Google Publisher Toolbar discontinued from May 2020

Google wants to continue to simplify its tools and product offerings for AdSense users. They want to reduce as much complexity as possible and empower publishers to create fantastic content. Keeping up with this mission, they’ve decided to discontinue the Google Publisher Toolbar in May 2020.

Publishers will still be able to see data that was displayed with the Google Publisher Toolbar through the AdSense interface. As a replacement for the toolbar, Google recommends using the AdSense homepage reports for earnings info, the Ad review center for blocking of ads and reporting issues, and the homepage card for Google Analytics data.
