    [Basic Guide] How to Create Adsense account?

    As a blogger you must have heard of Adsense, which is one of the best contextual ad network 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 with marketing, you can look into Affiliate marketing and my post on Affiliate or Adsense will give you my personal insight.

    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 a basic guide for beginners who are not sure of, how to apply for  Adsense.

    AdSense Signup Process

    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.

    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 and rejected.

    Though new adsense account approval process is quite lengthy and now it’s 2 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 would 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 list of countries which are not allowed to change 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:

    adsensepolicies thumb

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

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

    Signing up Email:

    AdsenseEmailaddress thumb

    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 sign up using your Google apps address. i.e [email protected] [ Read: How to set up Google apps for domain ].

    In my case, While I tried signing up using generic @gmail address, I was rejected 4 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 every thing 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

    Similarly, once you receive the Pin, add it into your Adsense account and from the next month payment cycle, you will start getting paid. Minimum Payout for Adsense is $100.

    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 create a BlogSpot blog. Meanwhile do share your tips on quick adsense approval?

    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. :)

    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.. :)

    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.

    Harsh Agrawal

    @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.

    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).

    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?

    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)?

    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.

    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.

    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!?

    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?

    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

    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.

    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.

    @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.

    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.

    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.
