Google AdSense is a service for managing Google advertising. The program is designed for website publishers who want to display a specific text, video or image advertising on pages of their website and make money when site visitors see or click on ads.
How Google Adsense works
Ads are controlled and managed by Google and web publishers should only create an AdSense account and copy and paste the code provided to display the ads. Revenue from the use of AdSense is generated based on clicks or impressions of Google Ads ads. Becoming a verified website editor in Google’s AdSense program is totally free.
Google Adsense Programs
Google currently offers a number of different AdSense programs, depending on the type of content you are going to place the ads on (for example, the website or RSS). Some of the most common programs include:
- AdSense for content: Displays ads on a web page.
- AdSense for search: Displays ads in search results on a website.
- AdSense for mobile: Shows ads on a mobile site.
- AdSense for feeds: Shows ads in RSS feeds.
- AdSense for domains: Displays ads on unused domains.
AdSense programs are also available to qualified developers and publishers, who can use AdSense to drive revenue in iPhone apps, video, or web browser games. Google currently offers the following AdSense programs for qualified publishers:
- AdSense for mobile apps: Get financial benefits from Android and iPhone apps.
- AdSense for TV: Get financial benefits from a TV inventory.
- AdSense for video: Monetize online video content.
- AdSense for Gaming: Getting Financial Benefits from Browser-Based Games
Google’s algorithms are designed to interpret context in such a way that irrelevant results are discarded and only those most likely to produce revenue are delivered. Google reviews ads using language filters and professional linguists to prevent the use of inappropriate text or content and to ensure that all material conforms to a professional editorial context and ethical standards.
