PHP adsense session checker

Hello, I am not that new webmasterworld, but this is my first post. I have read a lot about adsense cookies and how they are actually session.

I am trying to make a php code so if some does click on my google adsense ad when they go to the next page on my site, it will display a smily face in the upper left corner or a thank you. I am not sure whether it is allowed by adsense TOS but I want to try it.

I have seen this done a page before when I clicked an ad, I went back to their page and the next page I went to on there site displayed a thank you in the top corner?

I have tried figuring out how to do this but the problem is I don't know how to check if they have the google adsense cookie? Maybe someone could help me out. I tried using a session checker and cookie checker but I didn't know the name of the adsense cookie?

Am I approaching this solution with a wrong method? Do you have to check for a certain part of a cookie or something? If so could someone help me out?

Here is what I was trying to do:

if (!empty($_COOKIE['Conversion'])) {
echo "Thank You!";

If someone could correct that I would be happy, thanks!

Maybe it's not a cookie, but a customized landing page used for tracking hits from a particular ad.

The next time you see the "thank you", check out the source code of the page. Maybe it's some type of javascript.

Good luck!

LOL, nice idea, would be cool to have something like that on my site too.
Unfortunatly i'm quite sure it's against the TOS, because that's somewhat "encouraging" to click again.

I checked and there is no javascript code. So it must be a cookie or session of some sort. If anyone has any idea I would appreciate it.
