Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
Besides using AdSense myself I also advertise using AdWords. I would like to see on what sites using AdSense are my AdWords ads being displayed on.
I tried looking at backwards links from the ads_by_google.html page on Google's site but that doesn't return any results.
From what I've seen (correct me if this isn't across the board) but if you advertise on AdWords, the referrer variable contains the url of the site that was displaying the AdSense advertisement.
Or is that not the case across the board? Do you have access to your raw log files so you can take a quick look?
I believe the referring URL shows up as the googlesyndication.com, so you might know if it is showing up through the syndication of Adwords, as opposed to the google.com referral, which the referring URL is when the adwords are shown on the actual Google searches (or whatever country specific Google site the user is on)
Funny thing is that Google tells nobody anything at all. Basically you have to trust them...and you know what, at the moment we all do.
Mind you if it was some other organisations I know, I don't think I would be too keen to trust them in that way!
Although you get quite few pages of people talking about the Adsense program.
As an adwords advertiser, I was a little dismayed by some of the ways people were presenting the ads: eg "Clicking on these ads will help offset our site costs" - not the way to get targeted traffic...

scangwinnett, I get some wonderful people email me on a regular basis offering me Espotting and Adwords advertisers email lists - im sure they will do Adsense publishers soon enough - Ill let you know! ;)
