To be eligible for Matched content, your site must first meet AdSense minimum requirements for traffic volume and the number of unique pages.
You can find out if your site is eligible for Matched content by checking the Sites page in your AdSense account.
To check the eligibility of your site:
- Sign in to your AdSense account.
- Click Sites.
- Click Matched content.
If you don’t see Matched content under “Sites” then you’re not currently eligible to use Matched content.
- On the “Matched content” page, check to see if your site is listed:
- If your site is listed, you may place Matched content units on any of its pages.
- If your site isn’t listed, then it’s not currently eligible for Matched content.
If at least one of your sites is eligible, you’ll see the option to create Matched content units on the Ads page in your account. Learn how to create a Matched content unit.
Note: AdSense regularly checks the eligibility of sites. If your site isn’t eligible yet, feel free to check back later when you have more traffic and/or unique pages.
What If your site is a subdomain
Note that for subdomains (e.g., m.example.com, forum.example.com, etc.), the recommendations AdSense generates are across the entire top-level domain.
For example, if you place Matched content units on your eligible subdomain example.exampleblog.com, your Matched content units will include recommendations for all of the exampleblog.com subdomains.
What If you own multiple sites
If you’re a publisher with multiple sites, you might find that only some of your sites are eligible for Matched content. In this case, AdSense asks that you only place Matched content units on your eligible sites.
If you place Matched content units on ineligible sites, then AdSense won’t be able to populate the units with recommendations.
