Clicking add

Is there away to find out who's clicking on your add. I feel these clicks are from people who are just trying to get you to spend money and not from people looking for your services.

Hi SlyRock,

 

About the only thing you can do is look through your web logs for AdWords clicks and see if you have a number from the same IP address.Look for the presence of a gclid value in the query string to identify the traffic.

 

Google is pretty good at catching this activity. You can add the invalid clicks column to the campaigns tab to see how many Google has detected. You are not charged for those.

 

Best of Luck!

HI,

 

There's no way to see who is clicking your ad. You can be sure though that the clicks are not from people trying to get you to spend money.

 

Using AdWords effectively is very complex and is not as simple as chosing a few keywords, creating an ad and seeing what happens.

 

I assume the reason you're asking is because you're not seieng any conversions from your advertising, is this correct?

Ryan.
