As part of the AdSense activation process you can choose to preview how ads look on your site before they go live. You might want to do this if you're curious about what Google ads look like and where they'll appear on your site. In the preview, you can also choose to turn on Auto ads so that ads will appear on your site as soon as your account is activated.
If you didn't add a site when you created your AdSense account, first add your site and then see how ads look.
Add your site
- Sign in to your AdSense account.
- On the AdSense homepage, click Add site.

Tip: If you own multiple sites, you can add them now too. On the AdSense homepage, open the site selector and click Add another site.
