AdSense basics

The difference between AdWords and AdSense

The Google AdWords program enables you to create advertisements which will appear on relevant Google search results pages and our network of partner sites. To learn more about AdWords and begin advertising immediately, please visit www.adwords.google.com.

The Google AdSense program differs in that it delivers Google AdWords ads to individuals' websites. Google then pays web publishers for the ads displayed on their site based on user clicks on ads or on ad impressions, depending on the type of ad.
