I've been trying to get an answer to this to no avail... I was looking through referrals to a site and saw the following referral in the logs:

pagead2.googlesyndication.co...00x282&random=1 (clicking on the link goes nowhere)

I understand that this is a Google referral, but what I'm trying to figure out is what type of referral? Is this an AdWords referral, or an AdSense referral, or a referral from the Google-powered web search on the USA Today site...

Is this an AdWords referral, or an AdSense referral,

Yes. It would typically be someone clicking on your Adwords ad on an Adsense content site.
