    Does anyone know how to find out the destination url of an adsense flash ad without clicking it. My music related site is being bombarded with flash ads relating to heart attacks!!!

    Thanks, Grant

    What browser are you on?

    if your on firefox and have adblock plus on firefox then there should be a block tab hanging off it.

    If not got ABP, you can find 'media' (ie flash embeds) on the page by going to Tools then click Page Info and you can see the url there.

    EDIT

    Ah wait, do you mean finding where the link would take you to ?

    If thats the case, just find the address of the advert (like I said above) and then open that address in a new window/tab and click the ad :)

    :) Thanks for that but there's no way I'm clicking the ad. How the f*ck do google expect you to block ads if you don't know the url!!!

    Then do what I said first to find the url? Then block that url :)

    I just use ABP and it puts a nice block image next to anything flash / java / whatever.
