How does participation in this programme affect my site's position in the Google search results?
Participating in Google AdSense does not affect your site's rank in Google search results and will not affect the search results we deliver. Google believes strongly in freedom of expression and therefore offers broad access to content across the web. Our search results are unbiased by our relationships with paying advertisers and publishers. We will continue to show search results according to our PageRank technology.
Adding the Google AdSense ad code or AdSense for search code to your site will not queue your pages for crawling by our main index bots. While our bot (starting with 'Mediapartners-Google') does crawl content pages for the purpose of targeting ads, this crawl is not associated with our main index crawl.
