What is AdSense

Google AdSense is a free, easy way for you to earn money by allowing ads to display next to your content. After signing up for AdSense, you’ll receive a code to add to your website to indicate where the ads will display. Advertisers will then bid to show their ads on your website and the highest paying ads will show in the areas you choose. Google then handles the billing and you earn money by simply adding ad space to your website! In addition, AdSense will match ads to your website based on your content and visitors, ensuring the ads that display are relevant to your website and audience.
