is there a way to set my adwords campaign, so that if anyone from within our corporate IP address clicks an AD it will not count?

we are going to try some testing with our ads and some custom tracking, but obviously dont want to click our own ads a bunch of times, and rack up our clicks.

i know, i want the world in a handbasket.

No, I don't think there is any IP exclusion features for adwords.

You could create a proxy server to strip google adword links from HTML for your corporate network.

I'd recommend the "Preview Search Results" tool...

[google.com...]

for multiple words, use KEYWORD1+KEYWORD2 (etc.)

The adtest=on parameter should keep you from being charged.

There is an IP exclusion feature in AdWords. But it will not help you in this situation b/c it will block the IP from even seeing the ad. (New Interface: Home -> Tools -> More Tools -> IP Exclusion)

If the ad preview tool doesn't work for you...

You could create some random terms (like company name + your name or some other random word) with a lower CPC bid (<$0.05) and "test" them. This way you won't rack up very much $ during your testing.

The Ad Preview Tool will not work because the destination URLs are stripped and the links not clickable.

I don't know if it'll fit within the testing you're doing, but you could try to find your ads in the 'Search Sponsored Links' function at [google.com...] ... You'll not be charged for the clicks. See [adwords.google.com...] for more details.
