If you are having a blog, you might want to monetize it. Adding ads to your blog is among the effective ways to monetize it.

In this article, I will show you how you can integrate Google AdSense into your NextJs app.

How do I get my site approved for google AdSense?

To have your site approved for showing Google ads, there are steps to follow carefully.

You can check these eligibility criteria here carefully to avoid being rejectedΒ 
in the first place.

Pro Tip: Before you request Google Adsense approval, make sure your website has at least 10 dynamic articles (content should be changing regularly) and a proper domain name.Β 

If your site is eligible for google AdSense, you will get a response from google onΒ how to get started.

It takes a few days to get approved but in some cases, it might take between 2 and 4 weeks.

If your site is approved for google AdSense, follow the following steps to integrate it into your NextJs appΒ 
and start showing ads.

Add your client in the NextJs _document script

pages/_document.tsx πŸ‘‡πŸ½

import { Html, Head, Main, NextScript } from 'next/document';
import Script from 'next/script';

export default function Document() {
  return (
    <Html lang="en">
        <Main />
        <NextScript />
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

change NEXT_PUBLIC_GOOGLE_ADS_CLIENT_ID. to the env variable containing your ads client id (ca-pub-*********)

Create an ad banner component

components/AdBanner.tsx πŸ‘‡πŸ½

import { useEffect } from 'react';

const AdBanner = (props) => {
  useEffect(() => {
    try {
      (window.adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
    } catch (err) {
  }, []);

  return (
      className="adsbygoogle adbanner-customize"
        display: 'block',
        overflow: 'hidden',
export default AdBanner;
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Get Google ads block codes from your adsense dashboard.

Notice that we are using the default code from the ad banner component above ☝🏾

Thanks for the article. can I resize the ad banner to whatever I want?

Yes, in the AdSense dashboard, you can set ad units to a custom fixed size. However, keep in mind that this choice may limit the number of ads displayed on your page if not many ads fit the size you've set.

In the Adsense dashboard, I see. I should read it through the document before applying the AdSense later. Thank you for the answer and the article :) πŸ‘

I don't think you can be able to test it locally
Google doesn't allow displaying ads in a development environment or non-live websites
