Probably a newbie question that has been covered before (tried sitesearch)but can i tell from my logfiles which site the clickthrough is coming from for content (adsense) sites?

You might be able to access the history of your visitor's browser using javascript. I'm not sure of the specifics at the moment, but do a few searches. I haven't used much JS in the last year and have lost my instruction book. :-(

Wow I sure hope not, perhaps you could fetch the referer but I would assume the referrer would be google's iframe page.

If you could fetch the user's history that would be a major privacy issue.

My bad...

After a little more research, it looks like I had some overly-ambitious views of history.back() and
history.go(). I don't think it can be done...at least that way.

Thinking about it some more, I'd imagine google doesn't want us to know. They want people to use their system. If we knew who was providing us traffic, we could possibly set up more profitable relationships and bypass adwords/adsense completely.

I can see them in my logs? Am I special?

just look at the logs and search for googleadsyndication entries. The URL of adsense sites is in there (import in excel and sort on the right field).

If you have good stats or log software, just check the refferring pages. You will have to parse-out the url for the site it came from, just read the url.

O.K.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll give them a try.
