In light of the crisis in Ukraine, we are pausing Google’s monetization of Russian Federation state-funded media. We will continue to actively monitor the situation and make adjustments as necessary.
You can create a monetized Programmable Search Engine from your Google AdSense account to make money on contextually-relevant ads placed into the search results. Advertisers compete for placement in the search results, and when someone clicks on one of their ads, you can make a portion of the revenue.
If you don't already have an AdSense account, get one here. Once you've joined AdSense, you can make money off of your search engines by creating a "Search engine" ad unit from your AdSense account in Google Adsense.
Note that if you create a new AdSense account, you'll receive a confirmation email that you can use to activate your account. You won't start making money until you have completed this activation process.
Revenue is only shared for ads that appear using the Search Element deployed on your own site. No revenue is shared if:
- the user leaves your site; for example, by clicking on the Search on Google links,
- or for ads shown on the "Public URL" of search engines,
- or for search engines that use the Google hosted layout.
For any queries/concerns related to Programmable Search Engine Adsense monetization, please post your queries in the Community Forum.
Note : You cannot enable revenue sharing on an existing Programmable Search Engine. Instead, create a new search engine ad unit from your AdSense account.
