According to Wikipedia,

Google AdSense is a program run by Google through which website publishers in the Google Network of content sites serve text, images, video, or interactive media advertisements that are targeted to the site content and audience.

These advertisements are administered, sorted, and maintained by Google.

To understand it simply,

Google AdSense is an ad network Where Advertisers Join the platform to advertise their company’s products and services on blogs and websites and all the works are managed by Google.

Publishers are the ones who own the websites and blogs that get connected with Google AdSense and,

Google will Place interactive advertisements of relevant advertisers on their blogs or website Instead of involving advertisers directly.

There are 2 ways you earn money placing ads on your website in both Google AdSense and other ad networks which are CPC and CPM.

For your kind information CPC is called COST PER CLICK which means how much an advertiser is willing to spend if someone clicks on their ads and visits the target page of the advertiser.

CPM means how much an advertiser is willing to spend if the ad has got over 1000 impressions or views within the blog post or the website.

Talking about factors that influence the earning in AdSense are the following.
