AdSense is a free service supplied by Google which allows you to display adverts on your web site. When visitors click these adverts, you can make a small amount of money.
If you wish to add advertising to your site, you can do so using the Google AdSense skyscraper in InstantPro.
As AdSense is a service provided by Google, you will need to have a Google AdSense account to use the service.
