Google Publisher Toolbar extension for Chrome lets you inspect and block ads live on your site. The Google Publisher Toolbar adds an overlay to each of your Google ads, which provides some basic information about the ad, including its size, display URL and the advertiser name. Clicking on the overlay generates an Ad Details pop-up with more detailed data including a link to the ad’s landing page, allowing for safe clicks; summary reporting on the ad unit including performance metrics, such as clicks, RPM and estimated revenue; the buyer name and the display URL. From the Ad Details pop-up, you can also take action on an unwanted creative to block the ad, the URL or the ad network, or send feedback to Google:
