Ad Manager serves higher quality ads
Not true. AdSense and Ad Manager publishers have access to the same premium advertisers and certified buyers. You can serve high-quality ads from both AdSense and Ad Manager.
Ad Manager is a premium version of AdSense
Not true. Ad Manager is a different product from AdSense. AdSense is an ad network that offers high-quality advertiser demand, optimization insights, and easy-to-implement monetization opportunities. Ad Manager is a unified platform with granular inventory controls and other features that allow you to manage direct deals, third-party networks, and programmatic demand across desktop, mobile web and apps.
The ‘Allow and block ads’ tab of my account is the only place I can block ads.
In addition to blocking ads via the AdSense interface, you can install the Google Publisher Toolbar to block ads while viewing your pages in a Chrome browser. The Publisher Toolbar is a Chrome extension that lets you view up-to-date information about your AdSense account, offers an overview of your earnings and performance, and provides ad overlays with in-page reporting.
Because the ad is an image or rich media, there’s no way to find the destination URL without clicking the ad and violating AdSense policy.
As a publisher, you have a few options when trying to find out which URL you want to block:
- If you’re using Chrome, install the Publisher Toolbar extension mentioned above, which allows you to block ads as you’re seeing them on your site.
- In your AdSense account, you can opt into the Ad Review Center where you can see all of the ads shown on your site, including text, image, and rich media ads.
It’s impossible to reduce invalid activity

I don’t see any ads in the Shown Ads tab of the Ad Review Center, but I see ads on my site. The Ad Review Center doesn’t work!
The Ad Review Center is a tool that allows you to review individual ads and choose whether or not to let them be displayed on your pages. Ads in the Ad Review Center have shown within the last 30 days. If your site has not shown any ads within the last 30 days, no ads will show in the Ad Review Center. Also, if you have very low traffic on your site, you may not see ads in the Ad Review Center. After you’ve submitted the request to opt in to the Ad Review Center, please allow 24 to 48 hours for ads to begin showing under the Shown Ads tab.
Someone with adsense account who has ads embedded on their blog/website/article will make some money as long as a visitor opens the article (I assume they mean click on link that brings a visitor to a page with adsense ads embedded) then if the visitor clicks on an ad the site owner (who has the adsense account that embedded ads on their page/blog/article) will make a higher percentage on that click...
Some ads will pay for impressions as in fractions of cents per view & will show up as CPM under bid types but most publishers will normally get CPC ads that pay per click. Personally I doubt there are very many ads that will pay for both views & clicks
Page that gets a 1000 views and say X clicks will payout more than a page that gets 100 views and X number of clicks?
It makes no difference how many views a page gets on how much Adsense will may per click. Now some advertisers may placement target some pages & bid higher for some pages over others but Adsense has no control over that.
