Can we have an optional captcha before a click on the ad ?

Hello all !


I am overwhelmed with all the new features of adwords and analytics.

Was there created also a feature to display a captcha after a user clicks on an Ad to take him to the website only after he completes the captcha code ? A simple addition captcha from 2 numbers would be enough.

Why pay for a click if it is from a bot or a person who doesn't know how much 8+7 is ?


I want a new metric PPEC , pay per educated click, from people with money because they can at least count them, after learning addition in 2nd grade elementary school.

@ Adrain;

Google has no intent to put "burden"  on users  searching for products or services; Products should be "within reach" of a click;

So, Google developed an algorithm  for invalid clicks,  that refunds the advertisers for invalid clicks. 

Bots already know how to add numbers. If you use CAPTCHA, that should be an "advanced CAPTCHA" - and by doing that - I am sure you would agree- you practically "shutdowns" Adwords...Smiley Surprised
