I being asked to go through a customer's logfiles and
tell him which referrals from Google are from free search and which are from Adwords. He doesn't believe his clicks.
Any ideas?

The suggestion I got from ClickTracks was to put parameters on your URLs to make them easy to track. That is, something like [example.com...]

If he's not using ad tracking software or adding parameters to the landing page url, there is no way to tell the organic clicks from the AdWords clicks.
