On May 20, 2014 Google introduced their very first online course for AdSense, with the title “Optimizing AdSense”. The course is completely free and up on the successful completion of the course, you will receive a certificate.

Unfortunately, the certificate your receive is not a valid or legal certification and hence is something that you could only use for being proud of yourself. On the other hand, the course is really helpful if you are a beginner or intermediate AdSense publisher  and will surely take you to a new level of being a successful AdSense publisher, if taken sincerely.

Optimizing AdSense comprises of lots of new video tutorials, activities and even assessments after each chapter. There are three main units and each unit is divided in to 2 -4 sections excluding the activity section. Each chapter has both video and text tutorials, which actually gives you an option to select your preferred method of study.  Additional Resources are also available for each part of the course.


In order to begin your course, you need to register for the course with your gmail id and you will be asked to enter some information such as your Google AdSense publisher id, your website URL, etc. Once you are enrolled, you will be asked to take a Pre-Course Assessment which is used to measure your current knowledge on AdSense and after the course there is a ‘Wrapping Up’ of the whole content that was covered during the course and after that you are good to take the Final Assessment. But, if you are confident on the topics then you don’t need to go through all the lessons in spite you could skip those and take the final assessment.

In total, there are 17 video lessons of about 2 to 4 minutes which can be covered in 2 to 3 hours including the activity sessions. The course can be completed as per your timing which makes it free from any kind of deadlines or time limitations. The main focus of the course is to help you understand various concepts of AdSense optimization and make your journey as an AdSense publisher more easier and professional. They also have a forum for this course, that you can make use for asking questions and to get answered.
