Adsense Could Be No More: Is Google About To Put The Nail In The Coffin For Thousands Of Websites

Updated on October 22, 2013

Is Google Adsense Going To Vanish

Websites that use Adsense should be concern about Google possibly getting rid of the popular program.

Adsense Has Plummeted
Google has released some numbers for their Q3 earnings and things were not looking good for Adsense, and now many people are left wondering what in the world is Google going to do with its Adsense program. In other words, it is possible that Google could one day just ax the entire program! As one can imagine, this could be devastated for many websites.

Why Would Some Sites Be Devastated If Adsense Vanished
Believe it or not but many website owners make a lot of money from Google Adsense, and if Google decided to get rid of their program, then thousands of website owners may lose their major source of income and be forced to close shop! This means that thousands and thousands of websites/small businesses may find themselves suddenly out of business.

What Is Google's Real Motive If They Get Rid Of Adsense
One may argue that Google's motive to get rid of Adsense (if there do) would be because they are making enough money in other markets, therefore they no longer need Adsense. However, the real motive could just be to get rid of small website and leave only the large ones to participate in the Google Adsense program. In other words, sites like WebMD and YouTube, and other Google owned sites.

Advice To Site Owners
My advice to site owners is the same advice that anybody in this industry would give, and that is to not put all of your eggs into one basket. In other words, don't just focus on having Adsense on your site, even if you are making the most money ever, because you may find yourself waking up one morning finding out that Adsense is no more because Google decided to get rid of it.

One thing is for sure, and that is throughout the last few years Google Panda, Penguin and so forth has hurt legitimate good websites, and now some sites may even suffer more if Adsense becomes obsolete.

      Wow, I wasn't aware of the real possibility that they might close down Adsense and that they're doing so badly. I think it's possible they favor the bigger sites too. Looks like all website owners should consider alternatives to Adsense; there are other ad programs out there.
