Can I add Adsense Ads on my Google Sites? How to Monetize Google Sites? 

The short answer is a big NO. You can't! You simply cannot add Adsense Ads on your Google Sites. The new version of Google Sites is very easy use since it has a Drag and Drop Website Builder function. It is an great tool if you want to build a simple professional looking websites in minutes. Unfortunately, you are not allowed to make money commercially off your Google Sites using Adsense Ads. 

If you want to use Adsense Ads to make money off your blog and you don't want to pay hosting fees, just use Blogger and buy your own cheap domain at Namecheap

If you are an old user of Google Sites like me you might remember that there used to be an option to connect your Google Site to your AdSense account and earn from it. It was easy to do, all you need is go to "More actions" drop-down menu located at the top right of your Google Site, and select Manage site. Then just click on "Monetize" located on the left side of the page. Then on the "Make money with Adsense" pop up window, click on "Monetize this site button". Not anymore, it's gone now. If you can see other Google Sites with Google Adsense on it they probably kept ads on Google Sites that had been approved years ago, but I doubt it.
