About AdSense

What is AdSense?

AdSense is a simple way to earn money by displaying ads next to your online content. With AdSense, you can show relevant and engaging ads to your site visitors and even customize the look and feel of ads to match your site.

How does AdSense differ from other ad networks?

The AdSense Program differs in that it delivers ads served by Google Ads to your site. Google then pays you for the ads displayed on your site based on user clicks on ads or on ad impressions, depending on the type of ad. AdSense gives you instant and automatic access to a huge source of advertiser demand, which means competition for your ad spaces, more relevant ads, and more ad spaces filled.

Do I have to choose which ads to show on my site?

No. AdSense automatically serves ads on your site that are targeted to your content or audience. Learn how Google targets ads to your site.

Who decides which ads to show on my site?

AdSense uses an ad auction to automatically select the ads that will appear on your pages. The highest paying ads will show on your site.

Can I view the ads on my site?

Yes. When you've got your ads up and running, you'll be able to view them on your site. An important thing to remember though, is not to click on your own ads. Clicking your own ads, for any reason, is not permitted by the AdSense Program policies.

If I view an ad on my site that I don't like, can I remove it?

Yes. The Brand safety page in your AdSense account lets you review individual ads and choose whether to let them show on your pages. Check out our guide to allowing and blocking ads on your site.


Do I have to pay to use AdSense?

You can join AdSense with no upfront costs. Once your ads start running, you’ll typically receive approximately 68% of the ad revenue, while Google AdSense retains 32%. Learn more about our revenue share structure.

Does AdSense have policies for participation that I must adhere to?

Publishers who choose to use the AdSense service are required to adhere to the Program policies. If you fail to comply with these policies, we may disable your AdSense account. In many cases, we prefer to work with publishers to achieve policy compliance; however, we reserve the right to not display ads on sites that violate these policies, to disable ad serving on pages that violate these policies, to withhold payment, or to close offending accounts.

Please note that we may change our policies at any time, and pursuant to our Terms and Conditions, it is your responsibility to keep up to date with and adhere to the Program policies.

How do you enforce the Program policies?

We actively monitor AdSense publishers to check for continued compliance with our Program policies. If we find publishers who do not comply with our policies or Terms and Conditions, we may suspend or terminate the account.
