Hey there,

I got a couple of sites in french, and I'm having a problem to see the ads that are showing on my pages...

1) I live in switzerland for the moment
2) my main market is france
3) I also market for québec (french canada)

So, the thing is in when i check my site I see some ads but really not a lot of them because I,m in switzerland and I can't see the same ads that my visitors from france will get.

Is there any way I could log in as a france user to see my site with a france IP? Then I could see what ads are really showing to 80% of my traffic!

Thanks for any advices!

You'd need to find a French-hosted HTTP proxy through which you could view your site page.

There's a number of free online HTTP proxies out there which you might be able to use. A number of anonymous browser services could be used for this purpose, if you can find one that's hosted in France. I bet there is one or two, if you search for them.

Hey thanks for the *really* fast answer guys...

I was thinking about proxy surfing being the solution...

I managed to find a couple of IP adresses presented as proxies, but the don't have any way to actually surf from them ...

Ok I'm a little stupid regarding networking and things like that, so how do I connect to a proxy from my browser?

Thanks for the help!

It would be way easier to use the AdSense Preview Tool (https://www.google.com/support/adsense/bin/answer.py?answer=10005). No need to go through the hassle to find working proxys for every country.
