Getting Started With Adsense

A very important element in the rapid adoption of AdSense is that it has been very easy for publishers to get ads on their site as quickly as possible. Integrating AdSense into your website takes just a few minutes and you may be on your way with one or more well-integrated AdSense ads. The first thing you need to do is navigate to and apply or log in with your existing account and password.

The following is a page presenting the terms and conditions of Google AdSense that you must accept to continue. You are presented with a report page that you can use to get a detailed report on how your AdSense ad is doing. This allows you to improve the content and layout of your site to maximize your AdSense earnings. At the top of your page, you also have a link to the configuration section where you can generate the code that will need to be pasted on your website in order to have AdSense banners on your page.

You can use AdSense for text (said ads), using a search box or with references. Your choice of these options depends on how users navigate your site. Finally, there is a "My Account" tab that allows you to set up your account details, payment and tax information. To add a text ad to your site, go back to the "AdSense Configuration" tab and click the "AdSense for Content" link. Make sure that cookies are enabled in your browser.

You can choose between ad units and link units. The former contain text and or images about a certain site for each unit, most with a detailed description, the latter contain only links to certain types. Of course, it’s a bit difficult to know which type you should use, so you should probably experiment with both for a while before you decide. You can also see an example of the unit’s appearance on the right of your page.

However, you can only use three ad units and one link unit on a given page. We think this is a step that Google takes for quality control. The next step is to choose your add format and colors. You can basically select any color palette you choose with Google offering some of its own if you don’t have the time or skill to create one. You can constantly see what the palette will look like using an example.

The one that works best in terms of appearance and revenue varies depending on the appearance, usability and content of a website. However, your ad formats are limited to eleven formats. There is a "Ad Formats" link that takes you to a page that allows you to see all of this even in action so you can decide which one best suits your site. Sometimes the most intrusive, does not work better, but again, this can vary from one website to another.

After finishing the customization, you can click "Continue" at the bottom of the page. You are now presented with a section titled "AdSense for Content". You can click anywhere in the text to display the JavaScript code required to run AdSense, which allows you to automatically select the text in the box. You can then copy and paste it directly into your pages. If you use dynamic pages, you should paste this code into your template to make sure it is displayed on any page of your website.

Some advertisers choose not to display Adsense on every page, and this is understandable. An example of this is a company that has adsense, may also have conditions that would inevitably provide legal resources that would likely be deemed inappropriate. What you need to do is get content on your page (provided you don’t already have it). Google AdSense crawlers will soon visit your site, making sure the ads displayed are relevant to your site’s content.

And you are done. For a simple page, it should indeed take a few minutes, which precisely makes AdSense the choice of so many people. Although it is fast, its mass appeal also makes it the best. By being the most popular, advertisers and publishers consider Adsense and Adwords as their first natural choice.
