Google Sites is Google’s way of letting everyone and anyone create a free website utilizing a pre-built template, and an online WYSIWYG editor; and of-course Google makes it easy to monetize your Google Sites website with Google Adsense (seeing a pattern here?). In the past you’ve always had full control over your Google Adsense ad types, placement, and appearance – and this was great considering you did not have to spend any money to start generating an online income. This however is all about to change. As of August 20, 2013 – Google has announced that there will no longer be any ability to modify the appearance of your Google Adsense ads within your Google Sites website.
Granted any existing ads will continue to show, as they are, and you will be credited for them as usual. So, if you are using Google Sites, now might be a great time to go ahead and monetize it your own way while you still can. If you need some help, I am running a Free Google Adwords Credit Giveaway right now. Wonderful timing, is it not? Go sign up, monetize your website, and make some money.
