot?

I wish to set up a blog spot (yes me with my limited knowledge of computers; however I do love to write). In the process of setting up my blog page there was an offer to allow advertisers that would pay me. I understand that visitors to my blog would have to actually click on the advertisement/s and I would get paid per hit. The ads would be relevant to my blog's forum.

That all being said- my question is: How vulnerable does this make my computer to viruses (or the visitors' computers)?

Also, is a blog spot considered a web page?

I do appreciate your assistance.

Thank you.

Hi there and welcome to the site!

I don't know much about blogging and advertising since I don't do any of those but I've made some simple research for you.
I found a blog about advertising safety and the blogger presents some guidelines on how to be safe when it comes to accepting advertising offers.
It's short and easy to understand. And it comes from a fellow blogger.
Here it is http://www.adampelle...dvertising.html

Hope that helps!

Thank you for responding to both questions. Has adsense been reliable with payments? It was nice of you to share your blog.
