[Basic Guide] How to Create Adsense account?

As a blogger, you must have heard of AdSense, which is one of the best contextual advertisement programs from Google. In this post, we will see how you can create AdSense account for your Website. There are many AdSense alternatives, but no matter what network you try Adsense is certainly the best. Though, if you are good at marketing, you can look into Affiliate marketing and my post on Affiliate or AdSense will give you my personal insight.

Guide To Create Adsense Account

I remember when I started Blogging, Adsense was something an alien word for me. While signing up for Adsense, I had to take help from my friends, and I was not sure if I was doing everything right. For beginners, who are not aware of Adsense:  It’s  an advertisement program for publisher started by Google[ See Wiki details]. They place contextual ads on your blog, and you will get paid when someone clicks on ads.

Here I’m compiling an essential guide for beginners who are not sure of, how to apply for  Adsense.

 

There are few requirements which you need to follow before you can apply for Adsense. You need to have a website. You should be above 18+, else apply using your parents name. Also, watch this video understand what your blog needs before applying for AdSense:

Steps to create Adsense account:

Adsense has changed the account approval process lately and here is new AdSense account approval process:

  • Sign up for Adsense
  • Add Adsense ads into your Blog
  • Your account will be reviewed & wait for acceptance or rejection mail.

Though new AdSense account approval process is quite lengthy, and now its two-way AdSense account approval process, but it will help us to maintain the quality of Adsense. Also before applying for AdSense make sure your website is following AdSense policies.

I believe, by now you have done your research on the above and here is how  you can sign up for Adsense.

Step by Step Guide to Create AdSense account

Go to Signup page for AdSense, and you will get an option to create a new Google account, or you can use your existing Google Account for signing up. If you have a domain specific email address, I will suggest you to use that for AdSense sign-up or else use your existing gMail address. So far, I have seen many shouters getting better success with domain specific eMail addresses.

Website Details:

 

Create AdSense account

This form is straight forward, as you need to enter your website address and select the content language. Also, read the terms and conditions mentioned on the signup page to learn more about AdSense. In Website URL, it should be your blog address and make sure to add it without HTTP://

Adsense contact information:

 

Adsense contact information

This is most important part, and I remember making couple of mistakes while signing up. Most important is Payee name. Make sure to use the same name under which you have a bank account. As Adsense will be sending you a check or EFT payment under that name. If you make a mistake here, changing payee name of your account would be difficult for many countries like India. Here is the list of countries which are not allowed to change the payee name after signing up. So ensure your bank account name and payee name is exactly the same.

Rest add your contact information and fill other details.

Accept Adsense policies:

adsense-policies

Read AdSense policies and put a tick mark in front of all three boxes.

Once done click on Submit and the next page, you can review your details. Make sure that all the details are accurate and up to date.

Signing up Email:

Adsense-Email-address

You can use your current Email address to sign up, or you can create a new Gmail id for Adsense. For fast approval, I would suggest you to use Zohomail, and create free domain specific email address.

In my case, While I tried signing up using generic @gmail address, I was rejected four times, but later on, when I applied using domain Email address, it worked and I got Instant AdSense approval.

Submit Adsense Tax Information

Once you have signed up for Adsense, you need to add AdSense codes into your blog. Adsense team will review your application again after adding the ad codes, and it will activate and will send you Adsense Pin. Which takes 1-2 months depending upon geographical position?

So, after everything is set up, in order to get paid from Adsense, you need to fill two information:

  • Please submit your Tax information
  • Please Enter your Pin

You will also need to submit Tax form, depending how you are entitled to do business. For certification of No U.S activities, and for Indian Adsense publishers, you can fill this tax info:

Indian Publisher Tax Info Adsense

AdSense Pin:

You will receive AdSense Pin via mail once you reach the threshold of $10 with your AdSense account. You need to add the Pin to your Adsense account. You will start receiving payment once your AdSense account reaches $100 threshold. You should read this guide to learn about enabling direct bank payment for AdSense.

I hope this guide will help you to create Adsense account. Just in case if you don’t have a Blog, you can refer to my earlier tutorial on How to Install & Setup WordPress blog.

    hi harsh
    and also hi to the commenters.
    i specially came here to give a note for commenters.
    Every bloggers wants an google adsense account dont they.
    there are been lots of rumours around the web that before applying for adsense your blog must be strong, it should have many posts and what not. just cut the crap out guys.
    focus on providing quality niche and posts on your blog and you are already through adsense.
    the same was with me.
    a few days ago i read this post and applied for adsense.
    and yesterday on 16 feb i was accepted, i was so damn suprised.
    why?
    because my website is new, i just have 28 posts, i get around 20 visitors a day and still my website needs a lot of finishing touches.
    well i thought that i will be rejected but who knows whats google looking for.
    i request all bloggers not to wait for the perfect time to apply for adsense go ahead and apply today.

    Hello Harsh

    I m building a website , where i ll provide direct downloading links of software’s from other sites.

