Referrer Question
Will adsense clicks show from joessite.com or google.com

 6:58 pm on Sep 2, 2004 (gmt 0)

As an advertiser, will clicks on my ads showing on somebody’s adsense powered page show that they came from joessite.com or from google.com.

My concern is home grown businesses in India (the current stereotype), making money by clicking on their own ads (ie our ads). We have been using adwords to advertise for years and are now taking a break to evaluate what the real value is.

I advertise using Adwords, and I can clearly see the referring website as part of the URL string in my reports.

It starts of with a google url and ends with the referring website URL (all in one string)

Look for 'googlesyndication.com' in your logs.
