Google Page Creator and AdSense

Add Your Comments

The word on the street is that Google has sent out emails to Google Page Creator account holders letting them know that they can now add AdSense to their pages. I haven’t received any such email, and looking into the source of the story, it all comes down to one person saying it’s so.

I don’t know if it’s official or not, but I do know that people are managing to make JavaScript run on their sites, so AdSense addition shouldn’t be tough.

I’m not really sure if anyone is going to make a ton of money from AdSense on Page Creator sites, whether or not Google has officially invited everyone to join in. For one thing, unless you do some extra … well, we’ll just call it “HTML stuff” … you are quite limited in what you can do on a site. Hard to build a lot of traffic that way. Second, and probably more of a nuisance, is that your site’s domain name is not only under the Googlepages.com domain, but also includes your Gmail account name – more spam anyone??

To anyone who is serious about making some money with AdSense, I don’t really see them using Google-Page-Creator-type pages to do so. Too many limitations and/or hoops to jump through to overcome the limitations in a way that will be acceptable to Google. My advice (for what it’s worth LOL) – stick to your own domain for AdSense if you’re serious about it. At this point, Page Creator is just not a player in this game. As my mother-in-law used to say, “maybe later, better”.
