Waalaykum Salaam,

1. You are being paid for your article and not the ads so that is OK. (You can refer to link this for further reference: Money earned by google ad sense

2. If  you have earned Haram money and can not distinguish between the Haram and Halal amounts, then khums is to be paid on the entire amount once
