1. That's not how it works. You're jamming together Adwords and Adsense.
You do indeed bid for keywords through Google's Adwords service. This lets your ad show up on their search network or the content network. People
click on these ads, they go to your landing page, maybe you make a sale, and you get billed for their click.
Adsense, on the other hand, is the opposite of Adwords. When you, as a website publisher, put Google Adsense ads on your site, if your visitors click
on these ads, the advertiser gets billed for their click and that amount is split between you and Google.
Two separate things.
You do not get paid just for having Google ads on your site. If no one clicks, you get no money.
2. I checked out your site and this is one of the things I found right below a block of Adsense ads...
"...what I'm going to do seems pretty blatant but click on any of these ads
then left click and view source."
That, my friend, is very much a blatant violation of Google's terms of service regarding Adsense. You cannot ask your visitors to click on any of
Google's ads. You can and will be banned from the Adsense program if they catch you. And, if you have any competitors who see this...you can almost
guarantee they will rat you out.
3. This post, which I predict will be deleted, is an outright piece of spam. It has nothing to do with any real or imagined conspiracy. It's an ad
for your made-for-Adsense website.
4. (And most insignificantly) You can't left-click to view source...you have to right-click to do that.
