As per the service tax act,Service Tax now applicable on all Digital Ads, the advertiser would be required to pay Service Tax to the publisher and the publisher will then deposit this Service Tax with the Service Tax Department.
As advertiser is going to pay the service tax amount to google and then google is liable to pay the similer service tax amount to service tax authority.
so,publisher need not required to pay the service tax to service tax authority to avoid the double taxation.
As per service tax act,tax is not applicable on the same declared income.

Publisher service earnings are different to that of Digital ads marketing earning. So if you are blogger or publisher then service tax doesn't apply for the publisher earnings.
Because Google adsense is sharing the ad revenue with you on 68/32 ratio basis. So you can't charge them service tax as it is not service but more of revenue sharing for ad placements.
However if you are a digital marketer and take campaigns for clients to do adwords ads then service tax applies on your service. And you have to create invoice for clients that reflects that charges.
Not just limited to Google adwords services, if you do ads for facebook or other similar sites for clients. Then any service that you charge clients with, then the service tax applies in that case.
