Is there any concept like hovering mouse for few seconds on a particular ad will be counted as a click in Google AdWords? Can anyone please help me on this?

Hi

Yes you are talking about lightbox ads ( Engagement ads)

Actually the cost will happen for engagement basis. If a user expand your ad, you will get charge for that. these ads are widely use for branding purposes. Please refer following link for more details.

Hi...Nisal L

Thanks for your kind reply...But actually I am talking about a simple text ad that will be shown in Google's SERP...and not about any rich media, video or any other Image ad.

A simple text ad gets triggered in SERP-> User See -> Just hovering the mouse on it for few seconds** -> a click will be counted or not?

** Time taken by the user while reading the creatives or just thinking to click or not

Hi Biswanath,

Nope. Only when user will click on ad - it will count a click. Hovering over or looking at it will not cost in Google Search Network Text Ads.

No, Biswanath, Google can't count any click if you are hovering the mouse of any text ads. It will happen only if you run engagement ads on Display Network.
