About Google Adsense

Google Adsense is a well known way for publishers to automatically serve ads on their websites. Here you will be able to learn about implementation, as well as how to avoid and solve common problems.

The first thing an Adsense publisher needs to do, before placing ad-units on their site, is to make sure they meet the requirements by Adsense.

Something many of us forget, is to include a simple Privacy Policy on our website. But, aside from this, you also need to have a fairly decent website design, to avoid users accidentally clicking ads. You can read more about these requirements on the official Adsense website and blog.

Writing a Good Privacy Policies

Your Privacy Policy should be unique to your site, and reflect the actual personal information that you handle. Therefor, you should not just blindly copy someone else's privacy policy, but you can use it for inspiration.

Try to make your privacy policy more readable and beautiful, so that users will not be discouraged or confused when reading it. Link technical terms such as cookies and web beacons to relevant articles explaining them. Either on your own site, or on a site like Wikipedia.
