At times when i see an adsense ads that i will like to know more about, i do right click and copy the link location.

Does Google count this as a click, and is that against the TOS?

Also, does Google count clicking on the ads preview tool as a valid clicks and is it also against the TOS?

none of what you said is against the TOS, don't worry.

But copying the target URL and pasting into the browser's location bar will register as a click - a fraudulent click at that because it won't show a referring page. If you're interested in seeing who's advertising on your site, just use the partial URL beneath each ad and type it into the location box.

Man, of course you can right click on any ad you want - they'll just BAN you!
Just kidding...

You need to remove all the Google tracking/redirecting part of the URL and leave only the advertiser URL for this to work. Otherwise, yes, I think it will register as a paid click.

I use the right click and copy to paste into a new browser to see landing pages not shown on the preview tool. But you DO have to remove all of the tracking code before and after the landing page url toward the end of the string that's copied, otherwise it counts as a click.

I'm not sure that the url displayed on the ads is necessarily the landing page, so you have to do the above (or use the preview tool) to check out the landing page.

I do make sure that i remove Google's tracking codes.

Doing this does not COST the advt. hence its VERY MUCH OK, IMHO.

always wondered about that. can we have a confirmation, that the displayed url is not necessarily the landing page? isn't this against adwords tos?