    I want to know is it a valid website for Google adsense account???? .
    Please assist me on this .

    thanks :)

    • says

      @Vinay
      If you are linking to official site and not some warez or illegal software downloading site, there is no issue. Though I would recommend to link to the download page of the official site, instead of giving the direct links to the software (.exe files), as when the software maker updates their software and it changes the file name, your site will not be left out with broken links.

      • vinay says

    Google Adsense is a powerful tool for one to earn that additional revenue from one’s website or blog. Once you have a high traffic flow for your website or blog, it will be good to add Google Adsense advertisements which can be both beneficial for your readers and yourself. :)

  4. says

    Nowadays Google is very selective about their ad network and ad publishing….

    So If you want to get your Account approved, Work On the following things and Google will surely welcome you in their network:

    1. At least 500 keywords on your website in your niche. assuming 10 Keywords per article that sum up to 50 well written articles by yourself (Not copied from anywhere).

    2. If you have a PageRank even if it is zero, then it is a plus. wait until Google notices you and your website.

    3. Professional design of your website leave those kiddish templates and build something simple and eye catching.
    You can check my site here : http://www.dreamiit.in

    4. Before applying consult to Webmaster tool and look for any problem your site has..

    If all done be honest to yourself and Go apply without any fear.. :)

And after some days i created http://teckop.blogspot.com with a new email account and while applying for adsense, i have submitted the same payee name and postal address which i have used it for my personal email address.
    Can you please suggest me an answer to get approved by adsense.thank you

  9. Ashok Sharma says

    Harsh, I recently applied for adsense and my application was rejected. Now, should I reapply with the same application or should I apply with a new application with a different email (a domain specific email, instead of gmail)? Is it ok for adsense? Will I get a message something like – “this website is associated with an unapproved application?”
    I also want to change the payee name which is not the domain owner?

    Sorry for so much questions, and thanks for such a great and useful website.

    • says

      @Ashok
      In this case, you need to reapply for new domain and not the same domain. Seems like they are rejecting your Application based on content which is hosted on your site earlier or you applied before and your application is rejected.
      If you have the first application and rejection Email, there will be a reapply link and kindly use it to reapply.

  10. chetan nada says

  12. akash says

    hello everybody would any genius help me to sort out my problem that i am submitting my website to adsense 3 times and it gots rejected with no reason i don’t know what to do with this site. This site is 5 months old and got genuine traffic of 30 to 40 persons per day i want to know what i can do to submit this website to google adsense account..

    • Yashraj Talan says

      See, you should read what AdSense sends you via email. You can get the same blog approved after multiple retries(you can also consider using a fresh account as email address) if you write good posts after each disapproval. That’s what they want. My blog also gets the same number of page views but my blog isn’t popular at all and frankly speaking, this is a very low number for the number of page views you should have(not MUST have) for AdSense approval. My blog isn’t approved yet and it’s a year and a half old. Don’t worry, try again after some more posts(2-5 would be okay).

  13. Lucent says

    If I start a blog and publish like 15-20 original and unique posts, Am I going to have to wait for SIX months in order to become eligible to apply for the Adsense program?

  14. Nihar says

    Harsh, Great guide for newbies.

    To be frank, I agree with most of the commentators here. It is still a myth and a bit luck / unluck.

    I have seen that few friends even after having genuine content not getting approved and few friends with copied content having approved.

    It is a mystery and one more thing is if a guy tries from any of the Asian country chances are less as compared to non-asian country and i think this is true.

    What do you think Guys (harsh)?

  15. Fabrizio Van Marciano says

    I only have one dig with Google Adsense, it’s way too easy for anyone to apply these days, there are simply too many Google Adsense abusers which is quite frustrating in itself, and then there is the problem of individuals using it to create MFA sites which is yet again another kick in the teeth.

  16. Akshay says

    in my opinion no one can truly understand google….
    but i heard that nowadays google adsense is very strict for indian users and they dont approve an account for indian users easily

  17. Shyam S. Sharma says

    Hello Friends, One tip from me……
    Before 6 month I apply for adsense account with my yahoo ID And one month old blogspot blog with 15 posts. After apply for adsense account I don’t write any posts and always check for adsense approval.
    Almost 10 Days later That was the answer from adsense team…….

    We did not approve your application for the reasons listed below.

    Issues:

    – Login access only

    ———————

    Further detail:

    Login access only: During our review of your website, we found that the
    majority of pages on your site are behind a login or there is restricted
    site access

    That was my mistake …….
    I reapply for adsense account with same yahoo ID and Same blog with Continuous Writing…..

    And that was the answer after 7 days…..
    Congratulations!
    Your adsense account has been approved.

    So my dear friends my advice is that you no need to gmail id, you no need to your domain id, After apply for adsense account Please Continuous your post Writing…… Not See only for Adsense approval. It’s my experience.

    BTW sorry for my poor English i’m not a expert writer like you.

  18. Pradeep says

    My adsense account was created in 2006 and I signed up with a gmail account. The account was activated immediately and I use the same account for all the websites I own now. Google Adsense team is updating its sign up policy regularly. I am curious to see what do they require to sign up in the coming months!?

