|Cloaking Ads for Googlebot|

|Many of us do some form of cloaking, often there is simply no other way. |
For instance I cloak the text ads on my site to stop Google from running impression counter or from crawling them.
They're there for the content, not the ads, the ads are for the visitors.
Is that adsense ads you're talking about? don't they know themselves how many impressions they send?
If its other text ads - what type of impression counter can they run on YOUR site?

I run AdSense plus my own direct advertising, and it's my direct ads I was talking about.
If I let Googlebot crawl thru the ads, which are embedded in the page, it can run up the impression and click count.

> it can run up the impression and click count
This is what I'm asking about: how can they run YOUR click count on YOUR site

Oh, my, just re-read it and I think I understand.
"I run AdSense plus my own direct advertising".
If they have their own click count, they can run the direct ads count too. Gotcha.
