When a user clicks on an ad but they right click to open in new tab does that cost the advertiser as if the user would of left clicked.

I am new to all of this please handle me like that ;)


Yes the advertiser is charged if the ad is clicked or opened in a new tab either way the same URL is loading triggering the click. Though if you were to bookmark the ad or keep clicking or going back/forward Google recognizes this and the advertiser is not double charged
