Free custom search engine with no ads
1
Is there any reason to pay the $5 per thousand queries to avoid ads right now? It looks like the free-tier, which is normally ad supported, is not currently showing ads.  If this changes, can we please be notified so that we can switch to the paid tier and not show ads to our users?

Hi Simon,

By default, Ads are displayed with Programmable Search Engine results. Please review the current Programmable Search Engine offerings:

If you are looking to disable Ads, you can consider following the below options:
 
i) If your organisation is a non-profit, then you can have Ads disabled:
 
ii) You can use the API (Key enabled from Cloud Developer Console) with your Programmable Search Engine and retrieve results using JSON API without Ads:

iii) You can upgrade your Programmable Search Engine to an Ads-Free version by adding an API Key in "Paid Element API key" under search engine control panel > Setup > Ads section. With this settings, you can implement the Search Engine implementation code on your website and no Ads will be displayed. For this feature to work, you will be billed for your queries.

Please review the document below for details:
 
iv) You can create an Adsense account and have it integrated with your Programmable Search Engine and can control to configure to not shTow competitors' ads on your website. Please review the document:

Thanks

Thank you for the response. Right now, I am getting ad-free search results without having to pay by doing the following:

1. Connect the Programmable Search Engine to Adsense
2. Elect to show ads.
3. But then ads are NOT shown because "to ensure a high quality experience, we are reviewing Programmable Search Engine ad traffic quality. It may take several weeks for revenue sharing to begin".

Looking at other posts to this help board, there have been no ads in the free ad-supported service for more than 6 months now. Long may it continue! But if it does stop, can you please post a notification here? Otherwise, I have to check my site regularly to make sure that ads are still not being shown.

Thanks!

Hi Simon,

As you have integrated your Programmable Search Engine with your Adsense account and not seeing Adsense Ads because to ensure high quality experience for our advertiser, we are reviewing Programmable Search Engine Ads traffic quality. It may take a short period to resume Adsense Ads and revenue sharing.
 
We have internally fixed this and the Adsense Ads and revenue sharing will start soon. But, I do not have any ETA for the same.
 
You do not need to do anything at your end. Once resumed, Adsense Ads will automatically be served in your results and revenue sharing will begin.

Thanks
