Is Google AdSense worth it_

Do you want to know if Google AdSense is worth it? This article shows you why it is and even offers some alternatives if you disagree. Let’s jump in!

AdSense is a Google owned ad network that serves millions of publishers. It’s often a publisher’s first choice ad network and one of the most popular ad networks in the ad industry.

Publishers sign up to AdSense to access Google’s extensive pool of advertisers and monetize their traffic with display ads. After joining AdSense, publishers need to add a few lines of code to start displaying ads on their websites and earn ad revenue.

AdSense gives publishers complete control over the type of ads they want to show, access to different ad types and ad features. Publishers can access advanced features such as ad testing and auto ads that use machine learning to place different ads at optimal positions on a publisher’s website and more.

This all sounds good, but it can’t all be good?

AdSense is very strict with regard to its program policies and invalid traffic. Publishers need to adhere to the program policies and keep their website free from invalid traffic. Otherwise, they can end up receiving revenue clawbacks or even getting their account banned.

They also only accept certain language websites, which might not make them accessible for everyone.

All of this might sound scary or harsh, but it’s industry-standard practice. Google wants to keep the AdSense ad network as high quality as possible while serving both publishers and advertisers. They need to keep up standards to ensure advertisers get the exposure they pay for and publishers receive their cut of the money paid by advertisers.

Should I join or not?

Yes, if your website is allowed to join AdSense, do so! It’s the quickest path to starting to earn good ad rates. Their systems are set up that everyone can use it and make the most of their ads.
