Google Adsense Does It Work?

What is Google AdSense programs? Not to be confused with Google Ads previously (Google AdWords). Google AdSense is a program operated by Google.

Website publishers in the Google system of content sites which serve texts, images, video, or interactive media advertisements that are focused on the site content and audience. These advertisements are organized, sorted, and maintained by Google. They can make revenue on either a per-click or per-impression basis. Google beta-tested a cost-per-action service, but ceased operation in October 2008 in preference a Double Click offering (also owned by Google).

In Q1 2014, Google earned US $3.4 billion ($13.6 billion annualized), or 22% of total revenue, through Google AdSense.

AdSense is a contributor in the Ad Choices system, so AdSense ads typically include the triangle-shaped AdChoices icon.

This system also works on HTTP cookies. Google Adsense does it work? The 11.1 million websites it’s generating revenue for are definitely sure it works.

How Much Does Adsense Pay Per 1000 Views?

A website getting an average of 3 pages per visit, each with 2 ad units and an impression CPM of $1 would therefore earn $6 per 1000 visits. CTR :

The bigger part of AdSense bids are per click, so the Click Through Rate of your ad units.

Has a huge effect on income performance.

One website reports that an average for 100,000 views is $10,000.

That corresponds the $100 per 1,000 views.

To earn that amount of money per views you need to be a top negotiator and you also need to be a YouTube personality.

Also, a YouTuber can earn money by having their full video paid for.

11 Ways Of Getting Banned From Your Adsense Account:

Getting approved by Google Adsense happens to be more challenging for most blogger. Due to the stern requirements that have been put in place by Google.

Even if you are approved, your account may not remain long under the plan. Typically if you do not abide the strict rules.

Your account is always under observation they make sure you are following Adsense policies. If you are planning to join Google adsense, please read beforehand.

In this post we will be looking at what you should avoid. So your account is not suspended or banned. The most common mistakes made by website users are:

Sending Ads Via Email:

Sending ads via email generally happens with affiliate groups or other ads networks that permit it, where you can incorporate ads within your posts to email subscribers.

This is not permitted by Google, since it is against their AdSense policies.

Altering The Adsense Code:

Don’t ever try to alter the Adsense code in any way, this may lead to the account being banned.

This happens mostly with programmers who may try to alter the code to achieve a given goal.

Using Paid Traffic Solely For Your Adsense Site:

This one can be tricky as Google does not like you buying traffic under program terms of service.

You can buy quality traffic from sites like Reddit, Facebook, Google Adwords or StumbleUpon.

Google dislikes sites which add no value to its users and only exists to make money.

I have to say a little hypocritical.

No surprise i guess.

Make sure paid traffic is not your only way of getting traffic.

Find other ways of getting traffic to your website like using social media networks.

Making Adsense Ads Sticky:

This may work well for other networks, it is against Adsense policy.

The use of sticky ads in the sidebar may result in your account getting suspended.

Placing Adsense Ads On 404 Page:

Never place ads on 404 error pages, exit pages, log in page or Thank you page.

Always make sure you place ads on pages that are active with enough original content.

Invalid Clicks:

Never click on your own ads or ask anybody to click on your ads.

Google will know this and suspend your account.

Tricking People Into Clicking Ads:

Using tactics that trick people in to clicking on ads like, click here or using pop ups or just any dodgy things.

If you no it ain’t right don’t do it.

You will get your account suspended.

Hosting Copyrighted Content:

A definite no if found to be running Adsense ads on a site that happens to be copyrighted content.

Like movies, music or any other copyrighted files, you will be banned from the program.

Making Ads Look Like Content:

It is OK the make your ads blend in with your posts on your website by altering the color or size.

Don’t make it look entirely like your content on the blog or website. Your users should be able the see the Adsense ads, and recognize it from the content.

Sharing Adsense Codes & Publishers Id:

Adsense codes and publishers ID are not to be shared with anyone else.

By sharing your details, it will put your account in danger of being shutdown.

Linking To Sites That Distribute Illegal & Copyrighted Content:

This one is easy to understand.

Don’t link to sites that are dubious in content.

As this will upset AdSense.

Below Is The Content That Is Not Allowed For Adsense Sites Include:

  • Hacking/Cracking
  • Gambling/Casino sites
  • Adult content
  • Racist content
  • etc.

Adsense approval ways


I have to say until i wrote this post i knew none of these rules.

Hope you learned something new with me.

The bottom line if you want to have an account with Google AdSense.

You best adhere to their strict policies.

Please read their policies before embarking on the journey into advertising.

By all accounts it can be lucrative.

My suggestion is not to put all your eggs in one basket.

Like the stock market diversification is the golden rule. I would love to hear your thoughts about this post or this site in general.

  1. Hi, Shane.

    Thanks for this lesson about Google Adsense.  I, too, did not know about all these “Rules” so I’m glad I found this.

    It’s not my normal practice to read completely through these types of things as they can be rather lengthy and I don’t remember everything I read either.  That said I do agree that we should read them.  It is, after all, in our best interest to do so.

    You have laid it out pretty good here so it may be a good idea to Bookmark this page for reference when I get to do this on my own site.  

    Only one question. Are the adds placed based on the content of the website?

    I will be returning to read this again, thanks,


    • Hello Wayne, 

      Appreciate you reading my post. 

      Thank You for the comments and the questions. 

      It was a bit of a eye opener for me. 

      Happy you were able to get some good information from my post. 

      To answer your question on Ad placement they will generally place ads suitable for your content. 

      Let’s say you are a YouTuber with many subscribers that could change the variety of ads. 

      I am no expert in this matter, as i have no ads on my website.

      Regards Shane.
