Earlier this week, Susan Wojcicki kicked off our 10th anniversary celebration in a live Hangout on Air and shared her thoughts on the future of AdSense. As we mark this important milestone, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on just how far we’ve come together.

AdSense started out offering only contextually-targeted text ads in 2003, and has evolved significantly since then. We’ve developed new features and products to help you earn with display, video, mobile web, in-game and custom search ads. With your feedback in mind, we’ve also added new reports, controls, and even a new interface to make it easier to manage your account.

Let’s take a look back at how much we’ve grown together in the last 10 years.

Thanks for all the support and feedback you’ve provided us along the way. In the years to come, we’ll continue to focus on creating an AdSense that can do even more for you. You’ve already seen that AdSense is becoming smarter, helping you improve your ad performance; in the future, we’ll bring you new features like automatic optimization of your ads in AdSense if you choose.

Please do continue to share your suggestions via our AdSense+ page, and we’ll keep innovating (beyond just a hidden anniversary game!) so that you can focus on creating great content.
