Google Adsense

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: Adsense is one of the most effective means to earn money with either a blog or channel through ad monetization.

Pros:

Google AdSense is one of my favorite( and ultimately, the company's best) ways to increase all sales outreach. We help clients to monetize their business and It has helped us to continuously deliver accurate and quality results which keep 96% of our clients "EXTREMELY SATISFIED". It wouldn't be easy (cause as a beginner, it shouldn't) but, in the long run, it tends to be very beneficial when you acquire a good mastery of it. But I love how organized and simple the back office looks. It's very clean and easily navigatable. Ads placements are super professional and it gives higher chances to make more money from certain types of traffic and niches too. I believe, Google Adsense is the best in terms of smart placements- compared to others.

Cons:

Poor customer service with no live chats. It's true Google receives billions of similar requests every single month but, what if users fall into complex situations like account hacks or something else? Well, It could be more fun if they actually provided live support.

Best way to monetize your content

5.0 5 months ago

Comments: Great experience, easy to setup, fast and now you know you will get paid extra for your time making content.

Pros:

Is easy to setup and ads are showing immediately after setup. In 2024 the shared revenue has increased and the way AdSense displaying ads maximize the revenue. I can say it is the best.

Cons:

The payments are made next month after you pass the payments threshold. When adding a new website and is rejected they won`t tell you the reason for the rejection, just send you an email that the website violates Terms and Conditions, even if is not.

Get the best of your content

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Overall, Google AdSense is the best ad network i used, has higher pay rate for ads and these are not intrusive or slow down your website.

Pros:

Setting up the ads on your website is very easy, placing the Adsense code in header, if you opt in for automatic placement the ads will show in the most relevant places. If you dont want auto ads placing the desired ad format in the content is made with adding a small code there. The payments are made faster than other ads network is from what I saw is higher.

Cons:

Terms and Conditions might be a little ambiguous and approving the website can take some time.

The worst publisher ever!

3.0 2 years ago

Comments: It's an example of how not to run a business.

Pros:

The ease of use is certainly it's main advantage...

Cons:

...but everything else is a mess. I had my site approved once. Then when I changed domain, I coundn't make the ads show on the website anymore. Adsense started rejecting me. I've made then tons of changes to try fix the thing but nothing worked out. I've tried then to reach out the support, which is literally non-existing. there is only a forum with "expert users" who may or not decide to say something to use, very generic or unprofessional. No google employee whatsoever. I've only read somewhere on this forum that you may have an email contact with someone working on google ONLY if you have a solid income in Adsense. This is extremely disrespectful.
