As a blogger, you have surely heard of the AdSense program from Google, one of the best contextual advertisement programs available.Google AdSense is the most popular option for monetizing online content, but many bloggers don't know how to create a Google Adsense account. Creating an AdSense account is very easy thing to do and for being accepted you just need a website or a blog indexed by Google, which should contain a minimum of 10 pages and most important, not violating Google Adsense policies.
In this post, I will show how you can create an AdSense account for your website.
You know, There are many AdSense alternatives available, but no matter what network you try, you will likely find that Adsense is the best. If you have some marketing skills, however, you may also want to look into affiliate marketing. My post on Affiliate vs AdSense will give you my personal insights on both networks.
Step-by-Step Guide to Creating a Google AdSense Account:
sign up for Google Adsense
First, go to the Signup page for AdSense, and you will see an option to create a new Google account, or you can choose to use your existing Google account. If you have a domain-specific email address, I suggest you use that to sign up for your AdSense account. Otherwise, use your existing gmail address.
Add Your Website Details
enter your main website/blog URL where you want ads to be displayed, then select your website content language. For the website URL use your blog address, and make sure to add it without HTTP://
Add Adsense contact information
This is the most important part. The “payee name” is very important. 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 the payee name of your account would be difficult in many countries including India. Here is the list of countries which are not allowed to change the payee name after signing up. So make sure your bank account name and payee name are exactly the same.
Next add your contact information and fill in the other details. Double check your payee name.
Accept Adsense policies
Read the AdSense policies and put a check mark in the boxe.
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.
Post sign-up Work
Once you have signed up for Adsense, you need to add AdSense codes to your blog. The Adsense team will review your application again after you add the codes, and your account will be activated. It will take some 5-7 days so be patient.
Submit Tax information
You will also need to submit a tax form, depending on how you are entitled to do business. For certification of No U.S. activities, and for Indian Adsense publishers, you can fill in this tax information. (Shown in Image)
You will receive an AdSense Pin by Post 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 the $100 threshold.