  19. Digital Bunch says

    I just submitted a new application to Google Adsense. I expect to get approve :)

    Thanks for sharing you tips!

  20. Rahul solanki says

    My google adsense account was approved instantly in my first attempt.My adsense account is 3 years old and with 1 post my adsense account was approved.I don’t know why but i think it was my luck.

  21. MagicalMumbai says

    My site is 6 months old (www.magicalmumbai.com). I applied for an adsense account and got rejected, using a gmail address.

    For the moment, am using ads from a friends account… But when I applied for adsense, I had removed all ads.

    Any idea, what could be going wrong and probably what I could change and re-apply?

  22. Girish says

    Any one have list of PPC options other than Adsense. I am pretty sure that no one can stand near to google adsense. But for Harsha this can be a next post topic.

    Chitika is one such but when compared to adsense it pays too less

  23. Manish says

    I used to blog on blogspot 1 year and I applied for Google adsense programme

    Result : Application not approved

    I bought a domain and applied again

    Result : Application not approved

    Bought a new hosting and domain and have applied now hopefully they accept but there are few chances because my blog is new and with less content…so they might reject. But who knows I get lucky this time :D

    I think adsense should have few changes.

    They should not consider the 6 month old blog rule. You said its a myth but most of the blogs including mine didnt get accepted just because of that

    • Sharat says

      haha .. Finally your application has been approved. Anyways Best of Luck !!

      Thanks Harsh . . . Surely beneficial for most of them not having Adsense Account Application approval yet. :)

  24. Girish says

    Harsh,
    Is it ok if i apply for second adsense account. I know we can use channels to separate the domains and use the same account for multiple domains. But still i would love to have two adsense accounts for two set of domains i have (one is tech and downloads) other is (shhhhh its a secret) :)

    does their TOS says anything about that ?

  25. Ninja Affiliate says

    Using Email Domain- This is great tip for newbie to get adsense approval fast. Thanks harsh for sharing this tip.

  26. usman says

    My site was 7 months old and i get adsense in a day but adsense ban my account very next day. I don’t know, why?

  27. Ayush Chand says

    I applied for Adsense but got rejected telling that my postal address was incorrect. Harsh, Can you please tell us the format to submit the address? Many tell that we should submit it US Format. :(

    • says

      Ayush it happened with me…
      Folloe the format I mentioned above..!! Yes it should be in U.S. format and if Google rejected your blog, in the Email you will get a link to reapply, use that and reapply. Most of the time Google team approve blogs after you retry 3-4 times.

      • Ayush Chand says

        The problem was the postal address. Got approved this time even though my blog is 1 month old! Guess the 6 months old requirement is just a myth!

  28. Sathish @ TechieMania says

    Getting an AdSense account is still a myth to me. When I applied using one of my blog (4 months old) they didn’t approve my application. But when I do the same by using a blog(just one month old) they approved my application. It might sound weird, but thats how it worked for me.

  29. Pumama says

    I already have Google Adsense Account but don’t know how to make money with this account because my site is new and doesn’t have enough traffic :D

  30. Saket Jajodia says

    As I think it is not important to use our domain email ID, as because I got my blog approval in 1st time using Gmail ID, but it is important that your blog/website should be 6 month old…

      • Jagan Mangat says

        and mine was three months old with 30-40 per day traffic from Google(organic) and that too with gmail id!

      • Kartik@DailyTechPost says

        I agree with you Harsh even I got my adsense approved just after 2 months…and one of my fellow blogger got his Adsense approved via bloggerparty.com…

        • Basant | Cloud Computing says

          @Pritam: Though Google mentions 6 months old blog as a pre-requisite for AdSense for Indian publishers, I don’t think it’s a ‘Policy’…It’s just a guideline to filter-out spam blogs.
          If you’ve a blog with good+unique content apply for AdSense after 2 months. I am an Indian publisher & got my AdSense a/c approved after around 2 months. Though I’ve a Google app Id, I had applied with my gmail id & got approved in 3 working days in Dec 2009.

  31. Mani Viswanathan says

    Quite weird that Blog email works & generic Gmail doesn’t. I got Approved quickly when I made two good blog posts @IndyaRocks. For those who are struggling to get approved, try your luck there.

    • says

      @Mani Generic Gmail account works but from my experience Google apps for domain works fast. I know it’s weird but probably this is one of rare case which happened with me. :)

      • Radu Tyrsina says

        I always wondered – why is Google Adsense so popular amongst indian bloggers? Harsh, I think this is a good idea for a post

      • Pritam @ Specky Geek says

        I think your account approval had nothing to do with email address [unless you have a history :)]. If you have a six months old blog/site with unique content, you will get approved. Sometimes Google Adsense guys mistake genuine content for copied stuff. Adding some more good posts solves this problem.

        • Sushil says

          Google Adsense is not a ‘ghost’. My request was approved within 4 days (Google’s official Adsense time frame). It is true that Adsense requires unique sensible informatory content to users.
          Nothing else is to worry about if you are genuine. Imagine you are going to visit your website, then think.
          Any further queries, ask on my site.
