Hello BCasa,


the two systems are independent. If you want to use AdSense just do so regardless of your AdWords account.


Just to  be clear:


AdWords is used to attract more traffic to your website: you have to pay for the service.

AdSense is used to put ads on your website: you can make money from your traffic.







Yes, I work at Google. I want all AdWords Advertisers to be happy and prosperous

Hello and welcome,


In addition to what Eric said, I would say that practically you cannot delete Adwords account. You can only delete a Google account which means that anything related to that account (be it Adwords, adsense, analytics or any other Google product) will be lost.


So one way could be that you cancel your Adwords account and keep running Adsense as Eric mentioned above. This would ensure that your ads will stop and once you clear all your billing, you will not be charged again in terms of Adwords. In order to cancel Adwords account, follow this reference.


Hope that helps!
