Available to participate in a Google AdSense user study?

Participate in a User Study for AdSense


At Google we are always looking for ways to make our products better, and we'd love to get your opinion. You don't have to be a tech or business expert. We're looking to get a range of honest feedback on new and developing tools to make them better for everyone.

We are currently scheduling participants for a study that takes place 21st - 24th October 2019. Sessions will be conducted remotely and they won't last more than 60 minutes.

To participate you will need to:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Accept the terms of our Usability Non-Disclosure Agreement
  • Allow us to video or audio record the session
Participate in the user study

As a benefit, you will have the opportunity to influence new and existing features and to tell us what you like and what you think should be improved.


After participating in the study session, you'll receive a USD75 gift code by email from Perks, our incentives distributor, as a token of our appreciation. For international participants: You will receive local equivalent amount depending on country (eg. 1500 INR for India) of $75 USD, available as prepaid Visa or Mastercard in USD/CAD/EUR/GBP. Their online catalog includes gift cards from VISA and a variety of retailers in fashion, housewares, sporting goods, books and more. However, if receiving that type of gift from us is not in keeping with your employer's gift policy, we can make a substitution of Google swag (think coffee mugs and t-shirts) or a donation to the charity of your choice via Just be sure to let us know what your employer's policy allows.

We'll let you know if you are selected to participate.

Thank you for your time.

Get ready for the new and improved Auto ads
Visit Auto ads
We've developed a new version of Auto ads that gives you greater ability to customize the Auto ads experience for your users.
Depending on how you use Auto ads, we'll try to closely match your current Auto ads settings. If we can't do this, you'll see a notification in your AdSense home page. If there's no notification, you don't need to take any action.
What's changing?
Auto ads
Auto ads now work through any ad code If you've turned on Auto ads for a site or a portion of your site, even pages that only contain regular ad units will start showing Auto ads on that page automatically.
If there are specific pages you don't want Auto ads on, you can add those URLs to your Page exclusions. For example, you can turn off Auto ads on your home page or entire sections of your site.
Ads > Overview
Ads > Overview shows you a summary of your Auto ads settings for each of your sites.
Ad settings preview
Ad settings preview shows you how Auto ads will look on your site before they go live. When you make changes to your Auto ads settings, it can take up to an hour to apply on your site.
Placement exclusions allow you to delete specific ad placements inside the preview using the "delete" icon. Auto ads will immediately generate a placement in a new location for you to review.
Ad formats
Ad formats help you specify the types of ads that Auto ads places on your site.
Matched content allows content recommendations from your site combined with ads to be shown to your users.
Auto ads dynamically
Auto ads dynamically adjusts the number of ads in proportion to the length of each page. Ad load helps you control the number of ads you'd like to show on your pages.
We've updated reporting so that you can see Auto ads and manual ad unit performance side by side for each of your sites.
Auto ads settings
To tell us what you think of these changes, please Send Feedback using the link on the Ads > Overview page. We're looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
