Google has announced that it has included “Urdu” as officially supported languages for its Adsense program.
With this new development, all those Urdu websites — in Urdu fonts — will be allowed to display Adsense ads and earn money with them.
For those who don’t know, Urdu publishers were yet not allowed to display Adsense ads. There were, however, exceptions as some select (relatively bigger) publishers were allowed to use Adsense for content monetization.
If you are not familiar, Adsense is a Google platform that websites and publishers use to display ads on their websites. When users click on Adsense ads or view ads, publishers are paid on pay per click or pay per view basis.
Google said that it included Urdu as supported language after recent uptake of Urdu content on the internet.
Company has said that Urdu language websites can now apply for Adsense accounts and are encouraged to check their terms of services before applying to make sure that their chances of getting accepted into program are higher.
With this new decision, it is now likely that a lot of Urdu websites will be able to monetize their content and hence a growth in Urdu websites and its usage is just imminent.
