How to Integrate Google AdSense with Next.js Using Environment Variables

Are you eager to start monetizing your Next.js website with Google AdSense? It's easier than you might think! In this guide, we'll walk you through the simple process of integrating AdSense into your project, leveraging the power of environment variables for a secure and streamlined setup.

Why Use Environment Variables for AdSense Integration?

Environment variables offer a significant advantage when it comes to handling sensitive information like your AdSense client ID. They provide a way to store your ID outside of your main codebase, making it much more difficult for unauthorized access. Plus, using environment variables simplifies the process of managing your AdSense configuration as your project grows.

Steps to Integrate Google AdSense in Your Next.js Project

1- Get Your AdSense Code:

  • Open your Google AdSense account.
  • Click on "Get Code."
  • Copy the provided script tag.

2- Set Up Your Next.js Project:

If you haven't already, create a new Next.js project (or use an existing one).

3- Import and Use the Script Component:

  • Open your layout.tsx file (or any relevant layout component).
  • Import the Script component:


  • Add the AdSense script tag within a Script component, replacing the placeholder with your actual AdSense client ID:


4- Securely Store Your AdSense Client ID:

  • Create an .env file in your project's root directory.
  • Add your AdSense client ID as an environment variable:


5- Access the Environment Variable:

  • Replace YOUR_ADSENSE_CLIENT_ID in the Script component with:



Important Considerations

  • Make sure the environment variable name in your .env file matches the one you use in the Script component.
  • Remember to prefix your environment variable with NEXT_PUBLIC_ to make it accessible on the client-side.
  • Double-check the correctness of your AdSense client ID.
