One of these areas is health.Health is a highly sensitive area at the same time it is known as one of the topics that users search the most on the internet. Therefore, web sites related to health, the information contained in the contents, the interest and the reputation of the contents presented to the users are considered as important issues. On the other hand, financial resources and advertising policies of health websites are another important point. It has been determined that the constraints related to advertisement in health are evaluated in digital format in different ways, and this study was carried out with this idea.Within the scope of the study health related keywords were identified and health websites were identified by Google search. A Google Adwords session was launched to identify how often these sites were used, and 'most clicked' sites were included in the study.
