What is Google AdSense?
Google AdSense is the most popular advertising network which runs by Google that allows website owners, bloggers to monetize their content by showing advertisements in the form of text, image, video on the site.
Google AdSense is risk free in terms of integration and collecting money from the advertisers, as Google takes care of it for us. AdSense offers cost-per-click ads (CPC) which means that you earn money every time a user clicks on the ad on your website. The amount received per click varies based on a variety of factors.
The first thing is to create an account in Google AdSense. If you already have Gmail account then it will be just few clicks away. Once you have submitted the application, Google will review the information which you have provided in the form and give the response within 6 to 8 hours of time.
After Google first review passed, you will receive email confirmation regarding the same. Now you can login to your AdSense account to get your code.
Creating Ad Units
After logging into the Google AdSense account click on My ads and click New Ad Unit.
Then you will be asked to select the Ad Type from ‘text and display ads’, ‘In-feed ads’, and ‘In-article ads’.

Once you’re done with this setup, simply click on Save and get code button. You will be prompted with a message “Ad successfully created”, and you will also see the Ad code.
