Ads are one way to benefit from providing these types of services, but there's often also a self-promotional aspect. Offer a small but useful tool that many people link to, include a link back to your portfolio site(check; they almost all do), and some of that traffic will filter down to you, almost as a matter of fact("What else has this person built that ...

Yes it would be useful but Google will not tell you what ads were displayed when they were clicked on because then you could find out their payouts and advertisers CPC. Your best option is to setup AdSense to track each type of ad and it's location on your website. So you'll at least know which are the more profitable spaces on your website.

Although I totally agree with danlefree and his previous answer, there are some ways to make it more difficult for bots, at least for "not-so-clever" bots. 1 - Other than IP and User-Agent strings, you could try to set a cookie and display ads only if cookie is set.

I think you're going to find opinions supporting both sides on this situation.

No, Adsense does not send the content of every page to Google - that would be pretty inefficient and hog a lot of bandwidth - and in fact is not technically possible with cross-domain restrictions.

These so called tools that valuate your site, are junk sites to get traffic and ad impressions. Nothing more.

This guide from Google explains what you can't do: Hiding ad units at anytime (e.g., display:none), unless ...
