Overall Satisfaction with Google AdSense

I have been using Google AdSense for maybe 18 years as a monetization tool for my websites and web-based games. I used mostly banners on websites and on HTML5 games. I currently use Google AdSense less since most of my properties moved into mobile, and on mobile, I use Google AdMob, which is a mobile arm of Google AdSense as I understand it.
  • Google AdSense monetizes web sites
  • Google AdSense provides high quality inventory
  • Google AdSense provides a variety of unobtrusive options for banners
  • Google AdSense should monetize mobile applications
  • Google AdSense should monetize Mac native applications and games
  • Google AdSense should pay out more for a click for tier 1 countries traffic
  • Google AdSense is the default option to monetize web sites
  • Google AdSense provides high quality inventory of ads and good match
  • Google AdSense maintains high quality security and privacy standards
  • Google AdSense helped me jump start my business
  • Google AdSense has always been the most reliable option to monetize web traffic
There are other platforms to monetize web traffic, for example, LifeStreet and others. Unfortunately, developers on Facebook may only use products approved by Facebook, and Google AdSense is not among the approved products. Besides that, Google AdSense provides good ROI, high quality for web sited and other web-based properties.

Would you buy Google AdSense again?


Google AdSense is well suited for old-school websites and HTML 5 games as it provides good quality inventory, a good match. At the same time, the banners are unobtrusive. Google AdSense is less appropriate in mobile app scenarios in native games and apps. Google AdSense is less appropriate and even forbidden on social networking sites such as Facebook and HTML5 games platforms.
