What is Google Adsense?

how adsense works

According To Wikipedia: Google AdSense is a program run by Google that allows publishers in the Google Network of content sites to serve automatic text, image, video, or interactive media advertisements, that are targeted to site content and audience. These advertisements are administered, sorted, and maintained by Google. 

According to my own understanding:  Google Adsense is a program created by Google that enables bloggers, webmasters and internet entrepreneur to make money from their blog and websites.

To make money from Applications and Games is using Admob, Which is also by Google.


How Google Adsense Works


Google adsense as I said is a pay per click program created by Google, that fetch money for the blogger as people are clicking the ads on their blog.

As you put the ads on your blog, there are many types of ads, we have the page-level ads, Link ads, banners and others, I will give you the types of ads.

So as people are clicking the ads depending on the countries because some countries click like Germany, USA and Uk pay more than others country's own like Nigeria.

As people are clicking the ads Google will be calculating things like the Pageviews, if you are having low page views and a lot of clicks, Google can disable your adsense or your domain name, And after banning that is the end of making money with adsense, you can go for others way of making money from blogging.

After people clicked the google adsense, it takes some minutes for them to show it on your google adsense earning account.

Importance Of Google Adsense

As I have to tell you how the Google Adsense works at the top, so now these are the importance:

  • It is a program by Google and it is always been recommended to all new bloggers.

Google Adsense Monetization types

how adsense works


The content-based advertisements can be targeted for users with certain interest or contexts. The targeting can be CPC (“per click”) or CPM (per impression) based, the only significant difference in CPC and CPM is that with CPC targeting, earnings are based on clicks while CPM earnings recently are actually based not just per views/impression but on a larger scale, per thousand impressions, therefore driving it from the market, which makes CPC ads more common. There are various ad sizes available for content ads. The ads can be simple text, image, animated image, flash video, video, or rich media ads. At most ad sizes, users can change whether to show both text and multimedia ads or just one of them. As of November 2012, a grey arrow appears beneath AdSense text ads for easier identification. Google made a policy update regarding the number of ads per page, the three ads per page limit has been removed.

Page Level Ads

Page-level ads are a family of ad formats that offer a new and innovative way for you to monetize your content. With this, you place the same piece of ad code once on each page that you want to show the name.

You can make ads stick on the screen of your web pages.

AdSense for search allows the publisher to display ads relating to search terms on their site and receive 51% of the revenue generated from those ads.   AdSense custom search ads can be displayed either alongside the results from an AdSense Custom Search Engine or alongside internal search results through the use of Custom Search Ads. Custom Search Ads are only available to “white-listed” publishers. Although the revenue share from AdSense for Search (51%) is lower than from AdSense for Content (68%) higher returns can be achieved due to the potential for higher Click Through Rates.


AdSense for video allows publishers with video content (e.g., video hosting websites) to generate revenue using ad placements from Google’s extensive advertising network. The publisher is able to decide what type of ads are shown with their video inventory. Formats available include linear video ads (pre-roll or post-roll), overlay ads that display AdSense text and display ads over the video content, and the TrueView format.  Publishers can also display companion ads – display ads that run alongside video content outside the player. AdSense for video is for publishers running video content within a player and not for YouTube publishers.

Link units

Link units are closely targeted to the interests of your users. Because users directly interact with the ad unit, they may be more interested in the ads they eventually see.

AdSense publishers are paid for clicks on the ads that are linked from link unit topics, not for clicks on the initial topics themselves. The ads on the linked page are pay-per-click Google ads similar to those shown in regular AdSense ad units.

So with that guys, I hope I have explained Google Adsense monetization and you can now use this medium to start generating income from your website traffic.

Google Adsense Based On Countries

Yop,  Google adsense is been classified/grouped into countries, we have Nigeria Adsense, UK Adsense, USA Adsense, Indian Adsense And Others.
