Now, this module is not intended to be a complete how to on any of these because the tools and the screens will change pretty regularly. I just want to touch on a few key areas and concepts of each one in order to tie them into what you’ve already learned. Some of these tools have terms of service restrictions on making stats public, most notably AdSense, so I’ll block out certain areas of the screen when it’s needed. Let’s get started with Google AdSense.
