Google earlier this week announced that its mobile and Web advertising network, AdSense
, now supports Hindi, which it describes as one of the most widely spoken languages in India, and one that that has over 500 million speakers across the world.
The search giant, which makes a significant proportion of its revenue from ad sales, in a blog post said the move will help the AdSense platform support the "wealth of quality Hindi content" that is currently available online.
Emanuele Brandi, Product Sales Lead on behalf of the AdSense Internationalization Team, says in the blog post, "We're excited to launch AdSense Hindi language support [on Sunday] to help fuel even more quality content creation on the web, and to help advertisers connect with a rapidly growing online audience."
Brandi tells Hindi language-based site webmasters that they will now be able to earn money by displaying Google AdSense advertisements in Hindi.
Google details steps webmasters have to take to begin displaying Hindi Google AdSense ads, including making sure the website is compliant with the AdSense program policies, and signing up for an AdSense account by enrolling the Hindi website. Once the account is approved, webmasters simply have to add the AdSense code to start displaying relevant ads to users.
