AdSense gives publishers freedom. It lets publishers like Phillip Martin follow their passions and allows others to enjoy free time, be creative, and earn a living.  Each AdSense publisher has a story.

During our Google+ Hangout, publishers shared the value they find in using Google AdSense.

In this video, meet Todd Sarouhan, the creator of AdSense lets him write about and travel to Costa Rica, a place he knows and loves.

Check our blog and AdSense +page to meet more AdSense publishers.
