You might have heard about Contributor through recent posts from the Google team, publishers, and the press. Today we want to share more about the product and provide you an easy way to promote this new revenue source to your site visitors.

Think about your own experience surfing the web. Are there publishers whose content you particularly love and keep going back to? Do you wish you could support these publishers, but see fewer ads? We’ve learned that users want an option to directly support the open web and the people who make it hum with great content, while also seeing fewer ads.

We understand that as a publisher your most pressing concerns are keeping your users happy and generating revenue to support your business. Contributor presents a new option to meet both of these goals.

Here’s how it works
With Contributor, users pick a monthly contribution level (of $2, $5, or $10) and those funds are used to pay for the sites they visit.

By choosing to contribute to publishers, users essentially participate in the ad auction. If the user’s bid wins, no ad is shown, but you’ll get paid by Google as you normally do when ads are served.

Help spread the word
Let your visitors know about Contributor by putting a customized Contributor badge on your site.

We’ve made it easier and faster to apply for AdSense and get your account approved.

Starting today, you’ll have immediate access to your AdSense account once you sign up. Previously, when you applied for AdSense, you’d need to wait for your account information to be approved before you could access your account and place ad units on your site. Now you can create ad units and place them on your site right after signing up for AdSense.

To get started with AdSense:
  1. Make sure your website is compliant with the AdSense program policies.
  2. Sign up for an AdSense account by enrolling your site.
  3. Add the AdSense ad code to your site.

It typically takes 48 hours for our specialists to complete the site review after you add the code to your site. Until you pass this review step, your ad units will remain blank. Once your site is approved, ads will be displayed on your site and you can start earning money from your content.
Learn more about the new application process in the AdSense Help Center. This new process is now in place for many countries and we’re looking forward to even more publishers joining the AdSense family. Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
